Default "Gipsy Moth" 1/2a scale drawings?

I've been building a peanut scale Gispy Moth this winter for fun, but my fingers are a bit too big and clumsy for that kind of stuff...
Does anyone have any 1/2a scale drawings, or know of a source?

(could simply enlarge the drawings 3 times I guess but things like the wingprofile don't seem very scale like)

PS I've attached a picture of the current build status, I bought this "kit" on a closeout sale in 1980 and just didn't come around to starting the build before this winter...

Check AMA Model Aviation archives on the web. There was a 1/2A Gypsy Moth plan and construction article just a few years ago. Span was 35 inches, engine was Norvel .061, if memory serves. Jim

Thanks, there seems to have been one in 2001. I'll try to order one of those.

FWIW, Keith Laumer published a 1/2A Tiger Moth in Flying Models in 1963. Nicely done for simple construction and a Babe Bee.

It's in post #13 of [link=http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_6245595/anchors_6245595/mpage_1/key_/anchor/tm.htm#6245595]The Monster Laumer Plans Thread[/link]

Yes, nice design, but it's a Tiger Moth, not a Gypsy Moth.
