Default Flying (Pivoting) Stabilizer for my 1970's Don Coleman Cutlass Supreme

I am scratch building Don Coleman's Cutlass Supreme from the early 1970's.

I would like to install a flying stab (a pivoting stabilizer) instead of a fixed stabilizer with moving elevators. I think someone like DuBro used to make shafts, bearings, and linkage connections to do this well. Does anyone know of parts and / or drawings to help me do a flying stabilizer correctly?

Note - This is a difficult web search because terms like flying stab(ilizer) now refer to electronic flying stabilization systems.

Thank you in advance for any assistance or ideas.

Ralph and All,

I have plenty of flying fork systems available and a few original Cutlass Supreme MK II kits as well.

Today I received this item from Leo. As described. Well packed. Shipped fast. It's an inspiring approach. IMHO - worth the price just for the info on the one page doc that comes with it. The molded parts are good quality. Thanks Leo.

Since you brought it up, I have to share my Service provided by Leo story.

I bought an R61Speed13 from Leo. By the time I got the plane built for it, Leo was no longer a Novarossi dealer, and my engine had a problem. SMT Distributing tole me to go to h*ll when I contacted them because i did not buy it from them..Leo bent over backwards for me, put me in touch with Allen at Planethobby, and the two of them got me the replacement parts to make my brand new engine run. Without Leo, I would have a paperweight.
