Default Tiger Tail plans

I built my first and only Tiger Tail from M.A.N. plans back in 1985,I still have it however I want to build a new one. I have two questions(1) where can I get plans
(2) where can i get foam cores for the wing panels and horizontal stab??

I had all the above and sold it years back on R.C.U. and want to build another ASAP

Thanks

I just checked the Eureka web sit and sent them a PM asking what all is included with the "short kit" priced at $175.00. If any classic pattern flyer can provided any information it would be appreciated.

Eureka Aircraft Company sells wing and stab cores for the Tiger Tail. They also sell a 'short' kit (no sheet wood).

A year or two or three ago Ron Chidgey himself was at the Perry GA swap meet selling kits of the Tiger Tail.

Rich,

which version of the TT do you want to build? I have plans for both the original (TT1 if you will) and Ron's latest CAD designed TT4. I'm not too familiar with the 2nd and 3rd version but kits in both wood and glass existed for both I believe.

PS Ron used to have a website through which he sold some items including Tiger Tail related items. Unfortunately he shut it down not long ago.

I wished I could make the Perry meet. 75 miles away and every year I'm too busy.

I would like to get a copy of the TT1 plans and the later TT4 plans. I have an original set of TT4 plans. I would be interesting to see what the changes are.
TIA
Jeff
