Question Giant Aeromaster

I have just recently acquired what I believe to be a Lou Andrews Giant Aeromaster. It was picked up a lawn sale and 70% built. It came with no plans and a good many missing parts. If someone can confirm the kit and advise me where I might find some plans, cowl, canopy, wheel pants, cabanes & landing gear, I plan to finish the plane and hope to get back into flying again.

Thanks, Bill

Flightglass laminates probably has most of what you need.you can get the landing gear from TNT landing gear

Flightglas has apparently gone out of business. Try fiberglass specialties.

It's very similar to a Aeromaster, but as for as I remember, there was no Giant Aeromaster ever kitted. It is probably someone's attempt to build a Giant Aeromaster. The original Aeromaster didn't have a builtup stab. The fuselage sides went all the way to the spinner, and it didn't have ailerons on the upper wing and didn't have a canopy..

Yes there was a Giant Airomaster, I bought and built one. A great flying plane. I have the plans somewhere but am not able to search for them right now. I put a large Quadra (72cc if I remember correctly) on it and it was a joy to fly.

Thank you for getting back with me. I have been out of the sport for 20+ years and needed to fill my spare time. I will check the sources.
Thank you
Bill

The Spacewalker may be one of the AMR versions., at around 1/2 scale.

Toymaker, do you have plans? I have the Aeromaster nearly built with no cabanes or struts. I would like to complete it. I have a DLE 55 for power. Any help would be great.
Thanks, Jeff
