Check out the 1/4 scale L-19 build thread it has a lot of enhancements to make it closer to scale. I have the 1/5 scale plans from Roy although am building a 1/5 scale Murataka kit. One thing I noticed about the 1/5 scale Vallencourt plans is that the elevator outline is wrong comparison with a good 3 view and a actual airplane shows a deviation in the inboard ends of the elevators.
Good luck with your build.

Another resource is the IBDA (International Bird Dog Association) www.ibdaweb.com There is also a book by Minard Thompson "The Loveable One Niner" which is a good resource and can be purchased on the IBDA web site. You might find someone who has a full scale L-19 close to you through them.
