Default Giant Scale Sweet-and-Low stick

I'm looking for a plan sheets 2 and 3 from the Midwest Giant Scale Sweet-and-Low stick from the Mid 90s or thereabouts. Even better, I'd like to get a hold of an intact kit for this airplane. Anyone have any leads at all on this kit? I had one that was obliterated in a mid-air collision. Really would like to have another.

Thanks for any help, here.

If your search is unsuccessful, you have the option of an AMR kit. I hear the quality is exceptional.

Best of luck!

Thanks for all the responses. I'm checking out the links, now. I am impressed with the AMR quality and designs. I wish they had a traditional swt and lo stick design however, with solid ply/balsa fuse and the rounded tail. Looks like the ebay site may hold the key for me. Thanks again, guys.

Maybe take a look at Bridi Designs, you could build the Big Bee with a rounded tial or whatever. lower cost than the AMR also.

http://www.bridiairplanes.com/hangar/bigbee.html

Of coursse, the Low Stick was just a shoulder wing stick with the fuse turned over. No reason you could not do that to any stick you choose, along with modifying the wing tips, wing trailing edge. stab and fin outlines, whatever. Just keep the areas about the same and the vertical and horizontal projrections about the same.

Sincerely, Richard

I have the orignal Phil Kraft Ugly Stik plans if you want me to have them copied for you.

I probably have those plans. Are you going to the Joe Nall?
