Default Bay Ridge Mike

Does anyone have an old kit of the Bay Ridge Mike (Bay Ridge Models) from back in the late 30's or a set of plans for this plane?
Or is there someone who makes retro kits of this model?
Thanks,
Frank Schwartz

Bay ridge models was in Brooklyn N.Y on 2nd avenue. I used to go there in the 80's when it was Eastern Model Supply. Pete and Angelo always took excellent care of me when I bought wood. I haven't been there in years and as they were well along in years i'm sure that sadly the business no longer exists. Point is that they used to wrap some of my models in the old plans and sadly I never saved them. Oh, and they supplied wood to almost all of the Eastern Model Manufacturers in the golden era from the 30's to ?
They still had the machinery to produce Scientific and Enterprise wings.

Thanks a lot. Klarich sure does have the short kit.....just what I needed. I built one back in '36 and I warped the wing badly....so I built a Comet Zipper which flew.....so maybe I need to do the Mike again...and this time get it right !!
Thank you again
Frank
