Default Sr Falcon plans?

Anyone have a set of plans from an old CG Senior Falcon kit (not the new ARF version) that they wouldn't mind selling or copying?

TIA

Why do people think plans should be free? It costs money to buy paper and ink and someone has to go do it, then package it and ship it. Bought any plans from MAN lately, or commercial plans? $20 is pretty typical. Have you priced out printing large format plans at a local shop, either? It isn't cheap to say the least. Goldberg is in business to make a profit, not be a charity. I don't like the fact that they aren't $10 anymore, but that is the way the world is...

I but alot of plans-the last set I inquired about this week were from lonestar balsa-scat cat 500 $5.00 + $2 shipping. You can buy some real nice plans for $27 and last time I checked Lone star was in business to make money but more importantly to provide modelers with a great value too.
And I still say $27 for some 1/2 A plans is a rip-off

Check the AMA Plans Service, look for Falcon Senior. The plans are sent rolled via UPS stateside. They may be a little higher than Goldberg, but they often have plans that can't be found anywhere else.

The pattern sheet for parts not illustrated on the plan is about the same size as the plan. That simple , lovely little model, like the Jr Skylark has a lot of parts. John Pond sold the plans for $6.00. No pattern sheet.

FYI: For any hobby newbies. The AMA absorbed all of John Ponds plans and having resolved the copywrite issues the Plans are all available again on the AMA website. Thank goodness they did. Apathy had lead to John Pond's Plan Service being nearly lost forever.

Great little models!!

What happened to John Pond's company and why was everything almost lost forever?

He died.

Thank you AMA for having the foresight to acquire his fantastic range of plans.

I purchased the Sr. Falcon plans from AMA last year. They are adequate to build from, but some areas are very faint and hard to read. The person I spoke with warned me about this fact before taking my order. I had to re-draw the bottom section of the fuselage top view as it is missing from the AMA copy. It's no problem, really, but I just thought I'd let you know about it.
