Default Gentle Lady Plans??

Hi, I got a kit from an elderly woman on my street of a Gentle Lady. The only problem is that it doesnt have plans with it!
Does anyone have plans to the GENTLE LADY sailplane that they would like to give to me? I would be glad to pay shipping in order to get them! Please help a teenager get started in the hobby, Thank you much.

P.S. I could give them back afer I was done, if you would like.

Hey Mr Frog Dude, Look at the ribs and see if a single spar goes through a hole in the rib (old kit) or if it is a later kit that uses two spars - one on top and one on bottom.

It's got two holes in the spars. the following pic is what the spar looks like very roughly! /__0__o__\
If this is not a good description then I will try to post a pic. Both holes are in the middle of the spar and the first is a bigger hole.?!

Thank you,
Mark

I have the plans for the Kit # SP-1 Goldberg Gentle Lady--if you still need them .E mail me a address if you want these --They are really old,but useable.Might want to get them copied,then you could cut up the copy to build the wing--just a suggestion.Good Luck--Joann

That rib is from the old kit - the single spar through the center of the rib makes for a rather weak wing. The new kits have two spars at that same place, one on top of the wing and one on the bottom of the wing and shear webs between them. A much stronger wing. Let me know if you still need plans.

Thanks, but I dont need plans any more...I have had a few replies already! Thanks for volonteering your plans though. There are a lot of people willing to help a teen get started in the hobby, that's for sure!!! I was guessing it was an old kit because the person I got it from has been doing it since he was a kid! Sadly he passed away about three months ago.
