Default Vintage scale sailplanes,30's,40's????

Hey now, new to the site, looking for old sailplanes, 30's,40', scale kit or what ever. Not finding much out there. I like to build stuff and spend time re working damaged or swap meet crash stuff to look at least sort of old and that is fun, but there must be someone else that likes old suff....right??I know of Fred China and his huge 1/4 scale planes which are super nice, does any one do 2 meter-ish stuff like that? How about the primary trainer type, I would love to build one, but all I have found is an 18" Canadian Trainer free flight kit from Easy Built Models. I plane to blow up the plans and see if I can build it to 40,50" wing span.Any help would be great, thank yo YoyO.Heres a picture of the current build, it was a tail dragger type elecric 3 channel 40" scratch built swap meet find.Thanks again for any imfo.YoyO

sleepy,

Traplet Publications from England has a bunch of '30s sailplane plans available. You'll have to hunt around to find the right size plans for your needs.

There are free plans for several 30s-50s planes on Vintage Sailplaner. All in PDF format that you can take to Kinkos' or Office Depot to have printed out at just about any size you want.

Http://www.vintagesailplaner.com

Go to the plans page and download away. Jim is also going to be posting more plans as they are ready.
