Default Plans wanted

Hi, can anyone help me I'm looking for plans from old model boats magazines from the 50's, 60s and 70s for racing boats multi racers, flatties preferably glow ic powered.
I'd appreciate any help and advice. Here in the UK these are almost non existant. I would be happy to buy copies of plans if anyone has any for sale.

Just want a clarification, you said you would prefer a "flattie". Is that like a "crackerbox or a shallow "vee" hull? Check this page out, maybe something would work to make templates from to build several:

If you can take the plan out of the magazine, it can be enlarged by anyplace with large sized scanners and printers, such as a blue printing shop. They can normally also scan the plans into a digital format so you can print the framing out on a standard printer
