There are several repositories for plans scattered
around the internet. Here is another. The thing that we hope makes

be of little value unless those of you who have a model with plans
available are willing to submit them. If you have a model and plans
please send them to the . They will be reviewed and added if deemed useful

Dallas Sport Goodyear (rules available under the "Rules" link). Here are
plans for one Sport GY, the "Knotty Girl"
