One of the Hummel Bird plans is the version sold now (or was in the early 2000's) and the other is the WIndwagon conversion I believe. I haven't got them out for a while though. I can go through them this weekend if you are interested. The conversion I will keep.

The Knight Twister is my favorite Bipe. The Coed is very similar to the single seat versions. What specifically are you looking for? An attachment?

Just a picture added to a post.

If the drawings are full size, they have some value. The seqair site has everything else available for free download.
They are the full size drawings, not reduced or down loaded copies and three-ring binders full of info included.

Good morning all. First post. I am looking for plans for the Beechcraft D17S or Griffin Lionheart. Any clue where to look for these?

You are not going to find them in the wild. Lionheart was a prefab kit. Just instructions that say glue tab A to slot B. If you got a buddy at Beech, he might make you copies, but without that and maybe a trusted restoration company getting some help from Beech, you are not getting them. Also probably thousands of drawings. You may find some technical three views with tidbits, but that’s about it.

Staggerwing drawings are out there, but I don't know if a complete set is, for sure. Drawing count I know of, is in excess of 4000 sheets. It's not for the inexperienced builder. One also needs exceptional skills when it comes to drafting and lofting. Many of the parts are drawn full scale on the original prints and have scale sets on them, with no dimensions on the part itself, requiring one to loft a new set of drawings as templates to build the part. Which in easy terms, means printing the drawing to an exact scale, then measurement off the drawing, and correcting the dimension from the scale and then generating the point on the new drawing. With some brushing up on my board skills, I could probably do about 4 drawings a week, working nearly full time at it, and I've got probably over 12,000 hours at the drafting board and on a tube doing CAD, over the years.

Additionally, there are some slightly exotic materials called out, that are going to be hard to source in small quantities....such as 18-8 Steel, Columbium stabilized. Fabrication will also necessitate having a milling machine and a lathe...lots of stuff I looked at had the note: Make From: and then listed a stock material callout, and machining notes and heat treat info.

"Colonel Raymond", you're not fooling anyone! We see right through that clever disguise... we should have recognized your foul stench Governor Tarkin ! I suppose you thought we'd believe you're Doctor Frankenstein as well... :)

(some of you young 'uns will have no idea what I'm talking about... never mind, it's OK)

To be honest, I was not expecting an easy fix. I have been thinking about trying to build this with modern day material (aluminum and titanium) instead of wood and steel tubing. I was also thinking about reducing the engine size down to 180hp. Cover the plane in carbon fiber instead of cloth.

Maybe one of you engineers can figure out if a Kit Fox can be modified into something like this.

Anyone have a set of plans for the Robertson B1-RD, B2-RD? I have heard there is information to convert the B1 into a two place. If anyone has anything, paper or digital, please let me know. I purchased a set online from a suspect source and got incomplete plans with lousy scans. Looking for something I can use as a starting point for a modern Demoiselle ala Skonkwerks. Any suggestions for other similar and available UL plans is appreciated.

With the rumored new regulations the Hiperbipe doesn't meet my needs. Guess I need to wait until Oshkosh next year to find out the exact regulations for a LSA that I can actually fly and fit into.

My plans inventory is most replicas:
Nieuport 11, 12, 17 (Lee)
Fokker DVII (aerodrome, Replicraft)
Fokker Dr1 (Sands, Replicraft)
Sopwith triplane (Replicraft)
Sopwith pup (Replicraft)
Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter (Replicraft)
Thomas Morse S-4C (Replicraft)
SE-5A (Replicraft)
Hawker Hurricane (Sindlinger)
ME-109 (Jurca MJ-9) (digital and paper) (old and new version)
Of these I have currently started working on 6 of these. The Hurricane and Nieuport 11 I’m doing in pairs. Just seemed easier than making ones.
