Depending on your ability to print out PDFs, many of the plans that fit the size of planes we use/build are available for free from

www.outerzone.co.uk

Mary and Steve have a valuable resource with over 14,000 plans available as of this writing. These are FREE for personal use. I have contributed some scanned files of my old plans, plus pictures and scanned decals.

So for the Skyraider, they list 18 different Skyraider plans.

For the Beaver, they list 14 different plans.

I have an 11x17 printer which makes it easy to print some of the smaller plans.

Adobe Acrobat Reader has a built in POSTER option to make what are called 'Tiled' prints. In other words if you have an 8-1/2x11 printer it will print individual pages for taping together full size.

To find this feature File | Print | More Options | Current View
Then Paper size and handling Actual Size.
Select Poster. Make sure scale is 100%. Set your desired overlap. I select Cut Marks as it helps in lining up the pages. Make sure correct paper size is selected and print.

The keys are 100% size, current view, and Poster

If you want to print a template for say the horizontal tail, zoom the pdf so the part you want almost fills the screen. You select print current view. Then select size at 100% and preview. If the print loses something due to ratio of screen, zoom out a bit and retry. Then print poster. You can do that for bulkheads and rib templates etc.

The scary part of Mr. O'Sullivan's designs is the picture of him from some 55+ years ago. See the Hi Tee Mk 14 plans page and picture. The fuzzy faced chap looks like Mr. O'Sullivan circa 1964 or 1965. Also the Spinnifex 100 has a photo of the fine gentleman in the late 1980s. Looks like Lawrencetown Beach weather.
