F3A plans

I’m collecting plans for F3A models, doing my bit to preserve the classic
designs. I buy plans and trade with other modellers. Perhaps you have a plan I want? (Sorry, I don’t sell plans)

* = Kit plan means it’s originally a kit. Plans meant for scratchbuilding are easier to build since kit planes have more difficult parts to make and canopies and cowlings are seldom available.

Note that I can’t copy plans that are commonly available from online stores for obvious reasons (and you can just buy an original yourself). Many of the popular plans many people ask me about such as the Curare, Magic, Supra 2500, Blue Angel and Miniare can be bought online from FMT Magazine, se Verlag für Technik und handwerk at www.vth.de
