                                            Plans for SPA-eligible Designs
This is a list of designs eligible for SPA that are available as magazine-size photocopies of the plans and, in most
cases, the article as well.
                       Many of them are not on the SPA approved list, but the necessary documentation is here.
I have put this together from my collection of old magazines, and was amazed at how many there were, even though I
don't have several that are listed by SPA.
                       The copies are a good way of checking out what designs look like. You can also enlarge the plans
so they are fully usable, by the usual photo-enlargement or scanning.
                       I can send copies by airmail at a price of US$5 for every two designs ordered . Please send cur-
rency (bills) only, because checks are too expensive to clear from New Zealand.

Note that the Blue Angel is available only as a full size plan. The price of this is US$20 including airmail.
I would also like to obtain copies of designs that I don't have, on a swap basis.
