Where do you find plans for scale?

I have done a beginner kit, and an intermediate kit, and am interested in starting to look at scratch building. Maybe a .60 size or larger Neiuport 17...

Look at Proctor:

It's not plans but for $209 for a kit you can't complain too much. Better to ease into scratch building (trust me!) I've heard that Proctor kits can be pretty advanced and detailed, though I'm not really all that familiar with their kits.

Very detailed but the kits are superb. They do sell plans separately.

Also check out rcscalebuilder, a lot of scale builders and even plans mfgrs on there...

Actually that kit is almost exactly what I have been looking for. Thanks!

I have it stuck in my head that scale = scratch.

Good advice above, but there's another route: plans plus the GRP bits and some parts cutting.

I'm building a Hornet Moth (B version) using plans and molded bits from Mike Smart in the UK.

I had the plans scanned and all the compound curved bits cut cut for me. Metal work etc. I'm doing myself, plus the simple parts cutting. My workshops and tools are limited.

Total cost is less than a comparable kit I think. And more flexible in that you can pick and choose which of the work you want to do yourself and what your workshop is up to.

I'm a big fan of the British modeler mags, especially for scale. Most have a plans section from which you can buy plans and the accompanying building/setup/flying articles.

For example:

Note that like Mike Smart, Traplet (and others) will sell you the GRP and other odd parts.

I was going to say I wouldn't got back to full kits now, but those Proctor Antics looked kinda fun...
