I have been clearing out a elderly relatives loft who sadly passed away recently and found the above kit. It is in its original box and looks complete apart from the plans. There is a helpful hand written note in the box saying plans stored separately. Can anyone direct me to someone who may have a copy of the plans. Although I am not a model maker I would really like to at least have the plans to either complete the model or to pass the kit onto someone who would enjoy this kit.

Great find Steve! I always fancied a Mini-Skyman but never got round to getting one.

I had two Mini Skyman models back in the 80s. The first was built from the kit and fitted with a Cox Tee Dee 049, flown rudder/elevator.
The second was modified from the kit plan to have a wing with ailerons and less dihedral and the wing was cut from foam. Engine was an OS 10 FSR. Went very well for many years.
You'd be welcome to a copy of my plan but after so many years, the dyeline print faded and became illegible.
Luckily Robin has sourced a plan and I've actually bought a few plans from there before. The proprietor Derrick is very helpful.
