"MSP PLANS presents a collection of model aircraft designs from the vintage and classic eras, selected for their unique or unusual origins. They have been produced from original sources, photographs or sketches, recreating one or two models not previously published as plans. This has been done purely for the pleasure and satisfaction of doing so, and always to a high standard of presentation." You are invited to purchase copies of these plans for your own pleasure. Each plan is accompanied by historical notes relating to the origins of the plan material. This link will take you via the Free Flight Supplies plans listing to the MSP site.
