Was there ever plans produced for the Shoestring air racer?  How could I find them? 

 

Thanks,

Joe

Joe

I have a set of plans and have been building a Shoestring off and on (mostly off) for about 30 years. Actually I've been building 2. Just as easy to build a second one while your set up to build the first. If you have any questions, let me know. I think it's one of the most beautiful aircraft ever designed. Someday I'll finish them.

Cheers

Gerry

Gerry and Shawn,


Thank you for responding regarding the Shoestring.  I'm also building two at once (1/10 scratch build rc) and agree it is one of the most beautiful and classic aircraft ever.  Would love to see some pictures of your progress.  Is it a tough build?

Shawn would you ever consider parting with your plans?


Thanks again,


Joe

I thought I would bring this thread out of the archives to maybe shed some light on your search for Shoestring plans.  

Started my search April 2010 and have come to a dead end.  Maybe we can motivate someone to go to the attic and dust off some plans.

Joseph, I have no doubt that some older homebuilder out there is sitting on a set of the drawings, probably more than one. You know how the story goes, a fellow all excited and full of dreams and lofty intentions back in the 70's orders the plans for the shoestring, gets them, spends a year of spare time in study and perhaps even starts construction, then, out of nowhere Life hits him hard with some of her wild antics, the project grinds to a halt. The dream is put on hold, Someday, Someday. Suddenly someday has become 40 years later and the old fire in his belly has nearly gone out  But you know , I think most of those fellows would love to see a beautiful box stock Shoestring completed from their sacrifice of selling us their drawings.  I am counting on one of these fellow dreamer, homebuilders to come through for such a good cause.    Marc Moon
