Piper L-21 Homebuilt project
I found this interesting. Evidently all the copyrights on the Piper Super Cub expired and you can download the blueprints for the military version.
I am reminded of a ca. mid-1950s series in Mechanix Illustrated magazine for a home-built.
I even attended the local, to me, Lincoln Jr HS, now Lincoln Middle School, summer classes in metalworking, and the Santa Monica CC classes in aircraft welding.
It was, perhaps, apropos that Douglas Aircraft Co was, then, HQed at Santa Monica Field. It later moved to Long Beach, for the DC-8 program, after the very successful DC-6 and the not-so-successful DC-7 Seven-Seas programs.
The welding classes, there, featured the same Victor J-27 torches which were, then, so very much in evidence at Douglas.
I would, gladly, pay for a single PDF which includes ALL of the Super Cub prints and documents.
Better, yet, on a CD-ROM.
I flew in a home built kit plane today, a Vans RV-6. Felt like a fighter jet. The same guys have started building another plane called a Skyote(sp). I think it is a scratch built.
All of the aluminum alloy designations in the prints are obsolete. I know that 24S-T is now 2024-T3 but what is 35-1/2H? Where can I find a conversion table between the old designations and the modern aluminum alloy designations?
contact the EAA homebuilt association.

It is the J-3- PA-11 -PA18 Super Cub replica
it uses the lycoming engine (or continental) and I believe they have a supplement for the military version.
You can buy just plans.
