Frequently Asked Questions

Are all AMA plans for sale?

Do you have a catalog?
For the Pond plans we use the “Old Time Plans Service” catalog that was dated 1999-2000 but the prices in the catalog are incorrect. A copy can be viewed or downloaded from the AMA Web site at no charge. A Model Aviation plans list can also be downloaded from the AMA Web site or a printed copy can be purchased from the AMA Plans Service for $2.
