A few years ago, someone had a website with CAD drawings of many models. I
"think" Ray Haddad may have had something to do with it. My memory is gone.
Is this website still around?
A fellow Kaos enthusiast is looking for rib templates for a Killer Kaos. Can
anyone help? TIA

and "Ed Cregger" instead replied:
I probably posted a link to it, Ed, but I didn't have anything to
dow with the site.
Try these two sites.
In the forum referenced below, a fellow says he has a rolled set of
Killer Kaos plans and posted a partial image of one rib. That was in
2005. Perhaps he still has them and can scan the rib sections for
you. It can't hurt to ask.
Here's the grandaddy of all modeling link sites. Most of them are
actually working links. It must take the owner a heap of time to
keep them updated.
As a last resort, you could shell out $40.00 for WinFoil by Malcolm
Hardy and create your own replacement set. The program name is
misleading as it now is a full model design package including
fuselage, horizontal stab and vertical stab. It automates a lot of
the process of making plans. It's an absolute dream package.
Read the features list. If you scratch build, you won't regret
Using WinFoil, all you need to know are the basic dimensions of the
wing and the type of airfoil. The software will do the rest. To
finish off the ribs, all you need to do is add the internal cuts for
spars, etc. You can download a "non saving/non printing" demo free
to get an idea of how it works and when you order, you get just the
files you need to make it completely functional.
That was Guy Fuller's site, "StarCad"... Guy had a fantastic plans resource
for the modeler...
Unfortunately, a select few began to plagarize Guy's site and attempt to
sell his plans on eBAY... Guy killed the site...
One heckuva loss... Guy's a nice fellow and did not deserve the treatment
he was given...

You might contact one of these guys as the Killer Kaos is listed as an
approved model for competition.
That is the one I was thinking of. Thanks.
Sorry to learn that it is gone, though. Yep, Starcad was it. Now that you
have reminded me of it, there is a chance that I have all of his drawings on
an old hard drive lying about somewhere. Now to check for that.
