The Berkeley Mini Zilch is available as a kit from Sig.

https://sigmfg.com/products/sig-berkeley-mini-zilch

As such, plans are probably covered under some form of copyright.

New engines for these aircraft are available from PAL Model Products; and yes, this is a shameless plug for my Brother Bob's firm.

Thanks Greg,  Glad SIG is still in business.  I had contacted them a couple years ago regarding tissue and I got the impression  they were just hanging on   .Motors are not an issue like many others I have more motors than should be allowed.

Built a Super Zilch from hand me down Kit plans in 1960 An Easy scratch build.. even for a 10 yr old. Flew fine. 
 Bigger IS better in these imo.
Suggest something of similar size  .30/40 engine)  Plansfor those are on the free plan sites

Thanks Fred, From a practical point you right.  But lets call it nostalgia on my part.  I have not flown CL in 65 yrs.  Going through some boxes I came across the Berkley kit box  for mz with some parts a dried up tube of Comet cement etc but no plans.  Thought it would be fun to build a mz.. I flew mostly class c models for fun; but did fly in WAM for a couple of years in my teens.  Building is my interest even now.
