Guillows had a nickle scale series in the late 40's/early 50's, VERY simple construction, and the kit numbers all started with the number 47F   They were lightplanes, Cessna, Piper, etc I have never seen them online.  They were 12 inch span.
I have the Cessna 140 plan, kit 47F-5, that I enlarged and flew indoor years ago.  The plans came with quite elaborate instructions and had the kind of character that gets you building right away.  Anybody seen these anywhere?

I am building one of the ones from that series at the moment I think - The Monocoupe but it has a bigger span than 12”.  It should fly well...
