I have a 1940 Berkeley Buccaneer "36" print wood free flight kit which I intend to build as an R/C assist using copies of original print wood and the 24"x 36" plan sheet and preserve the original kit as is. The problem is that the 80 year old folded plan sheet (which I have carefully steam ironed flat and rolled) is to fragile to risk going through the pinch rollers at the large format copy shop. I was thinking about spray gluing (3M or Elmers) a backing sheet to the plans but have been told that it would most likely crinkle them from rubbery adhesive shrinkage. The other idea I have is to laminate the backside plan sheet to silkspan using nitrate dope.

So are there any paper preservation specialists out there with the right advice?

Restoration is time consuming work. It is better to download pdf file and print.

This interests me.. as I have a Comet #3504 FF 34" Lockheed P38 Lightning print-wood kit that I believe I got from AHC.. back in the early 1990's.

A simple process not for restorate but making a copy of the plan can be made:

1- Lay a large sheet of paper.
2- Apply two or three glue stick dabs on back of plan parts. Don't cover plan part completely with glue to prevent wrinkles.
3- Place plan part on paper and flatten it.
4- When all parts placed and flattened on paper, then place a thin clear non adhesive back acetate sheet on plan. This will prevent the lightly glued plan parts from rollers. Don't tape or glue the acetate sheet.
