Has anyone converted these plans to a laser cutting program?

BMJR sells a laser cut kit of the Dakota. The only thing not laser cut was the leading edge. Reason being is that Joe Wagner the designer actually cut them. Joe recently passed away sadly. https://www.bmjrmodels.com/free-flight

Back in the early 2000's, Joe Wagner had an interesting newsletter blog. Any could send comments, photos, builds, etc., basically small RC, other FF and CL stuff. Then at the end of the month he produced a PDF newsletter, and E-mail it to everyone. His website had back articles. He was still proud of his designs and rightly so, would sell plans to anyone who asked. You couldn't get more genuine than that for accuracy.

It had a good following, then it petered out after a couple years, don't remember the specific reasons, think some of the great contributors, seniors in the dusk of their life passed on or had other serious health issues.

We may have social media, but overall, all the privately owned forums and websites including bulletin boards were fun with very few trolls and many genuine down to earth people. Those were fun times. Unfortunately much of that is gone.

I guess I should have said more in my original post. I was asking about laser cut files because I want to scale it up a little for R/C flying.

Overall, that might be a tough do if a business, because I'd think that is a guarded work. Don't know any individuals with such files.

Most would simply take PDF to a printer and have scaled up, or PC software to tile print, paste together, manually trace & cut parts.

You may want to post on RC Groups, Hip Pocket Aeronautics and RC Universe, might be someone out there who has what you are looking for.
