I already have those.  Leaves much to be desired.  The fuselage side view is in different scales for one.  another is they are very hard to read.

  Crist;
  That name kind of rings a bell. If it was published and and you have an idea in which magazine and time frame, I may have the magazine plans. I have a rather large collection of M.A.N. plans and their monthly model plans were sold in groups in the early years. If it was a American Aircraft Modeler or Air Trails plan I have a  lot of those also.
  Type at you later,

The TARFU was never published in the main stream modeling press.  It is a more modern design.  There might be some more three views in the Speed Times newsletter.

Crist,

     Are you looking for plans for the Tarfu fast jet or sport jet?  Lenny Waltemath gave me a print of his sketches for the Fast Jet Tarfu and I also bought his un-flown Tarfu Sport Jet.  I have been flying this model for about 20 years.  I made a full sized scale top view drawing of the model to help with packing it to ship to Portugal in 2006.  I'm not sure if I have a side view of the fuselage.  However, I am bringing the model to the Nats.  I will bring copies of whatever I have with me.  I am very busy right now building a 1/2A Profile Proto right now and this time next week I will be on my way to Muncie.  I assume that you will be there too.  I will be flying the 1/2A PP, Sport Jet, Classic and OT Stunt.
     I will try to make up a sketch of the fuselage side view if I can find the time.  The Tarfu SJ is a real treat to fly.  One of my favorite speed ships.  It is on it's last legs now and needs a replacement and put out to pasture.
     I look forward to seeing you at the Nats.  I will send you a PM so you can contact me by phone.
