Here they are, a vast and impressive collection of Spad plans devised and built by the originators of the Spad concept, and a few others chosen for your enjoyment. Before embarking on building your first Spad, please visit all other areas of our web site, and do as much research into the subject as you can stand before diving into the building process.
