This plan is pdf.

You can always see how to open files in the main tab under Details. The last line is a suggestion of software to open the file in the listing.
If you are looking for the dxf version of this plan i´m afraid there is none. No one has made it so far, it would have to be drawn by hand.

Can´t you use the sanding method? make the smaller and larger ribs in plywood, cut the inner in balsa, make a sandwich and sand until you have all the ribs in between flush. Repeat mirrored for the other half of the wing.

I would not put too much faith in the factual accuracy of this synopsis, as the author claims that the Hundley (sic) was found with the Housatonic after the war, with all of the crew dead within.
