Default Starduster Too original drawings

I found a set of dated 9-25-65 (on some drawings) 6-11-66 on there pages. All are 1965-1966. I'm missing some pages. I have a current set (dates 1998 anyway) but was wanting a complete set of "original" drawings for the Starduster Too. Just for reference basically. Can anyone tell me if the 1965-1966 drawings are the first ones offered? Does anyone know how many pages should be included in the first set?
I have pages 2,3,9,10,12,13,14,15,16,19

I'm missing all not listed above. My current (1998 dated set) is 20 pages with a couple extra pages for center section tank and something else I can't recall. Anyone have a complete 1965-1966 set? Is this the "original" set offered?

Mine say 6-30-66 in the title block with a letter and insert of my plane, N1300S, on the left dated Oct and Dec 1969. So I guess these are not original.

First flight in the logbook is 8-3-67.

The truss in my plane's fuselage did not match my plans. I changed it to match the current plans as I wanted a useful baggage compartment behind the seat.

Kris I think I have most of the sheets you are missing, but some of the sheets were up dated in the late 60s, and others where no changes were made still have the 1965- 1966 dates.

Not all of the drawings were finished back then, Frank Boyce was the guy that did them and he also had a real job and as they were finished were added to the drawings, I believe by 1967 they were complete, but several were revised in 1969. Also after Jim Osborne bought Starduster from Lou Stolp, he took the plans for the engine mount off the market so that builders would have to buy them from him, and the fuel tank drawings for both the main and center section were never up dated. Although when Les Homan owned the Co he was trying to make the plans whole and current. I do have a set from A/C Spruce dated 6-1-98 but have never opened them, so am not sure what is or is not there and whether they are whole and current?

As for the airplanes N95450 was the first Starduster Too and was built during 1965- 1966 and much of the drawings were taken off of the actual airplane. After it was lost the Second prototype Starduster Too N1300S was started shortly thereafter , and as Don said the first flight took place in Aug of 67 Dave
