This is a link to Scale Model Plans. If you don't mind scratch building but don't want to draw them out in AutoCad  Tom has done the drawing for you. Scale Model Plans  They are drawn and laid out well. They have lots of Canadian content. You get PDF's of the drawings so you just have to cut them out, glue them down and cut out your pieces. Similar to the process I describe in my post on building scratch models. Tom also has lots of good tutorials also on his site.
