In some cases, yes. However, RLR seems to have a habit of regurgitating the 
same old plans, photos and articles from the original Scale Models articles 
in the '70s. There may be some "tweaking" to the plans here and there but I 
know of a couple of instances (in the Dr.1 special for instance) where the 
plans were tweaked incorrectly, making them less accurate in some respects 
than the originals.
