I just got my plans a couple months ago, I haven't even thought about starting on it, what has changed in the plans?

No changes in plans I'm aware of. That is a Leonard question.    this is only a change in material list to correct an omission of a tubing size for a gear piece and increase in a couple tubing sizes as a recent builder came up short.  MANY others had enough but I'd rather you have a little left over than having to order more.

I recently purchased plans for the XL for electronic download. The print on the pages have to be expanded 400% just to read them.
I have no idea what the actual size should be for the ribs and spars. I contacted Leonard and sent a check for full size patterns but never heard back from him.
Anyone know if there is a problem?

Same here, same here!😒
Bought plans to be downloaded and never saw a list /inventory/bill of tubing to be bought!
Bit the bullet and started measuring each tube on drawings, scaled them up and ended with the following:
3/4"ODX0.0035": 65'5" - ordered 70'
5/8"ODx0.0035": 64'9" - ordered 70'
7/8"ODx0.0035": 1'10" - ordered 10'
Landing gear / struts and miscellaneous not included.
