The designer himself joined the forum a little while back, but hasnt posted. You can find him on the memberlist under Rogerdartington. Might be worth sending him a message?

The plans and assembly instructions are, as far as I know, still available from Robin.

You wont find him from Marcros' description as that is not his name.

Buzzworker is more like. Sending an e-mail rather than a PM is likely more productive.

Regards, RAB

Hi Macros,
Did you manage to get plans for the Dartington Hive. I am interested in building one and like you, cant find a decent set of plans.

All the best

Have you tried Robin Dartington by sending a message by e-mail? He has not been active on the forum for over a year, so unlikely to see a PM. I have the plans but have no intention of plagiarising his work.
