After having completed "Fishwrap," my steel-string parlor guitar, I'm thinking now of making a classical guitar in a similar size. Are there plans out there for this sort of thing?

I can use the Scott Antes plans up to a point, of course, and just use fan bracing instead of X-bracing, but I'm not sure how much I'd want to rely on my ability to scale down full-sized plans.

Antes plans are some of the worst out there but you certainly can use them for the base. Remember that your top will be thinner . You can make it work just use better top brace plans than antes.
hauser or ramirez may be used to plot top bracing

The 1888 Torres is about parlor size. lMII sells a measured drawing, I believe.
