For Robert and Bob - search on outerzone.co.uk as there's a plan there for the Piper

Are there any plans, 3-views, etc that a model builder can use to build a model, static or flying, of this aircraft - Piper PA-7 Sky Coupe? See question from "Robert" on 30-11-2011.
When I was a kid, back in the 50s, I had a comic book on aviation that featured this plane with an open cockpit. The cover was missing along with several pages so I couldn't tell what the title was, but it had been published in the late 40s. I've been searching for this book for decades and this is the first clue that I've gotten.

Does the prototype still exist? Museum exhibit?
I'd also like to have a 3-view or drawings of this plane.
