I have three plane building project references (magazines) for you.

Variable-pitch Jack Plane . Popular Woodworking April 2011 Issue #189

Infill Smoothing Plane ShopNotes Volume 21 Issue 121 (I particularly like this one.)

Classic Finger Plane Woodworkers Journal October 2010

These projects are documented well and provide sources for all the hardware and tooling steel needed.
I’m probably going to build one of these sometime.

You should be able to get these magazines from a public library.

Additionally , I would shop around for the hardware and tooling steel supplies you will need . As these items will be the bulk of your cost , you may as well compare pricing. Here is a popular source that Shop Notes magazine
supplies with many of their projects.

I am not endorsing them as I have not ordered from them yet. But they carry a huge inventory.

Good luck.
