I purchased a set of plans from him when I saw the article in the Sport Aviation magazine. I've kept them all these years. It's a shame that they are not available anymore. Now that I have the time and space to get this dream off of the bookshelf, I find out the wings are not available. Any help out there on who may have a set of plans/drawings for them?

Hello Tom, if you are interested I can give you Lazer Tronics address. They are the company that does the lazer cutting of the 82% Curtiss wing ribs. Mine is done by them and I'm waiting for the delivery of it. Email me so that we can chat.

I am unfamiliar with the Gary Sauser P-6E plans. I understand he is deceased. Are or were the plans for a full size P6-E or a reduced scale. Thank you.
