This is the only site I am aware of with any connectivity to Don Sauser's 82% P6e Hawk. The Web site was lost when Bryan Austin sold what he had and got out. I'm still working on mine, plans #28. Caddilac engine, 3 piece upper wing, larger stabilizer, gear leg mods. I have the wing rib patterns and some other information on other buildings and sources but am terrible at record keeping 540 295 0857. Texting is best.

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.
