On the pdf files of the sig skybolt does 100% equel full size of the original plans. Would like to know the wing span so I can get it printed out at the correct size. Am getting a cowl from Fiberglass Masters.

No longer have the Sig, so no way to confirm, but I believe the top wing was of 51" span.

Hi,
I have a Sig Bolt un built. I'd be willing to run off copies to anyone who would like one - or two. Just be looking at the cost to run off at Kinko's, plus the postage to ship.
Best way would be rolled. Can also include copies of the manual if needed. Not sure, but it's like 25 pgs. Full size templates / cross sectionals are limited though.- I.E. bottom fuse bulk heads. Ribs are shown, that's about it. Where I'd suggest the use of "See-Temp" pattern material.

-Ken

Well after studying the plans I realized that the stab & elevator are not shown on the plans. Hab, if you could trace out these and post or be able to get them to me I would really appreciate it. Let me know what you need to do that.

I noticed that too, and there's no formers with the exception of the fire wall.

Take all the time you need, I am in no hurry. As far as the formers that is no problem as they can be made as long as you have the side and top views.

Not sure if these will do you any good. They're drawn ( traced) full size on 8.5 x11. I'm no good at scanning and up loading pics.

Agreed, the formers can be easily made, just a bit easier with temps. Lol.

Hello Mike I am new to this web site so bear with me. I just acquired an old Bauer Modelle 72" (1830mm) Skybolt kit. The problem I have is that there are no plans (except for the small publisher sheet) and no instruction/assembly manual. Is there any way you can help me with getting this information? Also, is Skybolt Hanger and Clubhouse still active?

Hi Allan, Few years ago I also aquired a partially built (wing)1\4 scale kit. Now, I'm totally disorganized, . . . and also working quite a bit, . . . . but my building instructions seem intact and handy. Printer\scanner been broke for a while, but I'm going to attempt to get them emailed to you.

I've never dealt with a fiberglas fuselage before, and my 1st biplane build Smith Mini is currently in process, albiet very slowly. Attempts to find any info concerning the manufacturer, flight reports, or other kits by Bauer seemed to fall on deaf ears . . . . (only other kit I've seen by Bauer is a ME262 jet) so my kit has gotten stashed back, and since buried.

I'll try to locate the kit (liable to take a little while) and see if there is any more "paperwork" that I can alert you to. Sure seems like a quality kit and I love the open cockpit style Skybolt. Recommended 10cc engine sure seems small for this size plane.

Hello Mike and others out there:

Hear is a little update I found out about the Bauer Modelle company. I contacted the current Bauer Modelle company. They stated that they are not the company that built this 1830 mm kit. That Bauer Modelle company is no longer in business and that no information is available now.
The current Bauer Modelle had me contact www.bitmodell.de. This I did and found out that they have no information either on this kit. (They do have a nick looking kit but not the same.)
So, I am right back where I started! I need plans and the instruction/assembly manual. Will pay anyone for making copies of what they have or if you sent them to me I will copy and return your set.
(Mike: Look for what you have when you are able!)

I was hoping to actually build a Skybolt from the Sig plans after I got them but I recently had another opportunity come up that popped up. I've been going back and forth with a guy who's been trying to get me to build an Ultra Sport 1000 for him for a few years now, and I really really needed the balsa therapy so I'm building the Ultra Sport now. The Skybolt with have to move to the back burner for right now.

Sorry guys

Ken

Who knows, maybe well all finish up our current builds around the same time and do a group build. That would be way cool.
