Daniel,We ordered the plans derictly from the designer, Bob Barrows. You send a check in the mail, and a little while later a big envelope with plans shows up in the mail. We have not started working on the fuselage yet. We will be building it from scratch, but it can also be bought from AviPro (www.bearhawkaircraft.com). It is made from 4130 steel tubing welded, then covered in fabric. Both Brady and I are looking forward to the day when we start working on steel instead of Aluminum!
