MA Mar 86 / Piper PA-8 Skycycle Question

Does anyone know anything about the Vintage RC Plans Piper PA-8 Skycycle?
Wing span is 60"
Wing area?
AUW (with what engine?)?

I have a reference from MA March 1986 but I don't have the article (IF it is an article!).
Does anyone know if the MA Mar 86 issue has an article on this plane? Does MA have articles from back then?

Fred Novack of Vintage RC Plans donated a free set of plans from his catalog for our event. I picked the Skycycle because it kinda tickles my fancy. The free plans arrived today and after scoping them out, I discovered I didn't have enough info to MotoCalc this bird. Need to figure what drive system to use. It sure has a cavernous fuse!

Thanks to Fred Novack for supporting our charity event.
