Remarks

1st Project:
This project was a typical 90% done - 90% to go project. The original builder is Howard Warner. The fuselage was completed. But there were a number of parts that I am now replacing or changing. The electrical system needed some additional attention. The composite wings were not built (Thank God!). There were five panels glued together. I took them apart to corrosion protect the wing spar and to modify the fuel cells. I had to take the control system apart because the yokes didn\'t clear my knees. When I received the project it had a Ford V6 hanging from the firewall. This engine is now with Steve Craigle. We will find a replacement engine for me when I need one.

2nd Project:
This is Colin Power\'s plane: N-239CP. It was built by Colin with excellent workmanship. Colin flew 239CP for over 1000 hours and then sold it. It was wrecked shortly after this in Pacific City, OR. You can read about N-239CP on 1000aircraftphotos.com. Interestingly, the aviation enthusiast and web site creator of 1000AircraftPhotos.com, Ron, saw N-239CP during an airshow and took a picture of it for his collection. I hope that N-239CP will be as attractive as it has been when I\'m finished rebuilding it. The plan for N-239CP is to convert it to a tail dragger and extend the fuselage by 18\".
