The fuselage is covered and painted white. It is sitting on its wheels and the engine is installed.
The instrument panel has not been started – I wanted to leave this until last because modern instrumentation is developing fast.
The wings are silver doped, awaiting painting.
The engine is a Rotax 582 water cooled. It has never been run.
It has the standard 18 US gal right wing tank +
Left wing 9 US gal tank + baggage locker
There is also a baggage locker behind the seats – plywood bottom and cloth sides.
Still to do are the instrument panel, final engine installation and painting the flying surfaces.
The price is negotiable. A completed one was advertised for £18,000 recently. Projects go for very much less.
