C150 Taildragger. (Texas Taildragger)

I am lazy to do the research, but would this be ZU, or ZS in sunny South Africa?

Any opinions?

ZS-MGN is a 152 taildragger. Used it a lot at FAVG.

Was affectionately named "my god neville" for the number of times students tried to put me into the bush.

Was a different colour then.

Lovely little machine. Really good for teaching tailwheel.

Are these kits to convert a Cessna Land-O-Matic to a taildragger easily available? Anybody with leads to which company to order a kit from?
I know there's a lot of money in aviation because I put it there.
