Hi Nico, I will post some photos.

If I had enough hours to do a taildragger conversion, this plane would be mine at this price.

Hi Zihbn.

The log books show that it was inspected on 2/11/96 by approved person # 2 and permission was given to proceed with the covering of the structures
and that the first test flight was conducted on 1/6/99 .
I believe it was purchase in 1993 and the build started once delivery was made from the States.

Hi Johan.

I have this on record which I got years ago:

Cabin Width- 39 in. (not including bubble doors)
Across Ears (upper carry thru tube)- 33.5 in.
Across Seat Truss- 35 in.
Across Bottom of Panel / Knees- 33 in.
Seat Truss to Firewall- 25 in.
Toe Room (Cross Tube to Floor at Firewall)- 11 in.
Across Panel- 29 in.

She is quite comfortable two up with normal sized guys and has a great view on final approach.
