Thanx. Just one thing to remember. If you want to build it as a stock standard plans-built cri-cri, the caa will require a letter from the manufacturer of the kit or plans stating that the unique plan # was not issued to anyone else.

T

Who can I contact for a set of the plans.Me and 1 of my friend wants to start it as a project.

Contact me on 082 568 74 79
