Hi Willie,
I did send you a PM last week but still no reply :(
Beste Flyguys
Jammer ek het nog nie geantwoord nie maar sien nou al die inligting wat jy verlang is op bladsy 1. Ek weet van geen ongeluk skade nie en sien ook niks in die logboeke nie.

And the polo you use to work/means to earn money, and toys not. Hangar space/buildings rent out for 3 times the price of hangar-age for the same reason.

Interessant van af Wiki: "Operational history

One T-18, N455DT, was built by Donald Taylor of California and flown around the world from Oshkosh, Wisconsin in 1976. This was the first successful circumnavigation of the world by a home built aircraft. Taylor subsequently flew N455DT to the geographical North Pole, using a Sperry hybrid inertial navigation system.

Clive Canning flew another T-18 from Australia to England earlier the same year."

The problem is in the lower leg length. The dash comes too far down. Maybe if you cut 50mm off. Jan Kemp made some mods to his.
