Still ambivalent about it being so far away! Glad it was, kept me from buying it. Sad that it was so far away, I didn't buy it! However if an interesting project closer to home that close to being returned to service will get my attention for sure.

Only half way as far away. Maybe one will surface on the right coast.

glad you purchased her. Now for engine look into William Wynne's Corvair engine.
As for the biplane conversion I would wait and fly her for a while.
You could build her new Biplane wings later but you probably will not
due to the fact the performance will be down. But what the heck Biplanes are in our hearts. With a change in tail feathers and turtle deck and wing tips you make her look like a Bucker BU133
