  7. Bob Cornwell was an exceptional craftsman who worked at Luskintyre in the early 90's. He built a beautiful HM14 replica that i bought off him in 2000. I lost contact with him and went visit him in Weston in the Hunter valley yesterday only to find the house had been sold and was in the process of being restored by the new owner. The new owner said that Bob had died several years previously and that there was still aircraft stuff in the shed so i went a had a look expecting to find a completed HM8 fuse ( conventional 1928 hi wing monoplane designed by Henri Mignet before the Flea craze) W
  8. After many years of struggling with a body that I've badly mistreated ( many incidents and accidents ) Its come time to say that's enough. I had 2 1931 Clancy Skybaby replicas ( which have now gone to HARS ) 1 partially built HM 293 ( which went to Queensland and a beautifully built HM14 ( built by Bob Cornwell at Luskintyre in 1990. Sadly learned of his death today ) This has also gone to HARS. Also dontated a massive amount of old props, instruments and whatever they wanted. Took 3 removal trucks to do it. They didnt want anything postwar nor did they want plywood, 4 metre lenghts of 3/4
  9. As the pilot was doing a full power runup prior to taking off, the engine cut out ( Rotax 912 ) and then burst into flame. The pilot managed to scrambled to safety, and the aircraft was totally consumed by fire. The AT3 was the only one in Australia (Kitplane) It is thought that fuel hose came off. Approximately 4 weeks ago
  10. Hi Scott. post some picies and we will soon tell you what it is, I have a complete Hm14 undergoing an engine refit and a partially built 293 that is an exact copy of Freds 290. You must be aware of the severe seating restrictions imposed on the pilot in these types of aircraft. These aircraft are made for small people ( designed for 70 KG pilots) even though the larger pilots who are tuning into this group will disagree with me. I have decided I am not happy with either of my Fleas. The HM14 is undergoing its engine refit to go to the TAVAS museum because the wing has been built with a swept

  12. Thanks guys for the input. I have imported vehicles into Aus before and I'm aware of the costs involved, Just importing an engine from Canada was unbelievably expensive and has blown out what was a cheap deal to a bloody expensive one. Phil if its very cheap I'll probably do it. It would be easier to find the Balerit thats in Aus and already on the register as thats where the fun really begins especially with the state of the RAA at the moment
  13. sorry to post it multiple times. struggling with the site
