home / Kit build yes

If it was supposed to be easy, everyone would be doing it!

Found it!

http://www.airliners.net/photo/Murphy-Renegade-Spirit/1687270/L/

Registration is appropriate too  ::whistle::

Apparently there are quite a few of the type... http://www.airliners.net/search/photo.search?aircraftsearch=Murphy%20Renegade%20Spirit&distinct_entry=true

OK, let's try this one, taken at my local field 3 weeks ago... just before its first flight after having spent 18 years in parts in wooden boxes.

Does that thing up there even fly??? Damn it. The cabin reminds me of Shturmoviki, but russians do a different kind of crazy. ::knockedout::

This is the type here
EFW C-3605

The C-3605 was a turboprop conversion of the C-3603 fighter-bomber of which 144 had been built between 1942 and 1944. The conversion prototype flew for the first time on August 19, 1968 and in total 23 C-3605 conversions were completed by late 1972.

The conversion needed a 7 ft (2.13 m) extention to the nose to balance the aircraft as the 555 lb (252 kg) mass of the 1,100 shp Lycoming turboprop was about half the weight of the original 1,020 hp Hispano-Suiza 12-cylinder V-engine.

Perfect!

And yes it does fly pretty well. The low pass over the runway at 275kt definitely put things straight... I need to edit that video.
That nose really is a bit too long...

AFAIK there are only 2 of the type in flying condition. A third one, still the piston-engined C-3603 is close to it but was left untouched for a few years now, so would need some work.

Hmm that looks a lot like a Grumman Goose, but... single engine? Or is it just an optical illusion...

Ok  the general rule is who ever got the plane right gets to post next but you have to wait until its been confirmed before posting a new photo. and try to take off any markings to make it harder.

It's a Fairchild 91.

OK. The beginning of the thread looked pretty much like a free for all  ::drinking::

And try to save/rename/whatever the images too. After posting I noticed the URL...
