That's great, PM sent!

Here's a quick side by side for interest. Bit hard to pick from photo but from memory JPF quoted the modded one at roughly 30% bigger than original. I'm thinking of putting original rudder on my Slick for a test to see the difference.

That would be great. You could answer the question about differences in flight characteristics other than the wing rock in upright harrier.
The rudder looks good!

OK, I made up a box to fit the rudder and chucked an original rudder in with bubble wrap to authentcate weight size etc and went to my local post establishment. For the two guys that are serius about the rudder I have a quote of $18.50AU to post to UK and it's the same to Switzerland. So add to that $40AU (I worked this from an average of offers) for the finished and covered rudder with CA hinges and control horn ready to fit and fly. You can work it out from your currency and I guess with the EU/Frank etc it will work out very reasonable.
Pls PM if still interested.
Thnx

Rebuild

Here's couple of pics on how I plan to rebuild the motor mount. Little bit different approach, interesting to see how I will succeed... I'll also practice fiberglassing by fixing the cowl. It's one thing I haven't done yet and this is good opportunity to learn how to do it.

This will take some time, I'm not expecting this plane to be in air very quickly. And it will gain some weight in the process, too. Nevertheless, the airframe is too good to throw away.
