    Re: Cassutt - looking for anyone who knows anything about it

    I did say 20 if everything is new, except engine. Scrounging costs time, lots of effort, and you have to have cash any second a deal that moves your project forward comes by. A $2000-3000 project is like getting $10000 worth of materials and time. A $10,000 plane will not have new grove gear with fancy wheels and brakes, you will be making the cowl and wheel pants, pretty much nothing prefab. Solving problems means the builder solves them.

    Re: Cassutt - looking for anyone who knows anything about it

    $ 1K for a Hershey bar Cassutt wing on Barnstormers.com AS OF YESTERDAY 2.13.17. That's a good start for a Low cost Cassutt build. I'm sure there are some Cassutt fuselages around for another grand. A couple of months ago a ratty looking C 150 sold for a little over $ 8k on ebay. Part the plane out, keep the engine, instruments engine controls. So now you have a low priced engine and instruments for say $3K. Now we're at $5K. Some "SUPER-SCROUNGING" like this COULD get you in the air for $10K..................Not impossible,....

    Right now on Barnstormers, there are 2 C 150's for sale cheap. 1 for $ 11,400....the other for $11,500 and they're both flyable with current annuals ! The $8K one was a "haul it away" condition.

    Re: Cassutt - looking for anyone who knows anything about it

    I agree.....The wing skins alone are about a grand. There are hershey bar Cassutt WINGS out there in numbers, and a grand for one is a good price. I saw pictures of the one advertised, it seemed to look very nice.
    Time is money. If you don't do a build yourself, you will spend much more to hire it out. But, in the case of 111M slab wings, If you can buy one for less than 1800 bucks or so, you have just saved a winter's work.....

    Re: Cassutt - looking for anyone who knows anything about it

    On Barnstormers is a deal on a Cassutt project...less than a grand for a project that is probably worth $2500 in materials cost.......in Florida......Throw away the turtledeck, but if welding is good, this is a great start .......

    I saw that project too. Worth it just to take up space in the hangar if anything.

    Yes, it is close, but I already have a project, a Glasair. If anyone here needs a place to spend the night on the way to collect that project, though, let me know.

    Yes, It can be reasonable to put a Cassutt together for 10K or so, with these options.....
