Manion - I have had the plans, boat hull frames, and water rudder parts for a number of years for my
Anderson Kingfisher. Now retired, its time to build it. I am looking for a set of Piper tripacer wings to
use and a Lycoming 0320A2A (150 hp). Do you still have your Kingfisher?

Could you use the wag aero plans to build the wings? There is a yahoo group but it's not very active.

Craig,
I suppose you could. The plans do not give a specific airfoil, but I did see a website detailing the type airfoil used. I just
did a search with the airplane name. WagAero wings are similar to factory built Piper Cub wings. I am intending use of
the Piper Tripacer wing as it is all metal and stronger.

I'm pretty sure, although someone will correct me if I'm wrong, Wag used to offer plans for a pacer clone. If not, they do supply parts for most of the high wing pipers, including I think, pma'd metal spars, fuel tanks and ribs. Probably worth contacting them and sounding them out. I think Wicks offer parts too.

I have a set of Pacer wings, looking to sell. They're in great shape, ready to be recovered. Going with the Alaskan mods, so I wont need the wings I've got.

I'm also looking for drawing #10 for the Anderson Kingfisher. I have a complete set except for #10.
Thanks

Hello,

I am in the process of purchasing a Kingfisher project here in Eastern Ontario, Canada. I've had a set of plans for many years but decided to get a head start by acquiring one which has many usable parts. I look forward to intereacting with other owners and builders on this site.
Cheers,

2 x Kingfisher restorations just starting in the Orkney Islands in Scotland, I will post updates.

O236 now rebuilt and Polyfibre covering about to be applied. It will be ready for flight in March next year.

Hi Ken,
Are you buying the one that was built out west but has never flown? I went to look at it early in July but it needed far more work than I had time for. I kept looking and found a Volmer Sportsman project that I should be able to get flying before the snow hits us again.

Good luck,
Ron

Hi Ron,
Yes I bought it but for very little money. In fact, the Piper Cub wings were worth more than I paid for the entire project. It was not as advertized and in fact I believe that it was built in the US and somehow re-registered in Canada. It appears to be mid 1970's vintage. I'm looking for for a new fuselage and have located one nearby in Ottawa. And btw, the Volmer Sportsman would have been my second choice for an amphib "flying boat"
Cheers
Ken

Hi Ken,
Certainly it had a lot of good parts included and will give you a great start especially if you can find a well built fuselage to go with it. I got the Volmer trailered home from Saskatchewan on Labour Day weekend so now the fun (and the work!) begins. When it's flying I will eventually be coming over to visit your neck of the woods as my brother has an RV-8 hangared in Smiths Falls.

Hi Ron,
I found a newly constructed fuselage just east of Ottawa for $1,000 Now in the process of putting the plane together. Ken #### C-90 Cub ##### New Member Are there other owners in the forum or any others building any, would enjoy hearing from you. I am restoring an Anderson Kingfisher. I also have another project that hasn't flown that has the fuselage built 90% of all the metal fittings including all the tailfeathers and a set of plans to go with it. Has a little hanger rash but a well built airplane. If anyone is interested let me know.

Hi, the new fuselage is very high quality as are the tail feathers that came with it. I started on rigging the vertical and horizontal control surfaces last winter. Looking at eliminating as much weight as possible from the plane. The basic plane I have has a CoA (it is the one built by Conrad Steward, taxi tested but never flown). I'd like to go with the original 0-290d, but if I can lighten it up enough will look at the 0-320. Between the two planes I have enough parts for a new one with some to spare, probably for sale. This will probably include an entire set of fuselage metal hardware.... Cheers, Ken
