    coffee sounds great. if you still have her come Oct. time frame maybe I can get down there for a couple of day and take some measurements. I did manage to find some drawing of the pelican but there are a lot of pages with out measurements.
    this is what the last wing design was

    Hmmm... Your wing drawing looks like it is from a "LePel-a-like." I have plans from BuildAndFly, which this may be.
    My EAA chapter is arranging some stored stuff this week, and I will look for emergency shelter just in case the hangar arrangement blows down.

    As stated, the wings I have, which I'm sure are the "real McCoy," are sheet alum, as opposed to the tube structures you showed.
    The horizonal stab seems about right from what I can tell from the fuselage.
    Would have to compare more when I get that planset up.

    Looks like mine is going to have to find a better home. My hangar space is going away and I have to find a good, new home pronto!
    All offers considered.
    Located 30 miles due south of Tallahassee, Fl, USA.

    Wish you were closer also, Fritz. I could probably pick up more hanging around you for a week than some terms in A&P school.

    well here in Macon/ Warner Robins area there are always new homes being built. usually 150k - 250k price range. Macon area being a little cheap than Robins area. ( due to crime rates ) the cost of living is not too bad a lot cheap than most places that i have been to.

    Thanks for the SitRep.
    I am working with a person that may provide a good, new home for LePelican in Texas. Will keep all you guys appraised.
