I wonder what is hiding under that canopy cover.

I saw this airplane the last time I flew to Chilliwack for pie and can confirm that the sheet metal work is first rate!

If you read the original ad,
I read the ad. I still wonder what is hiding under that canopy cover.

Or, if you prefer a question rather than a statement: Why would a seller not photograph (or have photographed) the airplane with the canopy cover removed so perspective buyers could see more of the airplane?

If you read the original ad, it says: "135 hp, Lycoming O-290D turning a 3-bladed IVO Magnum prop."

Looking at those photos I do not agree. I guess there are degree's of 'first rate'?

Reminds me of the oft repeated phrase that "if you give an Englishman a piece of metal he will do something foolish with it..."

The builder of this thing must be from England.

Are you sure? The ad says it's a Sonix, whatever that is.
I am sure! I know that plane. It is a Sonex. I used to know the builder. I haven't seen him in 5 years since I moved. He never mastered take offs and landings in that airplane. It first flew around 2013 and I see it still only has 25 hours on it.
