"Names Dennis and go by Footloose"
So that makes you a Footloose Flyer now? Couldn't resist as that was the name of a club letter of oh, so long ago.
But welcome aboard. Where `bouts in OK are you? Have a flying chum in Cushing.

Yup , I've got two Smith MiniPlane projects. Both are in nice condition . I am also closing on a house and will be going through a total remodel but I'm not doing the remodel . Got a crew that should be able to complete in , I hope , three months . The new location has a 30' X 75' red iron shop building . Can't really get to work on the projects until situated , my guess , the end of the year but that's ok . It'll be alot cooler then . I had a Smith Mini 35 years ago and had to let it go . Retired now and planes are still in my head , like the ringin in the ears . I've still got the original plans from my first Smith and have plans for several modifications and upgrades to the new one , which ever one that I go with . Thanx for the welcome folks , this looks like a really good Forum to be a part of . Happy to have found it .

Welcome, Tony. Glad to have you here. IIRC, I was the teenager (probably one of many) pestering you with questions about the Tuholer at Rockford one year in the 1960’s.
