I'd buy it. Not sure who owns the rights or what he would want for it but I do know what I would pay for it, and I certainly know exactly how I would market it. I think it would be cool to market a neat design. Can't take the money with you, might as well blow it on cool stuff. haha.I agree. Do you know any small business owner who is interested in building tube and fabric airplanes?
I'd try offering him 10 packs of cigarettes, a sharpened toothbrush, and a soap on a rope. That's considered a fortune where he'll end up.I read something a couple years ago that Dwayne Counts had accepted an offer for the rights but he didn't follow up on the sale. AFAIK, he still has the rights. Not sure how correct any of that is. It's ashame that little plane is not being built.
That is what I had last read. My understanding is that it took a lot of work to even get that far. What I don't understand is why those assets weren't seized, or why he wasn't forced to sell to reimburse those he owed kits and parts to.I read something a couple years ago that Dwayne Counts had accepted an offer for the rights but he didn't follow up on the sale.

How many are still operational?Serious question. How many "sub-Cub" variants are there?
Pop's version of the Koala
Tiger Cub Sport II
What's stopping me? Well, my current income as a business owner is doing quite well and I'm very happy with what I've built. So, money is not my number one focus with airplanes. Passion is.Scrapper,
What's stopping you from making after-market parts to support the Pup community? I've got a half finished Ultra Pup. If someone was making parts for it I'd buy them.
I think the Tiger Cub (tube and gusset) and the Fishers (wood) are still going. I don't think the Kitten was ever a kit and we all know what happened to Preceptor. So that leaves the rag and tube market wide open (as far as I know).How many are still operational?
I agree, that's why I'm trying to talk someone (besides myself :gig into putting out a kit. It's a safe bet Dwayne isn't going to do it since he's not allowed to have hacksaw blades where he's at.A scaled down single seat Cub tube and fabric with real folding wings......that looks like a Cub, would easily be marketable.
