    Yeah, I was thinking Falconar though now that Matt's suggested it I'll probably try and get in touch with Mr. Ord-Hume as well.

    I wonder if the original plans have provision for the later engines. CGF has an 0-235.

    The Luton Majors built with the old Phoenix aircraft plans have a lot of wood in the upper structure. The Cub Major upper structure is all welded 4130. This was first done by the builder of C-F00V (a brilliant gentleman himself) and then engineered and incorporated into the plans by Chris Falconar (sometime in the 90s) along with a lot of other little improvements over the years, like sealed ailerons.
