Hehe, I figured you'd take the bait, Lynn. ;-) I think a replica of any generation of the Comper Swift would generate a lot of interest. I have always preferred the non-Pobjoy models, both the delicate early Scorpion model that you mentioned and the muscular later Gipsy Swift. The latter might be more suitable to a "plus size" version for larger pilots perhaps using a readily-available auto engine like the 1.3 liter Suzuki conversions (100 hp Aeromomentum AM13 and others).
