    Pics, specs, what the costs add up to, location? I am sure you will get a lot of interest in this just for the value of the parts if you post some basic info.

    Did you design yourself? I am always curious about unknown aircraft designs and designers.

    I will post some pictures within a few hours.
    This plane is my own design 100 %. I am a private pilot and an A&P certified aircraft mechanic.
    The plane is north of Montreal in Quebec and I have all the parts needed to finish it. The only part needed to complete the construction is the engine cowling . The wings are closed on the lower side and I am waiting for an inspector before I close them and cover then in fiberglass.
    I have already run the engine for testing a year ago and all went well.
    Propeller is a ground adjustable warp drive 3 bladed prop 68" diameter. I need to find someone to take care of it soon because winter is coming up and I have no place to store it.
    I will be available to give technical support for the future constructor...........
    I am open to anyone interested.

    An untested/unflown original design is going to be a tough sell beyond parts value... though I gather that's all you're looking for.

    He wants you to pay for the engine, engine computer, instruments and prop.

    that's probably $5k-$10k.. he's practically giving it away!

    Plus you have to get it into the US, so good luck with import fees/duties.

    Customs shouldn't be an issue, especially if the parts are US origin, and parts are rarely scrutinized like complete aircraft are. I've crossed both ways with aircraft. Figuring out the EAB certification will be more involved...

    I looked in getting some parts from Canada, and as long as they met FAA certification and were maintained as a certified AC, AND it was built in the US, getting it back was not an issue.

    Since this is mostly car parts with an airplane hull, getting the proper tariff code (or finding a broker that knows) might be an issue.

    There are some good deals up north, but shipping is usually the killer.
