    Hi Dave,

    In addition to any good tips you'll get at this site, a good person to contact in your area is Chris Falconar of Falconar Avia. He's located in Edmonton. He's also heavily involved in the RAA or EAA chapter there (or at least he used to be). Anyway, he has lots of experience with wood aircraft.

    Good luck

    Hi Ashraf
    I know Chris very well. I'll be meeting him Wed this week. I'm a member of the RAA and EAA here in Edmonton. I asked Chris about this some time ago when I was going to build his F11 which I never really got started. Still have the plans though. You never know, maybe one day. I recently bought a partially built Sirocco and that was the reason for the post. Looking for plans that I can read. Mine are in really bad shape. Chris is looking in his files to see if he can locate a set for me.
