Breezys are Cub size. Where the wings come from usually. That nose on that one is horrible.

I agree that the nose on that Breezy is ugly, but with a Kolb-style full enclosure it could make a very practical modest bushplane.

Hello Don,
I am interested in the Bounsall Super Prospector plans if it includes the measurement and or a template for the ribs.
Kind regards,

Here is the deal. Do you want STOL for exhibition you know circus stunts, or do you want STOL for utility like carrying lumber, dogs, extra sump'in out o' the woods or what have you?Because that makes a big difference.

How did you like flying the Dyke Delta? The CH701 plans are tempting!

Hello Greg
Where abouts in the central west? I am in Parkes. I would love to come look at your VP some time. The first plane I built was a VP-2.

Hey VB,

This is a call to post a photo of the Monster Kolb you were building last year. ;)

It's a Hasbro "Transformer" toy :)

Actually there's a long, lurid, insomnia-curing story about squashing airplanes in that hangar. It's a large T-hangar, and many years ago the hangar "owner" (renting from LA County) has a PA-22-20 in there. I had an RV-3 and needed hangar space, and rented space under his wing. Then I had a Taylorcraft, and needed to have it inside, and we managed to get the T-craft and his Pacer in there, and barely close the door. You had to crawl under a fuselage to go around and open the other side door!

His Pacer came apart and went back to his house for fabric work, and he found a bunch of typical corroded longerons, and it got worse the more he poked around. The airplane never went back together.

So I started taking over more and more of the hangar. After a series of other airplanes, I got the 1956 Cessna 172 in the background of the photo. But I'm a hopeless tinkerer and always want a small experimental to do strange kinds of flying. But as you can see in the photo, there ain't enough room for almost anything else in there.

So to answer your original question, my research found that the Kolb series of ultralights and LSA's fold down to the narrowest width of any (conventional config.) airplane, and I managed to find a Kolb Firestar to fool around with.

So the blue Kolb you see in that photo actually folds down to a package narrower than the distance between the tires. And it fit in that hangar, with my 172,a nd all my other collection of crap, and Wayne's Volkswagen, and even a couch so I can have all my airport bum friends hanging around and BS'ing.

(BTW, the Kolb is now gone, the changes I made and how it "felt" in the air didn't work for my specific mission. Wasn't going to mix in with the normal GA traffic at a municipal airport. So I sold it, and recently got a Ridge Runner 2, which is essentially a single seat Avid Flyer, which will also fold up and (hopefully) fit in the hangar with the 172. Tinkering with that airplane now, so I am not 100% sure how it is going to turn out. But it should meet my mission when it is back together.)
