Default Sig 100cc EDGE 540

I was turnig to make a low pass at full throttle, and I nicked a tre with the left wing, tearing the covering off tha wing and knoking the plane off its flight path. It hits the groung nose firs, shattering the firewall, and then procedes to try to roll over onto the already damged wing, shattering it as well.

Actual damage is minor to the fuse and surviving wing, but the metal wingtube was severly bent to the point where it is unusable.

If I can locate another left wing for it, I will rebuild it. If not, to the trashcan it is. Does anybody have or know anybody who has a left wing, a wingtube, a cowl, and a set of plans for this aircraft? (to rebuild the fiewall)

If this had been an flisyer aeroworks or pilot instead of a sig, it would have been completely destroyed.
