If this is the airplane you mean then, yes this one was built by a flying buddy some years back and it still makes the London Bridge float fly just about every year.

In addition 'Grey Beard' is currently building a pair of them in the Kit builders forum here at RCU.

Steve that is a buddys airplane and I have not flown it but I can say we have flown together a number of times as he also has a Schneider Sport like mine and have flown those and the swoose together. Its is a fine flyer and rather a hot rod with a .61magnum two stroke. It looks sort of like a late twenties Schneider racer and flys like it.
