Looks like this is the "inspiration" for that plane (MAN Oct. '91, called 2 Ugly).

Just got my HANG 9 40 Cub and floats in the mail today. It will probably get a 35 electric. I do have an old HB 61 from military drone targets laying around. The Army and Marines use to shoot 50 cal at them, Goldberg made a 60 fomie, kind of jet for them. They also had K & B 65s in some of them. I'll fly the cub on wheels first and really look forward to Lk Havasu, AZ next year. wallace.tharp
