Default What Airplane should I put my G62 in?

Hey Everyone,
I have a Zenoah G62 that I've had for about 15 years, but never ran. I would like suggestions on an airplane built from plans, non military, and please no ARFs or Kits. I do have some experience in plan building glow planes, but have never had a gasser.

Right now Airage is having a 50% off sale for plans. Go onto there web site and pick out something in the giant class. My 62 was in a 30% Extra but I have the plans for the giant Hots and the WWI D-VIII. Both are designed for something like the G-62. Lots of choices.

Wendel Hostetler provides a number of plans suitable for a G-62.

I plan to put one in his Fairchild 24. http://www.hostetlersplans.com/

I run a 62 in a 33%   RV-3.   The plane weighs around 30 pounds and the 62 pulls it around great.

Tom beat me to it. Hostetler plans has a great array of non-military plans.

Yeah, I think Hostetler has a great selection of planes. I tend to veer toward some of the older planes anyway. A big Bipe might be just the thing. Thanks everyone

I actually found a box in my garage loft that had plans for a Leon Schulman "Kool Kanary", I wonder if the G62 is too much. Some have used BME58s and ZDZ60s on it.
