2006-01-20 2005 Bruce Bishop purchased 2 fuselages and a set of wings from Earle’s Airpark in Hastings Florida.

Just my luck, before I had a chance to pick the parts up, Earle had a liquidation auction on January 20, 21 2006 using Starman Brothers Auctioneers and my parts were sold at auction.

Earle gave me my money back but I still need the parts for my restoration of N6208K.

If anyone knows the whereabouts of the 2 fuselages and the wings please let me know.  I will gladly buy them back.
