Canopy

Has anyone any info on new canopy supplies for the Nipper? Is it worth trying to get a number of new ones made?

No 36

Nipper No 36 is getting there... woodwork on the wings is complete and they just need covering. The fuselarge frame is done and work with all the wooden bits etc is underway. I am still looking for a Revmaster if anyone has one they want to sell.

Revmaster engine

Does anyone have any experience with the revmaster 2100d vw conversion. Can it be made to fit a Nipper? I have a new Leburg ignition (The engine is currently fitted with Lucas coils).

Nipper No 36

Work has started on a full restoration of Nipper No 36, VH-CGB. I am going to make it as original as possible. I am still looking for a suitable engine has anyone got anything? A Rolinson would be ideal.

Firewall finish

I have firewall and was wondering how they were finished. Mine looks like it has been painted which is probably not the thing to do, was the metal just polished? or is it coated with something?
