    The post has been up long enough to get me thinking. I would like to obtain the drawings of a WACO CG-4 cargo glider and build it with 21st century materials & airfoils. Instead of relying on an old C-47 to drag it into the air, I would go back to the lamp and ask the genie for an upgrade. I'm thinking of a P&W PT-6 mounted on a pylon same as a Lake amphibian. The thought of slope soaring with all the gang aboard tickles me.

    B-36J(III) featherweight.

    Realistically, I'd love to scratch build a Cabin Waco replica, but that probably requires more time than I can spare.

    I am thinking about a fail-safe multi-copter. I have an idea how to do it.
    But might want to work on something more " amazing".

    I would help Peter Plumb with his 0-100 project. See Homebuiltairplanes.com posts.

    Aircraft Design / Aerodynamics / New Technology

    Project financing concepts. Ref: junker.de and indiegogo.com and others.

    Pegasus DP-1 O-100 http://www.homebuiltairplanes.com/fo...ad.php?t=23767

    This project is ready to go and needs funding to continue in the near future.

    An accurate Curtis Sparrowhawk replica. Unfortunately I'd need to be 30 years younger with a lot more money in the bank to pull it off.

    A fairly small airplane with over 400hp and interesting history, what's not to like?

    If I had unlimited funds, I would put together a team to build a replica Lockheed Air Express. None of the originals exist, and it would be nice to have one around.

    On a more realistic note, I have been collecting parts and info for years, thinking about building a replica of the Piper P-2. Might actually get something done on this one someday!
