German,
yes, its basicly a bushbaby copy, As far as I know it was build by Sky Scooter Aviation and model name of Vixen Barion. There was apparentley 6 build, this is #2.

There small differences like stearable nose wheel, sprung undercarriage etc .(this one was convertered to bungy BB version)

Karman, take some detailed shots of that truss behind the seat. I am trying to figure out what needs to be done there.

Wel, not much to update, except frame is now fully stripped and all controlls /roof/floors removed.

Next step to find reliable shot blaster/painter to repaint the frame.
