I doubt it. He is not computer savvy. I can ask. Do you have a link?

Mike didn't go through the process to flush rivet the LSA Bird, as he was trying to make it a slower platform. I believe the outer panels on the LSA were 24" longer than the standard S panels, the fuse was also wider than the S Fuse. I don't know what the wing is in the picture but if you could get the length on the outer wing panels that would probably tell the tail..........Dan

Makes cents for a LSA not to have "flush rivets." Less work . :P

I may have part of the puzzle ? ??? If you go to the ebay site in the description it sez the wings came with a Pazmany PL-4 donation to the EAA site . It also sez the wings are a "carry thru" in the fus. and it was modified to accept them . If you look at the PL-4 pics you can see the (2) steel wing fittings (S-18 ?) and the "mirror" aileron bell crank . :P I am NOT a detective , but I played one on TV for one season ! 8)

I'm with RB on this one, I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn last night but to me it's a Pazmany PL-4 wing modified using the Thorp "C" wing design features to be able to fold the wing. The aspect ratio appears longer than a Thorp C wing outer panel, my guess is that it will only fit the PL-4 fuselage that is also listed on ebay.

My 2 cents, your milage may vary. 8)

I hope the guy bidding on the wing knows this ? ??? They will be in for a big surprise expecting a T-18/S-18 wing when it doesn't fit exactly right ! ::) They should have stayed at the Holiday Inn with Bruce ! :P

It is one of a kind highly modified PL-4 look alike -- Engine is for higher HP not the C-65 and the T-tail is gone,
tricycle gear -- use caution for T-18 parts
