Well I called at Eurocraft today and met up with Ian from L.P.B.'s to discuss the fitting of wear patches, handles etc. Thanks to Dave from Eurocraft for accommodating my requests, you've got a nice set up there mate and thanks to Ian for helping me with ideas of what and where to fit it Here's few more pics now tubes are on. Quality are not very good as I had the wrong setting on my camera

Sounds like it was a good move to go with aircraft, if you'd gone with ribquest you may have lost your money! Rumours of administration/bankruptcy/buy out.
