James R Lawrence 

I still have a one-of-a-kind project at 3T5.  It is a single-seat, high-wing, vw-powered, taildragger.  Wing is complete and engine conversion is complete.  Fuselage gussets are water-jet cut.  My engine is a 1600cc and really needs some upgrading.  I’m using the Diehl System for mount, alternator, and magneto.


Please send your current projects to We'd like to get a current list of all Chapter members' projects.


If you have any aviation items to sell please send me a simple pdf document to with a description and your contact info so we can add it to this section.  We will post it here for 3 months unless you contact us requesting it to be extended or removed.

Do you have a project where you need some extra volunteer help or just want to convey some knowledge, let us know and we can put out a call.
