N196RV was built by Robert Sipes of Silverdale, Washington in 1996. Two owners later (January 2010) I bought it and I am having a blast with "Tweety."

Built by Ralph Koger in 1995. Just arrived in Springfield, VT with a little over 400 hours on her. Looking forward to flying her as soon as I can get some transition training from Jan Bussell in Florida.

The X...
 
After 10 years I finally finished my "RVX" project! This is a hybrid I built from church donated RV4 wings and tail and a 6A fuselage converted to "standard" configuration. I also used RV4 gear legs, 380X150X5 tires, airboat racing 0-320, MT fixed pitch and kept it light. 945 lbs and it flies like a RV3! It's lighter in pitch and roll than my HR2 and reminds me of my RV4 I finished back in 97, FUN! I borrowed the paint scheme from an MAF Kodiak!

X marks the spot
 
Thanks Don/Bob,

Appreciate the kind words, I too wanted to call it an RV-5 but it turns out Van built one and the pieces are in the rafters of his hangar. Oh well:)

Smokey,

I sure would like to learn details on how you did this.

Cheers,
Andrew.
