There are!

I spent time at a B&B in Haarlem, Holland two years ago and got to know the owner. His brother flies a RV-7 and a B-25 out of Amsterdam. If I find the contact info, I'll send you a PM.

Try that first. It's a small bite of the elephant, but it'll give you a taste. Be sure and join your local EAA chapter and get to know other RV builders too.
