I dont do pic uploads on this forum, but google RV-1 N1583 to see the similarity. The 3 has much smoother lines.
Thank you! I sure will.

Always wanted a -3B, thought about building one… ended up buying one.

Built in the UK by Ian Glenn and first flown in 2004, it was his second RV build and a masterpiece of metalwork. It's been perfectly cared-for by its last long-term owner for the last 12 years.

Powered by a 115hp O-235, it weighs 740lbs empty. To quote my friend who flew it home, "This is a hoot!"

On the ramp yesterday. I am scheduled to fly it up and deliver it to the new owner in a week. I wouldn't have ever believed I would sell my dream airplane, an RV-3B with all my wanted upgrades. But I have a dream girl that insists on sharing my love of flight and wants to go on every adventure together. And I have a super RV-8. So no remorse here........(yet)

Default Good choice!

Nothing better than having a dream girl that likes to fly..not too many of them out there. I am fortunate to have such a dream girl that I met while finishing my -4. She was the first passenger after the 40 hr. phase 1, and we had been engaged for a while at that time, so her immediate love of the RV made the wedding plans a no brainer... we got married in the -4 at 5280 feet above the airport in a 5 ship formation. Dream girl come true.
