    Thanks for the links :)

    I'd love to see Dora flying. This beauty has to look wonderful when airborne.

    Ive checked out the Flugwerk site over the last year and it has greatly interested me. I emailed them once and they gave me the price on a new 190 at $500,000. I think it was dollars, I can remember if it was dollars or euros.

    You have to understand that the 500,000 is just the kit and then you have to put it together.

    Also the Flying Tigers Warbird Restoration Museum was restoring a 190 slavaged from a Norwegian lake. But because of Ivan they moved to Georgia from Orlando and sold the 190. I wonder where it went?

    I tried looking it up on the Warbirds Registry and could not find it.
