Be very careful when purchasing a partially built 701. Always make sure all of the construction logs and photographs for what you wish to buy are present. You may find after inspection, that what is represented by the seller is not always valid fact. Make sure the plan numbers match what you see. I found out the hard way.

Hi Darren, can you email me with what ya got.

Darren, thanks for your post and reminder to builders to be careful when purchasing a used kit or airplane. Over the years we have heard from too many customers who thought they we getting a good deal only to find out that they didn't get exactly what they had hoped for. Be especially careful with online listings or auction sites, such as eBay.
Several years ago we published a notice: Scam Alert: Buyer Beware: Tips on buying a used aircraft kit or sec... after numerous buyers were scammed...
It's my experience that kit builders are especially vulnerable to scams since builders are such honest folks (and maybe too trusting sometimes...).
