I go the kit second hand and it was tail dragger. It is what it is.Makes some people jealous and others wonder why you would want the additional hassles (ground handling and endorsement). They look good though :)
I am building a 601 XLB Tail dragger in Canberra. All the big bits have been coming together over the last two months. First brief engine start, wings fitted and just got the controls wired up yesterday. So getting close.
What suburb in Adelaide? I will be over there 19-20 March of the weekend. Might be in your area.
