Anyone know where to find a BT-13A tailwheel boot or a boot pattern?

Thanks!

There's a guy who sells BT-13 stuff on barnstormers. Maybe try Califirnia Airframe.

SkipInge,
West Coast Wings in Ukiah, Ca. They are rebuilding four BT-13's. A friend of mine saw the planes the other day. He said they look better than factory new. They might have a pattern, or two. Ask for, Nick.
Phone number: (707) 462-6882.

Nick at West Coast Wings said that he had a pattern. Gary at American Aero Services said that he can put one together with the pattern so I think I can get something workerd out! Just getting a good lead was half the battle! Thanks Jim!
