Our Stampe, a Belgian SV4B, #16 when it was in service, is moving along very well in its repair/recovering.

One thing we could use is a nose chin-cowl, or chin-bowl. Ours is repairable, but if anyone knows of one in good condition, we'd be interested.

Can't help with the chin cowl, but I remember when there were one or a few floating around Chino after the film High Road to China was released. How does it fly? Like a Tiger Moth?

Should not be a problem if you don't mind searching in Belgium.

Thanks, but the reason we need a chin cowl is the reason everyone else has needed a chin cowl, and there aren't any.

A previous owner of ours found out that in a Stampe, the brakes are used as a taxying aid, not for slowing down after landing.

Rollasons made a few in fiberglass. Others are making them in exopy/glass.

I've had no luck with those sources, so we'll repair ours.

Hey Dave.
These guys do custom cowls. Top quality work, for which I'm sure they charge accordingly.

Thanks, Andy. For some reason I didn't see your post until now.

My general and rather extensive experience with restorations has led me to avoid the UK, and build local, whenever possible.

I think we'll repair the one we have, but I will contact that outfit for a quote.
