Hi Chris,

Have you been able to obtain a canopy for your model? I am located in New Zealand and am the custodian of the ASW15 canopy plug that I built in conjunction with Jilles Smits the designer of the model you have built from Brisbane Australia. I am coming to England stay in the Wirral with family for two months in June this year and am also a friend of Brian Sharp. I am intending on visiting some slope events while there and would be pleased to meet up and see the model you have built if at all possible.
I also have a short kit for this model I obtained from Jilles and intend to build it on my return from Europe during the NZ winter. I have a KA6e of jilles's design that fly's very nice. I generally hook up with Jilles at least once a year when we visit Australia at least once a year, or he comes to visit Family in NZ or attends our major Aerotow event at Omarama each year.
Refer to the following for views of NZ flying ( My KA6 is reg F-CDYL being a model of the full size in France) pictured in some of the pics on the site:
