Hi everyone,
I'm Russ from New Zealand. I lived in California for 20+ yeas and flew out of RHV in Santa Clara. I was fortunate to fly 2 tailwinds belonging to Fred Weaver. I have a W8 fuselage - can it be converted to a Buttercup? It may be a little heavier, but are the dimensions similar? Regards, russ

Short answer...it's been done

Jim Clement's version of a Buttercup is a Tailwind Fuselage
and a "Type" of Buttercup Wing... and an 0-235
