See the attached pictures of a Q we saw at the Golden West fly-in. It had been a Q200, but the owner didn't like how it handled on the ground (it never flew). He cut off the canard and wing, raised the turtle deck to give more headroom, installed a tail, folding K.R2 wing, and a Jabiru 3300. It still hadn't flown. If only he had met Bob or Jim and installed the 6-Pack before he did all that work...
(Ed Note: Thanks, Brad, for the sighting. A little research revealed the plane's owner is Ira Mason of Meadow Vista, CA and he calls this a "Space Jumper". The tail wheel appears to be fairly close to original, but that "properly sized" rudder is not.)
