Long EZ N944SJ as previously for sale on this forum: 

These canards are tough...  Seems it buffed out: https://app.ntsb.gov/pdfgenerator/ReportGeneratorFile.ashx?EventID=20060620X00771&AKey=1&RType=HTML&IType=CA

So back in 2015, when this plane was up for sale the first time, I did a Pre-Buy on it for a customer. While the owner stated that the landing gear had been totally repaired from the damage in the noted accident, when we jacked the plane up off the ground (I insist on BOTH wheels off the ground at the same time) I was able to move each of the wheels fore and aft approximately 2", with the motion occurring at the LG mounting points in the fuselage, on both sides. Usually, I get a bit perturbed if I can move the wheel 1/4", so this clearly was NOT an acceptable repair, and this was 8 - 9 years after the accident. I informed the owner of the need to re-repair it.

My customer did not purchase the plane - I have no idea what has happened to it in the intervening 6 years, but I'd look damn close at  the LG attachment if I was going to do another PB on the plane.

This backyard Vari today.   MMMMmm, love that fake woodgrain & bamboo paneling!   Cheap, but is it cheap enough?  183 hours in 42 years--that bird was a flyer.  🙂

I was committed to buying this Berkut. I recommend that anyone interested in this airplane reach out to Dave Ronneberg about it or someone to do an extensive pre-buy.

Dave Ronnenburg has not seen this airplane. He really cannot have an opinion on it.

Seen on the Cozybuilder's list today with one large picture below.

After too many years of no progress, I have decided to sell my project. The tub is complete through most of chapter 8. When I pulled it out of storage, I did discover the expected hangar rash along with what I think might be rodent damage.
The project is located in Lockport, NY and is being sold as is. The sale includes plans # 1039, the extra M sheet set from ACS, plans for the forward opening canopy (Uli Wolter) and several odds and ends shown in the pictures. I am asking $1500 but am willing to negotiate. Buyer is responsible for shipping.
If interested please contact me on the list or by phone (585) 735-5048.
Robin DeMarco Cozy #1039

This illustrates the incredibly poor kind of picture that is frequently found when people try to sell projects.   The person trying to sell should look at the background in the photo, then try again or hire a professional photographer.

Right-o A. Bruce, and the project should be "staged" in the middle of a large air-conditioned hangar with a white epoxy floor and beautifully-organized shop tools along the walls.  There are no epoxy drips on the floor or or foam-dust laying about.  The plans are laminated and presented on an easel for easy reference.  Parts-bins are on rolling stands and each drawer is labeled.  Smooth jazz or a blues channel plays in the background while an attractive lady grills steaks just outside.   🙂  Pic:  My shop the time the septic tank backed up and filled the basement with sewage.

This Cozy project today (one pic).  Poster was very active through the years but yeah, if it takes 15+ years, a person will lose enthusiasm.  Stick to the plans, build fast.  Price is pretty good.

The berkut had a landing accident or something along that line that I can remember. The guy bought it after the incident. It just got out of Jetguys shop in TN for repairs only. The owner is an interesting individual. Not a canard guy and sees $$$ in my opinion.
