It's amazing what a coat of paint will do.  Its the HP-11 my Dad and I bought from John Stalick ( Potomac Maryland) two years ago.  We keep it assembled in a hanger out in Fort Stockton, Texas in case my Dad gets an urge to go fly it. 

Fort Stockton is an ex WWII training base.  It has long and wide runways which are great for auto towing. 

I try to make it out to West Texas to visit my parents at least four time a year, and if the weather cooperates, get in a flight or two.
