Some people just cant leave a good kit airplane well enough alone. This Zenith 701 is parked in Homebuilt Camping and has more than a few custom modifications.
The control stick is all wood, a beautiful burl that a crafty Scotsman might have used as a driver in his bag of golf clubs. The panel is retro wood with beautiful round gauges – until of course, you drop the solid panel in front of the pilot to find a modern EFIS.
The seasoned Ford aficionado will no doubt note the flat panel windshield panels joined lovingly with structural strips. There are many more crafty details that will be revealed in a future article in Kitplanes Magazine.
