Is anyone looking for a VK Fokker trip project?

Is anyone looking for a VK Fokker trip project? I started it back in 2000 and after finishing the fuselage I though ďheck that wasnít so bad I could build a real oneĒ, well Iím still building and the VK is just sitting there so if you want it, its yours. My only requirements are:
You need to pick it up, I will not ship. Iím in CT
You need to send me pictures when done.
And most importantly, if I screwed something up you have to keep it to your self!!!!!

No one yet. Thought it would be hard to find someone in the area.

I live in CT. where are you? I live in New Milford. Here's a photo of my old VK triplane. Maybe it will spur you on to complete it! It took me a long time but was worth the effort. When I needed the engine for another model, I removed it and then donated the model to the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome model collection.

How far from LaGuardia Airport are you? If I coiuld pick it up from you I could handle the rest of your requirements. I once was in the same boat with a VK CAmel. I fleshed out the fuselage got stuck and turned the kit back over to a LHS Owner Years ago.
