Thorp T-18 Finished!

Recommended Posts

For those of you that have been members here for a while you may remember posts I made of this project as I worked on it over the years. The Thorp T-18 is a very popular home-built aircraft that first flew in 1963. My father built his first one in the late 1960's, and I was his faithful co-pilot. Over time he has built 3. This model is of the current Thorp we fly today, and is a very detailed rendition of the real plane. It features 3-d gauges, a high-definition VC, many custom animations, and the landing light effect is modeled so that it will illuminate objects on the ground. It is available in the Avsim file library here.

Looks good! Out of curisoity, how much does it cost to buy one of the real ones?

The cost would depend on a number of things...there are many variables as these planes are amateur-built and as such have many differences between any given two. Things like instrumentation and engine hp can have a pretty big effect on the sale price. A quick look at Barnstormer's found 5 for sale with a price range of $20k-$38k USD.
