The following photos were received from Leon and Jacky Pecshe December 18, 2002. Thank you Leon and Jacky.
Leo has had considerable dialog going with SNA about the wing aft spar attach details. The following photos reflect Leo's resolution.
Leo's aileron bell crank details. And, headlights! His approach for studying the builder manual:
The following is a letter, and some photos that Leon Pesche sent to SNA. He has requested that I post it here as well.

Some photos with some questions.
If you look at the pictures attached, some parts did not come out according to the drawings!
Can I build them in the way they are now?
Awaiting your answer, have a nice day, Leon
[editor's note: I have just included all of Leon's pictures showing his referenced differences below. You can view the full size image by clicking on the thumbnails below. If you have comments you may want to email Len directly at Leon's e-mail]
Left hand non-return fuel flaps at rib B. Nylon rod 1/2" dia. Thread where fuel strainer is supposed to go in.
Both tanks I checked with 11inch water level air pressure. They both did not keep the pressure for the required book time.
LH wing I found a leak.
RH wing I did not find a leak although it did not keep the pressure for 24 hours!
Here's a letter and a several pictures from Capt. Leon Pesche.

Hello Seawinder builders,
Pictures can explain better some times than words!? Here I send you all I took with my SW(Sn.72)
MLG a. NLG. I also filmed certain phases on video, but on PAL instead of NTSC. If you have any
questions, you have my Email address. You may publish any of those which can help solving
questions. Only the day my SW will fly; I'm thinking of making some proper technical drawings with
accurate measurements. Now it takes too much time. I'm a very slow worker.
Questions about flap and Aileron alignment. (my pre-last picture)
QUIZ: WHAT"S THIS? (my last picture)
Have Fun with your FAIRYTALES,
Jacky a. Leon
