Thanks, Richard. The info received today, from this group, as well as talking to the owner/seller has resulted in me walking away. I too am at risk of being a hoarder.

The one in the photo looks to have UV damage that is what causes the glass to take on that silver or white look. Definitely not a fuselage I would use and Lord knows I try to save every neglected project out there. My wife calls it hoarding. Lol
Thanks, Jay. This is very helpful information and, to be honest, I am halfway looking for a reason not to go to the trouble of "rescuing" this Q. Therefore, any helpful information like yours below helps me make the decision to walk away. I plan on talking with the owner again this week for questions and clarification on history and condition before I even think about going to see it.
The one in the back he is keeping and plans on completing by next year. He gave up on trying to do two of them.

A couple of thoughts. There appear to be square patches on both the fuselage and the canard at the root on both sided of the plane. This is the location of the carbon fiber spar and could spell trouble. I would query the seller as to what was done there. Perhaps a repair after a huge flex or even failure of the spar on both sides? Also on the left side canard, top surface, the sanding has gone through the weave. At least one, maybe two plies are compromised. This will need to be repaired to be airworthy. It looks like there are two Q’s there. The one that you are looking at is set up for the revmaster engine. Firewall will need to be modified to accommodate the O-200. Maybe the canard from the other one is available? Can’t see it from the views you sent. Also, beware of UV damage if these have been sitting outside for a long time (looks like they have).

Subject: [Q-List] Q200 Project - For Sale Soon w/Avionics available
Good morning all,
I have attached the only photos I have for reference. I am picking this project up by end of the month and will get all the details once I get it back to my hangar. It is supposed to have everything except an engine and avionics and the tail "needs work". I will either keep for parts or bundle the avionics that I am taking out of my plane now and sell it to anyone wanting to take on a project.
Looks to be the LS1 wing as well as the forward sliding canopy. I am not yet sure of the condition of the canopy.
Not sure what price to put on this yet as I need to see the condition, inventory parts, complete the purchase, and then value my avionics that I will bundle it with. I maybe even have my panel guy cut a panel for it while he is doing mine.
I just wanted to get the word out if someone is interested and wants to be updated as I acquire it and get it home to Dallas.
