| Have 3 view of Columbia XLJ-1 available for R. Cummings if he still wants it or any others interested.
From Old M.A.N. mag 1947, with a Jo Kutola painting of the Columbia XJL-1 on cover.

| I am interesting in building a flying model of the XJL-1. I have not been able to find a three view drawing although there are a number of photos on the web.
If anyone has a source for a three view, I would be most appreciative.

| I work for a small aircraft repair station in SoCal. The other XJL 1 is being restored in one corner of the building. It will be awhile before its done. The engine and cockpit are not on the plane so I could not imagine what the plane was suppose to look like. It is a unique looking plane. Not what I expected. |

| Mr. Winkler; Why is it you want to place engine in the tail section. it would takr a lot of modfication and screw up a perfectly good airplane.I was raised with this airplane and I know it flys and it flys very well the way it is.if you like to know more about the plane contact me for more information, Thank You, H.J.Scudder

| I would like to find out if anyone is interested in reproducing the Columbia XJL-1? I think its a good design, although I feel it could be improved by placing the engine in the tail, simular to the Seawind! |
