Note for our US-builders:
The plans are metric. However, I did build about 45% of my Cherry S/N 159 living in the USA. For most of the metric material needed, there is a substitute (in inches) available. I purchased an used a reasonable amount of tubing and sheet metal from Aircraft Spruce for my Cherry. Though, I kept all bolts metric according to the drawings, they are available in various stores and US-online-shops.
