Robert Skipper vented his feelings about Verlinden and said a lot of things about their polocies, quality control and general outlook..
Good stuff omitted.....
You only have to go back to one of the early Verlinden publications, IIRC it was "The Venlinden Way", Aircraft volume.. There was a statement attributed to F.V. that went something like "If it looks like a 104............" that ought to be enough information to make a decision.
