any link to Piper, Ken?
Martin is on the right tracks. Yes, believe it or not, this was converted from a Piper Cub!

Did "they" modify the tail fin?
Yes, heavily modified! The wings were clipped as well.

Yeah. I googled "Low-wing Piper Cub conversion" and copied the first thing that appeared.

this was converted from a Piper Cub!
Now, why would they want to do that?

"Low-wing Piper Cub conversion"
Not low wing Graeme - try mid-wing. It was designed as an aerobatic aircraft.

If the link with Fokker can be worked out you should then have all you need to identify this with a quick search in Aerofiles

Edit...you'll need to adjust the spelling though!!

Not quite mate...bearing in mind the characteristics of the challenge aircraft, you need to think which Fokker it would be named after
