Default Eclipse?

I have been told that this is a Henry Piorun design (an Eclipse). Just posting it here in case he sees this thread. Looking for confirmation and comments.

Henry, the seller said in all his years of flying nothing flew better than this plane. I know he was trying to sell it but he could not stop talking about how well it flew. I have a growing collection of classic pattern planes, this is just another one.

LOL, that's flattering but I don't think he has flown many of the new designs then!

My pattern interests are only the classic pattern planes. Retracts, tuned pipe and I am happy. The modern designs are of only a moderate interest.
