  information given by Clark Seaborn :

1) V36 sold to Canadian F104 pilots Capt Bob Kadonoff and Major Wally Sloan, selling price 84,000Fr, based at Baden Sollingen with registration SLN 02, moved to Canada in hold of C130 to Moose Jaw airbase where it was sold to fellow pilot Robert Saunders.  Mr Saunders was flying it from Moose Jaw back to Toronto Ontario when water in the fuel caused a forced landing near Wawa Ontario.  Although little damage it was lifted out by helicopter and disassembled.  It has been stored since 1978 at Saunders residence at Saanichton BC on Vancouver Island.  Mr Saunders is an airline pilot.
2)  Stampe V36 has been owned by John Robert Saunders since 1977, and suffered an engine failure in that year due to water in the fuel.  It was damaged in the forced landing in a swamp near Wawa Ontario.  It has been dismantled since and the airframe is presently stored in Mr. Saunders house.  The aeroplane was purchased by Mr. Saunders, who was a Canadian F-104 pilot at that time, from Bob Kadenoff another F-104 pilot.  It was painted green and white in colour.  Unfortunately no photos are available.  The engine has been loaned to the air museum near Victoria BC and is presently on display there.  Mr. Saunders is a former airline captain newly retired and lives at Saanichton British Columbia Canada. 
An interesting historical note, Mr. Saunders father was in the air force during WW2 and shot down over Berlin and became a prisoner of war.  He was involved in the prison break at Stalag Luft 3. Mr. Saunders has his father`s flying and prison log books, and is planning a visit to the old prison camp later this year to document some of his father`s history. µ

  We could contact Robert Sanders and he gave us following information :

I still own the Stampe C-GSVB but it has been disassembled for the last 38 years.  It is stored in my workshop and I was hoping to rebuild it in my retirement.  Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures of it when it was flying.  We didn’t have iPhones in our pockets back then. I still have most of the parts except the engine which is in a local museum.
