Title: Challenge me! ANY BALSA KITS FOR SALE???
Post by: Frank v B on October 13, 2020, 10:43:53 pm
I need a Covid build challenge for this winter.

Does anyone have a balsa kit that has been lying around your shop for a few years that you may never get to build?  I would be happy to buy it and build it.
Preference for a motor size from .10 to .46.  Scale planes preferred.  Just no trainers and no quarter scale Wright Flyers!   ;)
Please check your shop and surprise me.  Turn that box of balsa into cash.

Even if the kit is missing a few pieces.  As long as it has plans.

I so miss the London Swap meet.  There were always some unexpected finds.  Glenn and I would always buy something unexpected and compare notes over lunch.

Notice I am willing to pay for it.  Andy only comes alive when something is offered free like Guy's P-51 radio and Crash's free 72 meg radio. :D

I have the plans and a whole bunch of wood for the Skywriter winter build project a few years ago. My enthusiasm wasn't matched with actually spending any time building the plane. Happy to give you all of it for a very reasonable price.

Ben,

I have built the Skywriter and it is still flying.  Flew it twice this year.
Building it again would seem like punishment.  :P   Honest, I have tried my best to be a good boy this year. ;)
If you are trying to get rid of the balsa for a reasonable price, I will bite.  Then the project can be any of the 200 plans I have. 

An option.

Can you sense that @Frank v B is feeling that the supremacy of his prized collection of vintage 72 MHz TX's is being threatened?!  8)

Many thanks to @GuyOReilly and @Crash for their generous contributions in helping me out in this pursuit!!

In case you were wondering about Ben's comment on the Skywriter.  Here is a photo of Bill Quantock (aka Wingnutz) with his Skywriter.
