What would you like to build?
« on: July 18, 2021, 12:05:32 AM »
Here is an open question.   If there was a built up kit you would like to build either a kit at was in production and is no longer available or something completely new and you would like to see a kit, what would it be??

What size would it be?
Any features to be included in the kit and design?

Example;
68in Span hawker hurricane, electric powered, retracts, flaps. Wing and tail to be jig built, fuselage to be a box substructure. Plug in outer wing panels, top hatch, precut mounts for recommend equipment.

I would love a kit of the Lancaster bomber.
The cutting of all those ribs, fuselage formers, twin fins and rudders, have placed the project on hold for so long.
See the plan and my build thread. https://temac.ca/smf/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=7430.0;attach=32910
Of course, proper retracts would be needed.
A single piece wing is required because of the 4 engines and all that wiring for servos.
Perhaps adding the following features:
1- bomb bay doors with bomb drop mechanism
2- flaps for ease of landing
3- rotating turrets and moving guns
4- formers to make molds for a canopy and other plastic turrets and tail gunner.
5- design weight approximately 6 pounds

Hi Guy,
Here is a link to a kit. I think it is the one Glenn built.
https://www.sarikhobbies.com/
It seems the link is not complete but you will find the kit at this site.
What could possibly go wrong?

Kit Cutters make a Beech 18. I think it has about a 100 inch span so way to big for Rogo or I would go for it. I asked if they could make a smaller version but they said no.
