Ikon N'wst kits wanted
I'm looking for several Ikon n'wst kits. I plan to build and fly all the kits. I love the subjects of Emil's kits and wish to bring some of them to the air.
Please let me know if you have and are willing to part with any of the following kits, only complete (including fiberglass where applicable) and unstarted kits please.
Ikon n'wst kits I'm looking for:
1. Stinson 108
2. Aeronca Champ
3. Fairchild 24 (R, W or both)
4. Rearwin Speedster
5. Mr. Mulligan
6. Cessna Airmaster
7. Waco UPF-7
8. Waco Taperwing
8. Waco YKS

No Lockheed Vega on your list? I think that is one of his most beautiful kits, albeit nearly impossible to find.
I too am an Ikon fan, regardless of what people think about Emil's engineering. I think he was ahead of his time given the limited resources for design and manufacturing back when he was in business - he was true builder.
Good luck with your search and please keep us posted if you start any build threads.

I do indeed have the Lockheed Vega kit. I stumbled across it when looking for the Ikon Stinson SR8 kit. I'd actually never intended on looking for this kit as I thought I'd never have a chance.

Please let me know if you do decide to build the Vega, please start a thread. I have one as well but have been a little intimidated to build it as there are no Ikon Vega build threads that I could find.
I also have their Mulligan and Stinson kits as well.

It will probably be some time before I build the Vega. I'd like to get a few more kits under my belt first. My next build will be the Monocoupe 90, I do plan on starting a build thread for that one. From the searching I've done I've only found a couple build threads of IKON kits, a Cessna Airmaster here and a Monocopue D-145 build over on RCSB.
