As I do not have the skills for a scratch built - I was wondering if there is a laser cut kit for the B-24 in the 70 - 80 inch wing span range? (I would love to build it 1/12 scale, but don't have the flying field / transport capabilities for this size - - or the wallet!).

Thanks in advance for any inputs - and sorry for thread drift.

Check out Precision Cut Kits, also National Balsa.
Kit Cutters is no longer taking orders for kits, hasn't been for at least ten years.

Great to see you back in the game Jay. Skinning is fun b/c it looks like you are getting a lot done in a short time. Keep plugging.

A new transmitter! That's a good sign!

My two mixes on the 6EX are a real limitation but I cannot seem to get myself into a position where I'm happy to spend out on a Tx with better capabilities.

That's because I don't like spending money if I don't actually HAVE to - but my rationalisation is that it's a good challenge to set things up with proper geometry and so on...
like having the pull-pull wires to the nosewheel steering spring loaded so no force can move the wheel when out of square.

My Caribou still has an RCLander retract in nosewheel position with one of HK's sequencers operating the door but I don't think it will survive to flying stage. I swopped out the units on the main legs for a couple of old servos I had reverse polaritied. Fixed a pinion in place of the output arm and added my usual micro switch system to fix end stop positions. So the new rack system has far more authority and doesn't whine and groan sounding like it's going to stall at any moment.

That's the kind of recycling that puts a grin on my face!
... as does knowing that you're still on the job!
Power to your elbow my friend!

I got something in mind for the cables to keep them out of the way.. I really got this TX because of the S Bus feature.. allows one to do some really interesting servo placements.. that and it has 14 channels to play with.. Bombers have a few things that need to be on their own channel..
