I have the Sheber S1 on paper, may have it digital tomorrow. I do have an Airborne models S2 in digital, it is pretty much identical to the Sheber S2. I also have an S1 digital that looks to be pretty good as well, it is a no name but still nicely done. I also have the Christen Eagle digital and one called Spirit of Pitts which is like the Pitts Python or M12.

I now have the Sheber and EMHW Pitts in digital format as well as on paper. Digital I will give, paper I will not do. And I am only doing this to keep the bird alive and as soon as Rick is back in business I am done.

I got a set of plans from Rick Boyer a few years ago and built the Pitts S-1S as well.

Looks to me like some form of the red plastics with some logos applied. I like it.

The Pitts is covered with Monocoat (Missile Red & White). I did the vinyl graphics with a Silhouete SD digital cutter and software. Engine is from HobbyKing, 53cc twin, 21x8 Falcon prop.

It looks good and a twin fits the bill real nice. I have the CRRC 55 twin in mine, absolutely love the twin. If your going to do a build, carry on the Sheber thread and place it here.

Rick notified me last night he is back and all his plans are available. Here is his new contact email, rickboyer1984@gmail.com . He has the Sheber plans in different versions, the Christen Eagle with glass parts as well. I am done here.
Welcome back Rick!!

Yeah I did read it... LATE lol. I was at the top of the page at the time. I felt a bit of a dunce two seconds after posting. Got me some wide shoulders though so I can handle that admonishment no problem. I emailed Rick moments later and the rolled plans are beside me right now.

Won't be a bother any further.

CHEERS!
