OK Pete,
We're gonna need a complete set of plans, instructions and hardware list.
Or.... pricing for boxes custom made to our specs.
Very nice.

Nice rig! Since I prefer 'vintage wood' I like to pack 'em in vintage looking boxes replete with brass fasteners, stain and varnish. Plus, mine are stackable! If the sailplane doesn't survive the 'outing' then it doubles as a casket for burial!

This is what happens when Len keeps a set of wing bags. The model in the box looks stangely similar to something I used to fly at Visalia. And my crystal ball says Pete will have to build another box similar but white instead of yellow with a red Swiss cross on the tail once again. Strange how all these west coast sailplanes are being confiscated by my friends east or just about east of the Mississippi River. Now I am going to HAVE to go to the JR Aerotow to investigate further. Hmmm...

Thanks for the information. I didn't know the L-213, but have been googling it, and it is looking interesting. Thanks again.

You guys are amazing, special tender loving care transport boxes for your babies. I think I would opt for a generic box. what happens if your yellow Swiss sailplane bites it? I guess just a repaint and new decal. Anyway I need a job that gives me as much time as you seem to have, hats off to the effort. Exquisite craftsmanship!
