Kits kits kits

I seem to have forgotten about this forum, dunno why, duhhh

I guess I decided to hang out on the scratch built forum only to limit my
ON TIME on this forum.
That philosophy has netted enough interest and volume to date.

I have many kits from many designers , mostly from the Scratch Built Forum bunch.
It's been a thrill to be able to work with guys from South Africa to Perth Australia to
UK, Finland, Germany, France, as well as the USA.

I just cut things out, for who ever wants it, on my CNC machine.
I do custom work or just whatever comes along.

I have a Shopbot with a 4' x 8' table and also have access
to well priced Laser cutting.

It's only a retirement, hobby enterprise, but, it pays for an occasional RC goody.

Please contact me if you have something you want produced or put into CAD.
I usually do a complete 3D study on every models that I offer.

FOAM ONLY is my Motto don't want to compete with LHS at all.

So, this is about the only announcement here, even though I've been doing this
since 2006 !

I was formerly Northwest Cutout Service when I lived in Washington State.
I've moved to Indiana to be closer to the grand kids.
So, now I am Hoosier Cutout Service

Here's my shop and proving grounds ...
Bob's New Shop in Indiana (4 min 4 sec)

and my web site http://www.hoosiercutoutservice.com/

Please stop by for a look see.

Thanks for taking up your time.

Best

Bob were you associated with North West Models ? Foam core giant planes that they get sheeted with wood ?
Do you cut from Plans and do you cut large scale in foam ? 75" to 85" span?
Thanks
Lou

Northwest Cutout Service
Not North West Models .

Similar name but different.

I just do foamy kit cut out's.
Well OK, I have done custom and some Aero Tow sized glider rib sets and similar.

I have a CNC not a hot wire cutter.
So , if you have foam to cut , let's talk.

Span is only an issue when it comes to Shipping.

I recently cut a 170+ span The Twins out of 1/2 Pink OC foam.
It had to ship as a 24" x 48 x 20" stack of foam.

I mostly do 1/8" bit dia cutting but if you want thicker foam cut I can do it with 1/4" dia bits.
this is due to the lack of longer dia 1/8" bits.

I have also made Molds for Vac formed parts.
I.e. the turtle deck , intake ports and canopy on a Horton VII from HARD balsa.

But, be aware that 3D work tends to take a long time to machine.

OK, My e-mail is on my site but,
bob@balsabuddies.com works all the time :-)

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Best

Bob

FWIW, I've ordered from Bob, he's great to deal with, fast shipping and a quality product.

I keep thinking I need one of those large slide on the ground jets added to my fleet.

Wonderful comp , thank you so much, High and dry1 ! :-)

Just to be clear I wasn't posting this thread out of distress or necessity.
I was simply wishing to expose my services to another group to RCG members.

As for myself, I had been limiting my activity to the Scratch Built forum.
But, it seems to have gotten stale lately and I was just exploring other possibilities.

And this note:
Another set of Fly Guy 62 Ver 2 kits is going out tomorrow.
So, there is a possibility of hearing about them in Fla some time in the next week or so.
Or not ... you know how promotionals go .........
