For Sale - CHIPMUNK (Vintage Model Products Kit) Ready to cover 850 sq inches

CHIPMUNK (Vintage Model Products Kit) Ready to cover 850 sq inches

Here’s a classic Chipmunk kit. Nice light built up balsa fuse with balsa covered white foam wings and tail.

I was thinking it might make a good Glow to E power conversion kit. It’s at the perfect stage – all framed up and could be “lightened if desired” before covering.

Asking $100 plus actual shipping cost. The box is BIG (49*19*7 inches) and shipping is from ZIP 95403. Please calculate your actual shipping cost and include insurance.

Post here or PM if you are interested or have questions.

Happy Landings,
Dave

More information

The wing, stab and rudder need the control surfaces cut out and trimmed. Guess you could do just ailerons or ailerons and flaps if desired.

While I was pulling the kit apart for pix, thought I should weigh them. Only have my cheap 10 lb spring scale at home…. Please note: none of these weights are to the gram – just easier to read the gram needle.

Box – complete – 3500
Fuse 400
Wings 500 (a little less)
Stabs, ruder, and balsa capping shown in picture, 120
Glass cowl – 40

Left parts bag – 1200
Right parts bag- 1300
Hardwood and gear –etc 2200

I have stored the kit for quite a while – and now that I looked it over – it still looks sweet.
A tiny bit of damage to one wing tip – but that’s about all I could find. The big Clear Chipmunk canopy is still wrapped in stock shipping paper – so I did not unwrap it.

Dave

PS: This Chipmunk is BIG ENOUGH to see! I laid out the kit on my drive way and a 10 mph wind swept it back into the garage. Needed to move parts inside for a picture.

Think it should be fun.

Hi Guys,

Mark - I sent you a PM on picking up the plane.

John - If Mark can pick it up, it would be safer than shipping. However, if Mark does not take it, I will let you know.

Thanks for the replies.
Dave

Hi John,

Mark won't be able to pick up the kit after all.

The box is BIG. 49*19*7 inches, which makes it over size. Weight is 9 lbs.
Shipping is from ZIP 95403.

It looks like about $50 to ship UPS ground. Do you still want it?

Dave

<SIGH> I just ran the rates also, on Fedex and UPS, to see if I could perhaps help out somehow but they are both like 45 bucks plus! :EEK: I miss DHL. This shipping of airplanes has just about been priced right out of the normal mans reach.

Hi All,

The kit is sold to John - pending payment and shipping details. I will mark the thread "sold" as soon as it's shipped.

Thanks for looking and the replies.
