Hi Goinstraightup,
Hi there, it is a really nice kit as I did build one. Easy to build!! And you can add floats for it if you wanted too.
Make me an offer for it? Thank you,
Joe

Very nice kit indeed. I built one in the late 70's when they were new and it is a very hardy little bird. The covering system is different but definitely outstanding. Once I use the covering I incorporated that system into my building. When I was building my DH Dragon Rapide I used the cardboard extensivly in the nacelles and also on the nose.
I hope a good builder gets your little airplane, I don't need two and mine is still in super flyable condition.

Hi JD,
I also built one in the 70's and the covering really worked nice and really scale, it was easy to apply to the airframe. I always wanted to build the DH Rapide, the one that Sweitzer designed! I can not beleave you still have yours!! Post of photo of it , Please!
Thank you,
Joe Pierson

My Howard is over in SE Oregon in my dads garage. The Rapide is very nice and not really too hard to build. I live in Portland and Bob sold all his plans and parts to, now I cant remember who got that stuff from him. It is all available again I just got a new canopy because I had an accident with the bird, currently rebuilt completely with new radio gear and I am going to replace my Enyas with a pair of Laser 70's from Proctor.Nice to see that kit is still around, didn't they do something else too?
