I have had the kit since about 1996. It was partially built when I got it. Never did any more with it. There are two people on here wanting it. Waiting for the first respondent to answer my email or it will go to the second guy. At any rate, it's sold one way or the other.

I have sold my Globe Swift to TJK. Knifeedge spoke first but he won't respond now so Tom gets it.

In case anyone is interested Lee Robinson with Robinaire built a set of struts for some retracts I already have. He can also make complete gear for the Richard Swift. Lee knew Corvin and he tells me the Charles Richard and Corvin Miller Swifts are very similar. Charles knew Corvin and some of the pictures used for the article on Miller's Swift were actually of Richard's Swift. Eric still has his dad's prototype and it still flies!

Is this aircraft still for sale? lpwilson@frontier.com

I just looked at the plans. There are several sheets of the same plan. The danged bugs (silverfish) in our attic made swiss cheese out of one end of each of them but they are still perfectly usable. There are also several sheets of bulkhead templates.
The Plans are Dated 1992 by Jack Dunkle, JMD Models.
Wingspan 92"
Wing Area 100 sq in.
Weight 18lbs.
Length 60"
Retracts are custom made by Robart.

I'll get some photos in the next few days.[/QUOTE]

I had a complete airplane for sale, f-glass fuse, wing cores, plans, retracts, canopy, etc. etc etc. It has been sold. Not sure where your confusion comes from if you have read the entire thread.?

I was not referring to the one you had for sale sailr. I was speaking of the one that the rest of the thread has been discussing. Don cleared it all for me.

Ah, I see. Sorry about that. AFTER I made that post i saw Don had furnished some emails for plans and short kit. MY BAD! I tried to find the edit button to delete my post but I guess RcGroups doesn't provide that service like other forums.

Erik's cowls and plans are REALLY nice and the Laser cutting on Barry's kits are also VERY nice. I am happy to have these pieces and can hardly wait to get started, but other things are in the way at the moment. Get em ordered and start a thread Lets see someone start one of these cool planes
