Proctor Nieuport 28 Silk and Randolph Dope Finish

Proctor Nieuport 28 Silk and Randolph Dope Finish

This is a great flying Proctor Nieuport N28 built in the 1990’s with over 200 flights, never crashed. This plane was flown many years at Rhinebeck Aerodrome and twice at the AMA Nationals. The plane was last flown in 2007 and has been hanging ever since. The Enya 120R four stroke engine was installed in 2006 and has 20 flights on it and has plenty of power for the plane. It weighs just over 14 pounds, and is a smooth graceful flier. It was expertly built with over 45 years experience, finished in the classic true surplus parachute silk and Randolph dope. The servos are now over 20 years old and should be replaced. The dope is showing true aging with light crow’s feet cracking just like an aged full scale and only adds to the authentic look. The plane has been stored in a dry smoke free environment and could be put back into flying condition in short order. Two turnbuckles will need to be replaced

I am asking $625 or best offer
, slightly more than the original kit cost with all of the accessories. This plane as it sits cost almost $800 to build and about 200 hours @ 20 years ago. I am willing to deliver the plane up to 100 miles for gas and tolls.

Please email me at qm4020@yahoo.com if you would like to see more. You can call me at (631) 662-1885

Hello,
The plane is on Long Island in New York. Zip Code 11747. Several people have asked the same question. I might consider go a little further than 100 miles to meet for deliverly as long as you pay the gas and tolls.
