There are some sweet models on the build. Even some CL models. Good to see. I have a couple on the go. Aeroflyte Spitfire and Kittyhawk.

I was initially thinking about the Spirit.
Got some rebuilds. Some new builds and a list of kits.

Astro Hog is a new build. A mate started it and passed away. Needs painting and fitting out.OS 70 FS

The Hog Bipe is a rebuild. Steve Wenban donated it in a broken state. Fuse is repaired and recovered in coverall. Wings are stripped repaired and ready for covering. OS 70 FS

There is a Boomerang 60. Repaired the wing and fuse. Fitted 2 sets of landing gear for floats or ski's and Saito 100 as a Glider Tug.

A couple of LE Weasels But I don't class them as a build.

Then there is the North American Sabre and Jug rebuilds as PSS models.

Minivec and Jart from Andrew Barnes.

Ubermoth and a Raven from NCFM to build.
.
Better get my finger out EH.

Oh Yes Like Stehl. I have to clean up my bench and shed.

Good to know some dimension and all up weight when your done too , nothing worse than using up your weight allowance on an empty box mines is 2.5 mtrs long x900 x900 so far it only weighs 2 kg but needs a lid yet

Cheers bud, The one on the left is a TEAL scheme, a Kiwi flyingboat service that operated between 1949 and 1960ish, the middle is build with the Sandringham fin and is an Antilles Airboat scheme, fronm memory which was ex Ansett, the third i can't remember off hand, another US sheme i think! Ivan's designs fly very majesticly, you would almost think they are real at the speed they float along!

"Steve" If you need to borrow a box I have a ski tube that fits at least three F3F planes I bought for OS travel. You even get a 20kilo allowance for sports gear when you use the box (used too anyway).

Hi,
My bench is almost empty of projects at the moment. I only have a ace simple ultimate with electric conversion that I will finish sometime.

Stehl got anything you want built? I could get something done by xmas between gliding trips.

regards,
Arie
