Balsa USA 1/3 scale Sopwith Pup kit

Selling this for a fellow club member...

Up for sale is a Balsa USA Sopwith Pup kit in 1/3 scale. Kit is new in the box and never been started. Comes in two boxes, one big box full of the die cuts and strip materials, the other has the cowl and quite a few ply pieces. Owner says the kit is complete minus the manual which he cannot find. A new one is available from BUSA for under $10. Also includes a wire wheel kit, aluminum cowl, plans,etc, just not shown in the pictures.

http://shop.balsausa.com/product_p/461.htm

Wingspan: 108"
Length: 77"
Engine: 45~70cc gas


Now for the bad - box #2 got wet, so the wing sheets of the plans and some of the plywood parts were affected. Plans are a little crinkly, but perfectly usable. The wood is itself is not damaged or warped, but did have some staining. The owner hit the wood lightly with an orbital sander and most of it cleaned up, but just saying so there are no surprises. These are simple square and rectangular pieces, so if you're not satisfied with them, they are an easy part to cut.

Kit sells for $350 plus shipping on the BalsaUSA website - take this one for $235 shipped east coast, $250 shipped west coast. Paypal or money order, will discount for local pickup and cash...

You can power it with anything you'd like. The cowl is around 11" in diameter, so just about anything will fit in there....

I converted a 1/4 scale one and it worked perfectly. The batteries mount on the front of the firewall and aid in balancing. Send me your email if you purchase this and I will send pix on the eclectric setup
