Sterling 1/2a Corsair

would anyone have one of these kits still unbuilt that I could get a copy of the templates for ribs and bulkheads.

Thanks ,

I do not have the kit in an unbuilt state but the planes are there in one piece. I can dig them out if you need a copy of them.

I built the kit over ten years ago so I don't think so. The out lines are not on the plans?? I thought they had all of the out lines shown on the plans. I could be wrong about the out lines.

I am sorry for the long delay. Life got in the way of any fun. It was as if my time was not mine any more. I have torn my garage apart and have not found the kit. I have no idea were it went.

I have gone through most of my plans and have not found them in there so I am at a total loss as to where they went. I have a walk in closet that is kind of a black hole, it is where most things end up so it may be in there. I will look tonite and let you know by no later then tomarrow night, promise.

No real trouble, just life.

I am now missing four kit box's. The box's had all of the left over stuff in them. Plans, misc. hardware, stock items I did not use. I am wondering if my better half thought they were junk and tossed them. I will see next week when she gets home. I never throw the plans away and I can't find them either. I have a large cabinet that is just small cobby holes and the plans fit in there just right an I have looked at all of them and did not find the Sterling Corsair. I found my Topflite, Guillows plans but not the Sterling set.

I am sorry that I thought I had them and now find I do not.

Dru.

P.S. Have you tried on other boards to see f some one else has them??? Ae you interested in a built one??

3810 I found a guy on another board that has a kit he wants to sell. He wants $50.00 for it. Let me know if you are interested.

Dru ,thanks for the info .I live in Australia so postage out here would cost me a small fortune!Maybe I could get in contact with him and see if he would copy the plan for me before he sells it.Could you tell me where you saw the ad.
Thanks

3810 chack out the vintage section at R/C universe. I posted there and he has one. You might want to check and see if the postage is really that high. It is a small box and does not weight very much.
