Graupner Kits, Anyone interested?

A couple of weeks ago, I had sveral inquieries for the GRAUPNER SEA FURY. I'm just curious how many of you would be itnerested in special ordering this kit. It will be available for June only if backordered so heres your chance to own a beautiful ARF Sea Fury. I will have 3 available only with backorder. Here are a couple of pictures for all of you that are not acquainted with this model. Picture#1 and Picture #2

Here are the details:

The SEA FURY is a model of an English piston-engined fighter aircraft which set a speed record from London to Rome in 1949. Even to this day, examples of the SEA FURY are still flown in the renowned Reno Air Races. Our model is finished in the current colour scheme worn by the September-Fury which is flown in the Unlimited Class at Reno. The model is of conventionalall-wood construction. The three-part wing is joined using a pair of strong wooden braces. When the model is assembled, the wing is placed on the wing saddle and the two front dowels engaged; two screws are then fitted at the trailing edge to retain it. The tailplane and fin are permanently glued to the fuselage. Two different methods are used to provide slop-free control surface linkages: the servos for the ailerons andlanding flaps are installed immediately adjacent to the control surfaces, while the proven DSS system (Direct Steel System) is employed for rudder and elevator. Assembling the model simply involves gluing the tailplane and fin to the fuselage, joining the wing panels, and installing the glow motor and the RC system. With a 20 cc four-stroke engine the SEA FURY produces an excellent performance in the air, with very nicely balancedresponse to the controls. The model can be landed very slowly if the landing flaps are lowered.

Also, how many of you are interested in tow planes and large airplane trainer? I mean, 2.4 mts of wingspan (94.5 inches). Heres the specs:
Picture #3 and #4


Specification
Wingspan approx. 94.48 inches
Overall length excl. spinner approx. 46.06 inches
Wing area approx. 1628 sq. in.


The TAXI 2400 is a development of the proven TAXI CUP, and with a wingspan of around 2400 mm constitutes a proper “large model”. We have succeeded in retaining the fine performance and flying characteristics of the smaller version, and the TAXI 2400 ranks as an ideal first model if you are keen to make a start in large model flying. With a suitable power plant the model also makes an excellent glider tug. The aeroplane is of conventional all-wood construction, and the major components are supplied ready-made and film-covered in several colours. Assembling the model just involves gluing the fin in place and installing the power plant and RC system. The servos are installed immediately adjacent to the control surfaces in order to minimise slop in the linkages. The rudder is coupled to the tailwheel and is actuated using pull-pull cables, ensuring minimum lost motion in the linkage.
