Sold
Douglas Aircraft Silhouette (Denver Area)

This is a Douglas Aircraft Acrobatic Slope Soarer from around 1993. It is used and in good shape. The rudder and elevator were detached by the movers but can easily be reglued to the fuse.

No electronics

Price $50 (Cash Local, Paypal otherwise)

Prefer to sell in Denver/Boulder area. For shipping elsewhere buyer assumes all shipping charges.

The wingspan is about 46". Need to go find a box to ship this, then I can get a more accurate shipping estimate.

I'll take it. My BIL can pick it up. He's south of Denver. Give me your address and I'll have him pick it up this week. gv

Your call, but I beleive I was first in line. I will take it at your price if shipping is reasonable! (If wing comes off we are talking about $10 postage plus packaging.)

RCDC, I didn't mean to cut in front of you. I've learned that unless you specifically say "you'll take it" it's still up for grabs even if you ask questions like you did. I had the exact same thing happen to me. I asked a shipping question, the next poster said he'd take it and he got the plane. gv

The sale is pending with gavoss as he has shown interest in several items and can do local pickup.

It'll be worth more than $40 when I refinish it, but I'll keep you in mind.

Not sure what needs to be refinished. Monokote is perfect. Fuse is glassed and perfect, tail sections came off cleanly and easily reglued. Plane was never crashed and always landed on nice soft grass. Had buyers come out and look at several planes and they were all impressed with the condition and I had multiple offers above the stated price.

I have decided to keep it.

I just assumed that the shipping company did more damage than knocking the fin off. You have my PM from yesterday. When you get ready to sell it, let me know. gv
