Can anyone measure the Alfa wheels that come with the retract kit? I am looking for a dia. in inches. I am getting the Alfa retract setup, but a different brand of wheel, just need to get as close as I can to the dia.

Thanks.

They're kinda on sale indirectly, depending on if you can get over $150 or $500 on your order...

Harv,

I wish I hadn't just seen your last post, it made me push the button. Outa control again.... . $25.00 is $25.00, my reasoning.

Got this Sopwith almost done. Then I really need get busy finishing up the KMP B25, then I got the FSK Mosquito, then this thing...selling other stuff like crazy to make room.

They only get discounted if Hobby-lobby is trying to get rid of inventory. This wont happen on this plane for a very, very long time if ever since Spitfires are very popular planes.
If you want one, you better get it now...sicne there is a sale depending on total amount of order. You can get $10 off simply buy getting the plane itself. Spend another $18 and you get $25 off.

Meh heh heh heh...nothing more fun than linking to a sale to push someone else over the edge. We lemmings shall all go over the same cliff together eventually.

Have a look see at the step by step pictorial on Alfa's website

Yeah, she likes a bargain, thats for sure! Its a heck of a tool to use when sweet talking, and I did go that way about 8 planes ago. Now its me saying, I promise this is the last one...I said that like 3 planes ago. I would love to pull the trigger on this one, but I'm gonna have to hold off. Maybe toward the end of the year when I see what the profits are for the business (hopefully there is a profit). If I can bring home enough money, maybe she will see that i've bennifited the family and I can toss a couple more planes in the hanger I've got 2 alfas sitting in the closet ready to be done once my other two retire. Got a razorback and a corsair sitting in there. Open them up every now and again. Would like to have that spit sitting in there. I may just make some room for it, and pull the trigger.... AAAHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGG!!!!

Do what you gotta do. Thankfully, I have don't have to worry about buying another plane...(a little bragging here) but I haven't received a single complaint yet about my airforce. She gets her pocketbooks, and I get my planes.
