For Sale
Mark's Models Windfree Glider

For Sale; NIB Mark's Models Windfree Glider kit. The box is a bit beat up, but everything is still sound inside. $100 plus shipping, or make a serious offer before the 8th of February when it goes up for auction at a club event. I "wanted" to build it, but life has just not "let" me! You know how it goes; too many toys, not enough time for them all. My computer is on life support, so make up your mind fast, there's no telling how long I'll be able to stay on the 'net. Good luck!

Jim

Hi Capt Jim,

Would you consider $85.00 shipped to be a reasonable offer?

I'm bowing out, $90+ was as much as I wanted to pay. Hope whoever gets it builds it & enjoys! I'll find another one someday or wait and build the XL version if/when it comes out from Skybench.

I built and flew two of these in the late 70's. LOVED my Windfrees!!! Tons of fun sloping her at Back Bay in Newport Beach...
Ohhhh the memories!

Cheers, Raul

Joe, that would work for me; I'll do UPS or FEDEX (GROUND) for that. OK? I'll accept a M.O. or personal check (with time to clear) or if you know if Paypal will work, that, too. (I'm new to the Paypal thing; just got into it recently and STILL don't know squat about it!). If you want some pix of it, email me at

capnjim@fuse.net


and I'll snap a few to send you. Jim

Raul, thanks for sharing; I'm a California native as well, be have been displaced for many years now, more than I want to recall! I really wanted to build and fly it, but time has a way of taking some things away from you that you never get back. I finally had to realize that fact and let it go. Glad it shook your cobwebs! Take care and keep the sun out of your eyes! Jim

In this case it is going to be a box of wood if it is being sold as NIB! NOt much color schemes going on there....
