Its unbearably hot here in central California, so everything is on hold until it cools down. Its not a good place for anybody, farmers and dairymen are not getting a break either, thank the EPA first off. Check maybe in October.

Ive been thinking that the Central Valley of California will become a new desert as hot and dry it gets here. My stuff is in storage and when I take a look at it its safe and dry. There's still plenty to see. So come by early in the day and look around

A sharp eyed and clever fellow came by and snatched up a bunch of my gliders.
But there are a whole lot of R/C models left to see. Come on by and get a good flier.
No shipping. Cash only.

I wont be shipping kits. Looks like all shippers have fees on top of the actual shipping charges.
The stuff I'm selling will be a cash only transaction. Very simple, very easy.

Some new photos and different views of kits
There is a discussion elsewhere about Simcoe kits. Ive had the 70in Fokker for a very long time. Its a fav of mine and Im sure everyone else. If you saw the movie "Neighbors" you can see a big Fokker Triplane flying around the cul-de-sac.

The Sopwith Camel is a great WWl airplane. So when I saw the VK plan I couldn't help but tack it on the wall. It sure looked nice---like a work of art.
But as a kit the Camel is no longer NIB. Im not selling that VK kit. Im a hoarder anyway. There isn't anything wrong with the kit just the plan has holes in it from hanging it on the wall.
Other VK kits are in excellent condition.
Here are some photos

Everything is local pickup

Shipping two or three thousand miles from one side of the country to the other or to anywhere is not like walking next door and handing a kit to someone. It costs money to ship.
Ive changed back and forth a few times. I have shipped far away because some people understand the costs. I don't like shipping because there are fees on top of the actual shipping. UPS and US Mail both do it. I becomes unreasonable and unbearable to continue shipping and its all because I'm one person not a big time hobby outfit.

I have a lot of original kits. They are for the builder who wants quality. There are plenty of reproductions available. I might have a few repros. I will tell what is what. The price for originality and thoughtful craft is high.
PM me with any questions. I might have something you are thinking about. Local pickup!!!
