Lanzo bomber kit


Does anyone know of a company that is making a lazer cut Lanzo Bomber kit for .25 two stroke?

www.klarichkits.com/ has about 25 sizes of Bomber short kits.

www.bhplans.com/ also has several sizes of kits.

You may need to be a bit more specific as to which Lanzo Bomber you are thinking of. For there are two versions. The wing center section and tips on each being different. I did the plan and parts for the larger versions of the Lanzo Bomber for Bob Holman several years ago. And, although original plan indicates that two versions can be built from same parts, they cannot.

Jim O' Reily came out with a small version and the one by Klarich is not a full kit, and missing quite a few items. The latter is 100% hand cut as I remember.

I built this 60" version for my Ohlsson 23 from a Klarich short kit. I do not remember if it had extra ribs for building either version wing or not since it has been a while since building it. It would fly very well with a .25 though. It is not lazer cut, but very nice parts cut from good wood.

See, this is exactly why i come here to ask questions. I had no clue there were two versions.
Any chance of anyone having pictures of each type?

The biggest difference between the small and big versions was that the 48 inch center section took more standard W-1 ribs than the 36 inch version. The 36 inch version is now the hottie in SAM, but back when I talked to Chet he said throughout the 1950's the 48 was hottest. The wing areas are slightly different for both A/C and the original plan indicated to simply modify the ribs some if you were building the 36 inch version.

Most all then, were built for FF. not Radio control as now. This A/C was built to be a floater, and not a sky streaker. The .25 ought to work fine in a rescaled format then.

Try Belair in the UK? Well thought of, but I don't know if they do exactly what you want- look on their www.
