Hello,
I have a Top Flite Red Box "ZERO" 60 size kit(circa 1981), Kankge Cap232 Sport ARF (fun fly, bigger wing), and Top Flite Elder 40 w/ OS40 four stroke on it. The Zero is in kit form, never touched, the Cap232 is new in the box, and the Elder has about an hour flight time on the engine/airframe. I would trade any one of these for your kit. Let me know.

Here is the ZERO. If you don't see anything you like let me know, I've got some engines too. Also a couple more 60 size Warbird ARF planes without gear, but assembled.

would be interested in the zero if it was a newer gold edition kit but its not. the elder is not what im looking for. The cap maybe. Hows it fly what's the spec's on it. Does it come with an engine?

The Cap 232 is a good plane for anyone who can fly a trainer all the way up to the wild 3D pilot. I've assembled 3 of them and flown 3 and all were mild to wild depending on the CG and control throws. All of them are really slow landing airplanes due to the thick airfoil and large wing area. The ones I built all had 120 four-strokes on them, which was overkill, but fun nontheless.
Spec:
Span...61"
Wing area...846sq.in.
Length...59"

These planes retail for $250.00, and sell for around $200.00.

Overkill is a good thing sometimes. I have a super sports 40 with a st61 its overkill and fun.
Think im going to pass on your fine offers but i do really do like warbirds. Do you happen to have a 60 size P-47?

Yes there is no gear in it any longer but it's all there flown twice. Nosed over on our rough test field and bruised it's chin, other than that it's new. Comes with a scale exhaust system made for a .91 four-stroke. Sounded neat and exhaust exits in scale location on both sides of fuselage.
