Learjet 35 plans on eBay 98"


Anyone tried these plans out? I'm thinking about buying the 98" set.

Who is the designer? Is it the same plans that made this model, just enlarged?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Large-scale-...item460d76111e

I can say with a lot of certainty that looks to be the mark Frankel Lear kit. The fuse and nacelles are fiberglass, not built up balsa as the add would indicate. Also, this plane won't fly on p-20 turbines, those only have 5 lbs of thrust.

My guess is that the seller didn't design, build or fly this design. I'd be cautious.

That was my thought too Sean. I contacted the seller and no response. Wanted to find out who cuts the wing for his plans. I was looking for something to toy with until Mark can get me a kit this summer.

I believe the plans were just enlarged.

Bob Hunt cut my foam cores for the 31A, and I'm sure he has the templates for the 35, but if you want the enlarged size it would cost more because he'd need the plans and have to make new templates.
Btw, when you get your kit I can likely sell you my retracts and struts. They were used. Once.

Are the retracts air or e-tracts?

Might be interested in the struts. Want to go with electric units.

Because of the angles machined into the retract units i'd rather keep the struts with them. When the time comes I'm sure Mark can hook you up with only the struts.
Mark keeps pestering me to build another one...or finish his for him. lol.
