I'm looking into offering my Gee Bee plans again. Does anyone care?


After many years of absence I thought I might re offer my Gee Bee Z and R2 plans for sale. Not sure about the site rules for selling things... or if anyone would even want plans anymore.

I spent all day yesterday figuring how to get the plans off floppy discs and onto my new computer. I'm just about to send off the Z file to the printer to see how it comes out.

I still have the vac machine and molds for the plastic parts. I no longer have access to a laser cutter so it would be plans and plastic only for now.

Any advice from the members here would be much appreciated as far as what to do next.

Hey stranger - Welcome back! Not a Gee Bee fan myself, but thought I'd say hello to an old friend. Hopefully you'll see a few plans. I know people have been interested in the past. Cheers!
Frank.

There are a number of Gee Bee fans out there. I personally like the Model E and Y Sportsters and am kit bashing an EP Maxford .40 sized ARF "Model E" to a more scale-like "Y" right now. I think that modenized .40 sized models would probably appeal to a number of serious builders.

There are a number of smaller "park flyer" sized semi-scale R and Z series models available now in short kits and ARF's.

Welcome back!

It's hard to know whether or not I would be interested when I don't know the size of the airplane or the type of material from which it is constructed. You might want to supply a few more details and maybe even a photo of the finished product.

Are there any good kit cutters around that would drop ship a parts pack if anyone wanted such a thing to go with a plan? I'm in Canada and most of my sales (in the past) were to US customers. It would make sense to have the parts cut down there and not shipped to me so I could ship them back.

Yes, Frank, I do know how to search, thank you. I was just trying to help Page boost possible sales by having him make his product more visible and irresistible.

1/5 Z. Manzano Laser to cut. Maybe source one in Canada too, so Canuks don't have to pay duty and high shipping costs.

If you're looking for a Canadian cutter, MR (Martin Rousseau) Aerodesign might do it. I bought his short kit for the Vailly 1/5 Typhoon and the cutting and wood quality is excellent, and so was the price.
