Actually, Tower Hobbies carries a couple of hundred different kits,
including some Tower Hobbies brand kits. You can find kits from Great
Planes (naturally), SIG, Lanier, Midwest Products Co., Top Flight, Carl
Goldberg, and House of Balsa all at Tower Hobbies.

Love Tower or hate Tower, they aren't the Anti-Christ of the R/C airplane
hobby. Even kit builders might find something to their liking at

Yeah, but we don't spin tall yarns about being ex-Navy pilots and making
ourselves look foolish (for the most part, that is :-)).

I think we are still safe in that regard.

Akimoto is a young dude, judging by his lack of regard for others and his
classism.

I was hoping you got the sarcasm Ed I appreciate help from people with
experience. This was meant as a jab at Mrs Akimoto.

What I meant by that is even if you can't find something you like at Tower,
that doesn't mean there aren't other sources a little off the beaten path.

I'm kidding you. But I did read it wrong, so to speak.

Re: RCM Plans Service still operating or has everything shut down.



I ordered 4 plans from RCM on October 5 and received them on the 24th --
all were the newer blackline prints, not the older blueline. RCM has been
running a 4 for 3 promotion -- order at least 4 plans the get the least
expensive plan for free. Although the promotion was to have expired in
August, I ordered by phone and asked if it were still being honored -- at
the time, it was, but you must ask for it. So, I ordered 4 and paid for 3.

I also ordered 4 for 3 in October with delivery to Canada about 16 days later in early November ...now building "Stubby" from a Sig Seniorita kit ...

..they sure have built up a valuable library of plans over 40 years..

I ordered a set of plans at the end of November of last year and still have not seen them. January is almost over. I finally got hold of some woman over there after attempting to call for over two weeks multiple times a day. than on the 8th 9th and 10th I called every hour and finally got a pickup. The woman was shocked that the plans were not sent yet and that she will send them out the same day. Well that was on the 10th, it is now the 22nd and still no plans. They are in business alright, they'l take your money but not send you anything in return. I used to order a lot from them and had the plans in a week or so. Yes they are around but must be going under bigtime.
