Hi All,

I just got a quote from my vacuum former. The new parts will be pulled from 0.030 Clear Polycarbonate. I have cleaned up the nacelle plugs a bit, since there were some rough spots on them. Because of this the surface finish on the cast plugs is not as smooth as it normally should be for a clear pull, but this should not affect the outside surface which will be covered or painted. These should be durable, and the nacelles can be assembled with epoxy or goop.

Costs are as follows:
- Complete set of Nose and 4 nacelles:US$40.00 plus US$5.00 for shipping in the USA.
- For a single nose, the cost will be US$10.00 plus US$5.00 shipping in the USA.
- For the plans and parts the cost is US$50.00 plus US$5.00 shipping in the USA.

I ship everything USPS priority mail.

I will ship the plugs to my vacuum former tomorrow, and I hope to have new parts within two weeks (~Oct 4th).

Thanks for your patience.

I should have waited. Now, I have to go on where I deviated.

Hi Sam,

I was out of production for a while because I lost access to the vacuum forming plugs. I have since obtained a set of vacuum formed parts and cast a new set of plugs. They are off at a professional vacuum former as I type and I should have the first batch of new parts any day now. Prices are listed above in post #556.

Thanks,

Jim Young

Hey Jim,

Those of us who wanted a set of plastics - how/when can we order them? How should we pay?

Joe - your nose looks great. Keep it up!

I talked with my supplier today, and he is having a small problem with the noses, but he should have them ready to ship to me tomorrow. I hate to give dates, as things have slipped a bit since I first put in the order. You can order parts through my website. I can accept PayPal (instructions on website) or a personal check is fine too.

Thanks,

Jim

Order and payment sent.

No rush. I still need to get my shop set up in the new house. Who knows how long that may take.

Hi All,

I have received the first batch of B-29 plastic parts. They were formed from 0.03 polycarbonate and the nose is really clear and shinny. I am now able to accept and fill orders. PLease form a single file line and proceed in an orderly manner.

Thanks,

Jim Young

Jim, Glad to hear that you got the plastics. Do we need to order here or on your website? By the way, My T&J B-29 won "People's Choice" award at BEST October 4th.

Now I have the complete kit! I just need to set up my shop in the new house so I can build it.

Rush - is that a kid of Sky's Beech in your avatar? That's one kit I wish I had purchased before he unplugged the laser. That - and his V35.

TRP,
Yes, one of Sky's Beech kits. Think I need to update it with my T&J B-29. It's a sweet flying airplane.
