Birdworks RC Gull available again


I closed the deal with Steve from Birdworks. I will be the proud owner of the famous birdworks rc Gull.
From my discussions with Steve it sounds like a full composite version would be better for selling as it is was bit complicated to build the original foam wing if you did not have building experiance. The full composite wing will make this basically an ARF

Please let me know if anybody would be interested in the original or new version of the kit. I should have the molds in a few weeks and will begin straight away with a production run.

Also any feedback about thos plane would be appreciated.

Hi Alex,

I was looking at one of these kits when it came up on the FS forum a while back.

How much will you be selling them for?

Sorry I changed the picture to jpeg
I am not sure about pricing but I would be able to offer it with the polystyrene wings cheaper for those that want to save some money.
What prices would you like to see.

Thanks for the interest I will keep you posted I will also do a step by step production on this tread.

I do this for fun!
I'd be interested in the moulded wings and fuse as a 'save building' and 'save screwing up' option .

What will be the preferred way you would like to see the gull from the molds.
Pained in the mold plain white. Or painted a gey primer in the mold ready to be painted final colours.
Will there be a market for a completely arf version fully molded and painted like the picture?

Hi Alex,

I think it will come down to a question of price, maybe you could offer diffrent levels of kit?
Basic kit with foam wing
Molded kit with pre-Primed parts
Molded kit pre-Painted with pre installed bulkheads (if the model has any)
Molded kit ARF

characters welcome!

I'd bet a lot of people would bite on a moulded ARF depending on the price. Whatever the market will bear is the price.

Thanks for all the interest yes I will try to get the production up and running fast.
A big poop bag will be a definite on the gulls I think that was one of the things i liked the most when i saw the gull the first time.

I will start a list with possable poeple who would be interested.
I will also make a special intro price for the poeple on the list
