My Super Curare. I got it used, and flew it early in my SPA career when "legal" models were not required in Novice. A nice-flying, seemingly indestructable plane I once"cartwheeled" it on an asphalt runway with only minor bruises.

Hrdflite,

Very nicely done indeed and with what appears to be a Rossi in the nose, it should fly as well or better than it looks........... Keep the progress pics coming.

Take care,
David

I built my first Curare in about 1976 or 77 I think. I still have it, flew it a few years ago still flys great with a OS.61fsr.abc tune pipe with mix. control on that big 7D carb. Radio was and still is a Kraft Signature series mode 1

hrdflite - You mentioned in an earlier post that you also offer the Curare (vs the Super Curare?). I have looked at your website and don't see a product listing, prices, etc. Is that available somewhere? I hate to waste your time with an email just to browse and look. I had a QL Curare powered by a piped ST Bluehead but broke it in the early 80's due to radio failure at a contest in Lake Charles, LA. I was never able to find another kit, since HB seemed to be producing only the Super Curare by that time.

Yeah, mine came in today. I keep petting it.
Everything was neatly packed and arrived in good shape. I looked at the picture above but mine must have been in the mail at the time because it's not in the picture.
It's scheduled for a late winter build. Not sure what configuration I'm going to do. If it's as light as the Vertigo is coming out I might as well throw retracts in it just in case.

Rob,
Received my new Curare with the primed in the mold fuselage and it looks GREAT. BTW, great packing job on the curare, very well done and great protection for the parts. I'm a fan of the Quality Line kits. I will post a few pictures of the Curare I just finished as soon as I get an opportunity to get outside and take some pics.
