Hi everyone ,
Here is an update on the international kits l was going to have made for you all , l sold the kit to a chap called Phil Davies who comes here , when l did he said he would make a mould from the original kit l had of mikes , ( my dearest of friends ) here was the original mail from Phil Davies ..............

Templates are no problem.I'll save the foam pieces the cores were cut from and that'll give you the sections.
Fuselage will have to wait for cooler weather to take a mould.I've checked fuselage .Considering kit age the fuealage
is incredibly straight .No problem to take a reasonable mould I think .
Wing surfaces and tail plane will be epoxy glass covered .Hard work but a finish to die for.
I think a powerful .65 drinks like a fish when on song ,so I think the tank needs to be bigger than the kit one and there's certainly room.
My first Change I've decided .The flying surfaces can certainly stand the weight .
Servo's in the tail to balance the bigger capacity ( I've never liked long push rods ; much prefer servos in the tail ,and this gives
me room for the air reservoir in the rear of the fuselage for the retracts .
Going to make air retracts myself .Looking forward to making those .I've used air ones before and like to be able to regulate
the speed to sexy slow .I've a small milling machine and lathe ideal for task .
Thanks again .
Regular updates guaranteed with pictures .
I'm sure Mike would approve .
Notice the date of 27th June 2010 ?
l then sent this a few days ago .........................
Hi Phillip ,
Can you let me know what happened to the moulds etc you were going to make me as part of the deal for the kit as l now have lots of people chasing me on rcuniverse for the kit .
then l got this ...........................
Hello Alan ,
I haven,t started to build the kit yet.
Its on my project list.
However your e-mail concerns me in its wording .My offer to make a mould was not part of the monetary deal.Please see the timeline below in your e-mail .My offer after our deal is still good.But in my own time.Please do not say it was conditional cos it wasn't.

l received this not long after that one .....................
I realise now you,re not going to use the mould for yourself but are planning to sell kits from the mould I was going to give you as a friend to make your own kit .That,s not on .
To then say it was part of the deal is just not true.The e-mails below prove that.
I,m well miffed you might contemplate turning a profit from a gift and are now chasing for it.
I,m afraid you,ve lost my good will .

this is the kind of scum that spoils it for everyone , why would l sell a kit if l wanted to build one for myself ????? he was all talk and yes l would have had to charge for the kits but that would have been at cost , well gentlmen there you are , this arsehole has now got my only kit and has renaged on a deal to furnish more for you chaps , l hope l never bump into him , l have a standard capricorn , the silver one in the pictures it'll take some time but l'll do my best from that , so thank you phil davies for being a greedy lowlife you have insulted my dear friend Mike Birch and you have annoyed me beyond belief , watch out for this idiot everyone , sorry it's gone **** up but that's what l get for believing this "mans" bull****
P.S. as far as the Regular updates go after he picked the kit up l never heard from him again until l sent that email !!!
waited two years to email him and he calls that chasing too !!! .......................I am unbeleivably angry , not a good thing , sorry folks
