Default Curares etc.

FYI for those thinking of stuffing a hot 10-15cc engine in a .40 size vintage pattern plane - this joint has three sizes of Curare. The .10 looks perfect for a hot .21 or maybe FIRE .35..?

Speaking of which - if anybody looks at this thread - is someone;s German enough to tell me the difference between the two .60 versions?

For next year's project list - Curare .40 mit OPS .60 or .65..? Or Curare .10 with hot .50..? No I don't think so for that one. BSE .35? Maybe.

Voll GFK are the magic words that double the price - GFK = Glas Faser Kunststoff or fibreglass for you and I

Voll means full and a check of the kit contenst reveals the following.

Bausatzinhalt
GFK- Fertigrumpf, GFK- Motorhaube, GFK-Tragfläche einteilig, GFK-Höhenleitwerk, Kabinenverglasung, Kleinteilsatz, Hauptfahrwerk, Bauplan und Stückliste.

Fuselage, Cowl, One Piece Wing and Horizontal Stabilizer are all fibreglass!

I figgered GFK was the German equivalent of FRP or GRP, but I was not sure. The whole schlemiel in molded glass? Lust like Arlo Guthrie said, you can get anything you want - just add money.

Thanks!
