Default Giant Christian Eagles

Saw two very large ones in this most current version of the AMA mag and I was wondering if these were kits that could be bought?

FB,
I believe they are the German, Exclusiv Modelbau kits.
Here in the states, Desert Aircraft used to distribute them , but now they are handled by Vogelsang Models in Chapel Hill,NC

Hope this helps,
paul

Beautiful plane...I'm glad the damage wasn't too bad
Looks like the tire might have gotten caught up on the inside of the wheel pant and acted as a brake.

The 50% Eagle is very nice but $$$$$and time to build that kit would take lots of time ! I was going to build that kit till I ran across the Frank Noll 38% Eagle for a 100 cc , its hard to come by good luck! Oh I do have one for sale.

Hi Billy,

Do you know where the builder purchased the canopy from?
