Not a Chipmunk fan but I know they're good flyers. Any Rcaiir kit should anyway.

Sure send an email and I can send you our list of kits with info and prices. I set a early purchase price of $695.00 That may change when they are finished. Kits are complete kits.

The pictures you have shown are of a Dons Custom Models Super Chipmunk from the late 70s to early 80s.

Are you reproducing them from the molds ?

They were excellent flyers back in the day. With todays engines and electronics they would only be better !

Please keep me informed as to availability.

Thanks

Doug

Yes, He past away at 50 years of age. He had given it to a mutual friend that gave it to me to make the kits available once again.

A little update for all of you that have pre-ordered kits.
Five molds done, two more ready to spray in the morning. Two more to get done next week. Hoping to complete kit this month.
Carbon gear in the works, decals in the works. Plans are just about done. Cores are cut.

I've got one of Dons Orginial Super Chipmunks ....
I built it up and then sold it, after which the New Owner had a mishap on the first flight..
He had the ailerons hooked up in reverse and didn't preflight with the results as you might expect.
I purchased the remains and did the mainframe repairs but by then Don didn't have any replacement
canopies available. So there it sits in the back of the garage. Needing more work and a paint job.
Along with a new canopy!
Will get in contact about a new canopy and decal sheet this spring maybe.
