I did it, and he said that the original Intimidator was designed by National Balsa and the kits were sold by them, he began to build them with parts bought from them. They went out of the kit business and he made some needed design changes and have been selling built planes with skinned hinges ready to cover for $200.00 plus shipping for several years. There are no full sized plans, the only way to get it is that maybe some builder can have and old unassembled kit, I'm looking for this kit because someone told me that it was a good plane for 424 when using a TT 40 pro, but if there is any other good and new desing that performs better i will change the idea, thanks for yor help.

Ok, thank you very much, some people say that some planes performs better with a TT 40, wich is the one that you use the most in US for 424 with TT 40 pro and have the better performance? another things are the rules, wood fuse and foam wings, no CF wings or Vtail.

Ruben,

Pablo Oliveros had contacted me about Katz Meow kits with sheeted wings. I investigated shipping prices to Venezuela. I found that FedEx and UPS want about $600 for a package that is 48" long and US Postal is around $400 for Global Express. That makes it very expensive to get full lengh sheeted wings. Some people have suggested that the sheeted wings can be cut in half and glued back together, then glassed ... possibly.

Kevin Matney's kits come with 2 piece foam cores I believe. You will have to sheet the wings. He may have a sheeted wing option.

I came up with a design for my sheeted Extreme Wing with the full depth spar that allows it to be cut in half, then rejoined using carbon fiber rods. It still needs to be glued together and glassed in the center section, but it will hold up to the rigors of racing. It fits the HurriKane, the Seeker, and my Smasher as well as others that use the 66-012 airfoil.
