    RE: Is Pica going out of business?

    I live in SE Fla and a couple of months ago I went to the factory ( something I did often) to pick up some plastic for the !/5 Spit I am working on, to my surprise I was told they had relocated to South America. I sent an email through the website I was able to get what I needed. In and email from Monte, he told me Jon ( the General Manager) was in South America setting up the plant.
    I am going to send Monte an email suggesting he get on this website and post a thread letting everyone know whats going on.

    RE: Is Pica going out of business?

    So there is still a possibility that PICA may be going back into business?
    If you love your plane, set it free, if it doesn\'\'t return, you should have checked the battery.

    AN UPDATE!!
    Sent Monte an Email this morning asking how things were going and suggested that he post a thread on this website to stop the rumor mill. He responed with some good news. The company was just sold and normal operations will resume. We should see announcements in the magazines in the near future.

    RE: Is Pica going out of business?

    Hi guys, finished the Corsair and it came out great. With all the BS going on in here, we sure got off the pace. Between building a Top Flite FW 190 and a Pica Corsair, there was no comparison, the pica was a better kit to build. Oil coolers in wings are from a Top Flite kit. Panel lines are of my creation, not to scale or meant to be, just looks. Larry

    RE: Is Pica going out of business?

    Tigertooth, I used 3/4 ounce fiberglass cloth with West Systems epoxy and slow hardner. I sealed that with Krylon primer/sealer. They say not to thin the sealer but I did, but only a very little to get it to spread out better. After sanding with 320 and 400 paper, I painted it with Perfect paint, laid down the decals and 1/16 trim tape (panel lines) then clear coated it with Nelson's dead flat clear. Larry

    PS I found Sheldon's to have pica kits in stock so I ordered a Pica FW 190. Hope it goes together as good as the Corsair.

    I wouldn't count on them coming back unless somebody buys the rights. PICA is done and gone. Check ebay and RCU for kits from now on.

    Hi, I emailed Pica about instructions for a 1/12 scale corsair Monte says can't help me right now, they are moving. Anyone have instructions for a RC30 Corsair kit? I have the cad drawings.

    RE: Is Pica going out of business?

    LarryS, He said they sold the business and the new owners would be in business in the near future. So unless someone else has the instructions for a RC30 kit I might have to wing it which I don't see that happening.

    Just an update, Monte says the new owners will keep the same M.O. and add some new kits. We will have to be patient for a few weeks.

    Tailskid,

    He told me the new company will be opening in the near future. Don't know exactly what that means. They plan on selling the same kits as before and a few more, what those are I don't know. If I hear any more I'll let everyone know.

    I agree with FW190DAVE-- whole heartedly !!!!!!!!!---I`ve been a Union Member for 25 years in this West MI community and believe me the Unions up here UAW have NO power whatsoever--The companies do as they wish or Threaten to move--Maybe the Big Auto Unions can still excert the`re power but, in the small towns the small group Unions are powerless..............--
