    RE: Royal/Marutaka plans

    I have a Marutaka Staggerwing, Stinson Reliant and a Stuka kit, all pristine.  The Beech will be built as the original fixed u/c racer in red and gold the others I don't know about yet.  I bought them new in Hong Kong in the 90's at Winning Hobbies.
    For all those interested you might try and if you are lucky Winning and Singapore Hobbies had a warehouse (each of them) with a lot of these kits in the 90's when no one was interested
    Just some thouhts for you all

    RE: Royal/Marutaka plans

    About $6.oo at kinkos to copy them or $20 to have them transfer the scan file saved to your flash drive. They will scan the plans and either print them and/or copy the file for you. if you have them scanned it's a good idea to make a scale on the side and top margin using a ruler so when you have them printed in the future you can verify the fidelity of the print and if the printer at the particular shop you are using is off on it's registry calibration they can adjust it manually to print a true scaled print.

    Great score on the Blk Wdw

    RE: Royal/Marutaka plans

    Thanks frets24....now I'm torn between selling the kit or building it I understand the plans are very difficult to obtain, so I thought I would keep a copy 'just in case'.....and inside the rolled plans was another set of drawings....I think I'll copy them also.

    RE: Royal/Marutaka plans

    The NIB collector mindset somewhat eludes me, though I'm not adverse to profiting from it

    I had the BF-109 and FW-190 kits at one time. Copied the plans and the decal sheets in full color, sold the kits for a ridiculous sum and then had the 109 kit cut by a kit cutter with plenty of bucks to spare. The canopies are available after market so everything was good.

    An unbuilt kit just takes up room and has the potential to be damaged with respect to commanding a high collector price. I'd say either build it or sell it right off. If you want do both you can sell it and have it cut or hand cut it yourself and reap the dual benifit as above.

    However you go; It's a classic twin, it will be one of a kind at your field(not just another cookie cutter plane) and I think you'll enjoy it if/when you build and fly it.

    If you do sell it; copy EVERYTHING. All of mine (a P-51 that I built and the 109 & 190) had a small reduced size former/ribs template and some interesting reading material in addition to the 2-3 plansheets and instruction book. What you make on the sale typcally well covers any copying and cutting costs.

    Cheers!

    edit: PS. You can take a hydrocal or plaster cast of any Plastic canopies, cowls, radiators, or accesories and have them vaccu-formed as well if they are not already available. Sometimes the vendors of these items will give you a set of parts as a reward for them being able to add the parts to their inventory.

    RE: Royal/Marutaka plans

    there was a guy last year cutting the Royal kits he was going by royalfarms on e-bay haven't seen him around for a while, I have copied all my Royal kit plans the kinkos printers do a good enough job if you want to build off of the copies but they usually cut a little off the edge so the don't reproduce the plans perfectly

    RE: Royal/Marutaka plans

    I've seen that in the Kinko's copiers at other locations.
    I'm lucky that the one closest to me, 1/4 mile, caters to a large engineering and architectual firm in the near by vicinity so they have a REALLY nice set up for large copies and file saving or manipulation. Apparently the copying and printing facility in the Arch/eng'ng building gets really backed up so a lot of the people there just carry their stuff across the lot to our kinko's...good for the rest of us!

    There was another guy on ebay that had a lot of the plans, canopies and some accesories as well. I think it was US Wings or something like that, but I haven't looked him up in a while either.

    RE: Royal/Marutaka plans

    Hi Tim,
    He's usually pretty busy this time of year working his farm and fields. If you look him up here on RCU at Royallfarms he will usually get back to you. Don't forget the second "l" in his name when looking him up. I do have his email but won't just give it out as a courtesy to him. I will email him and let him know you are looking for him. He sent me a short kit of my Rufe to check out and his work is excellent. He also enlarged all the main and tip float formers to .60 for my buddy who's building a Royal .60 zero into a Rufe.

    Do you still have any of the Royal plans? If your offer of sending plans still applies, and if you have them, I'd really appreciate a copy of the P-38 and the F6F. Thanks. KC
