Vintage Northeast Aero Sport-Air 40 kit. Kit is in good condition.
One of the best flying planes ever designed. The balsa is high quality and pre-cut. All parts precision machined. Excellent kit, all hand cut! No crushed die-cut balsa here. Will make an excellent electric conversion. Two full-size sheets of plans and an instruction booklet are included, all in good condition.
Some of the parts were loose in the box when I got it. I have examined and counted most of the pieces and compared them to the plans and I am 99 percent sure (not 100 percent) that everything is there. Includes a fuel tank, hinges, and wheel collars. Everything is in new condition except the following: (1) one rib has cracked lengthwise and will require a little bit of CA glue and (2) one sheet of balsa (18 x 4 x 1/4) has about a dozen small dents on one side, obviously where the landing gear have banged up against it. Depending on where the balsa sheet is used in construction, the dented side may not be visible.
The box is o.k., but with tape marks and age-related dings. There is a water stain on the outside top of the box, but absolutely no moisture has penetrated to the inside and there is no water staining or damage to any of the parts.
Take a look at the photos below for the specs. This is a big box and I am willing to split the cost of shipping in the U.S. You can get an estimate of the cost of shipping from www.usps.com from zip code 80525 to your location for the following size and weight: 44 x 9 x 3, weight of about 75 ounces.
