    Why Selling: Mr. DeStefano is a elderly active modeler/flyer but this 1/3 sc. replica is to large to get around for him now.
     
    Willing to Trade: No

    Item Description:

            I am posting this for a good friend of mine Mr. DeStefano who is an active modeller/flyer and in his 80's. He has a passion for scale model aviation and full size alike that has been with him his entire life. A former Piper employee and then retired shop teacher, his building techniques of scale model airplanes is hard to beat. With patience, a pencil in his hand, measuring and straight lines, making it all look so easy and clean. Building in a small shop surrounded by Giant Scale Golden Age biplanes and gliders, all are of museum quality with rib stitch and pinking. His models also have competed in local flying events and all are built to fly with excellent mechanics and results.

           Up for sale is his recently built Balsa USA 1/3 scale "Ercoupe". This is alot of airplane which is hard for him to move around. It was completed a couple of years ago and took 2nd place in civilian scale only to another outstanding model at the WRAM show. The Ercoupe is kit built light, straight and strong for a scale model of this size with alot of 1/64 ply replicating aluminum sheet. Cabin side windows go up and down in tracks with accurate panel lines and rivets. Natural solartex used to cover wings, Doped for tightning, primed and sprayed PPG Arcrilic lacquer. Wing is also a 3 piece. Center section hold mains and outer panels slide on by way of square aluminum tube. Accurate, functional oleo landing gear came with this this exclusive kit which made it an ideal candidate for him. Fiberglass cowling houses a dependable Zenoah G-62 and has been run up in the airplane. Radio gear are high output Hitec/JR analogue servo's all which are new. Ercoupe has been balanced, but will come without reciever or battery pack understandably. Will fit in a Minivan on it's gear with outer panels aside. Amazingly this airplane has never flown. It was only taken out to the field and had it's engine run up. Other circumstances had come up in Mr.DeStefano's life since and is know building and flying 1/4 size or smaller only. Currently a 1/4 sc. IKON N' WEST "Mr. Mulligan" (see pic).

           $3200.00  for this Large 1/3 size model that is a turn key airplane and is ready for flight after reciever and pack are installed. This Ercoupe is as fresh as they come since the day it was completed without any hanger rash. It is being offered for Local pickup, Delivery up to 100 mile radius after payment, or will custom build a shipping container (see pic) with all secured and insured UPS for an additional $400.00 to continental U.S.          Please email with questions. Must sell.      Thankyou

    Hi Alex, this is the rock bottom price... Pete has come down from 4000.00 on a previous sale. If it does not go he will end up keeping it. He is moving... I can send larger format pics that show up much more detail if you would like. Thankyou, Kevin
