I have a NIB Yellow Aircraft kit of the twin F-18 that I would like to sell. This kit is the older design with the two-piece green polyester fuselage. Included are also a new set of retracts, struts, brakes, wheels and tires. This is a very large and impressive kit that could be the basis for a very attractive model.
Length: 98 inches Wigspan: 72 inches
Originally designed for a pair of Dynamax gas ducted fan units, this kit would be an ideal candidate for a pair of 100 to 120mm edf units. The fuselage and fiberglass parts appear to be polyester resin and are in very good shape. The fuselage has some very slight and easily repairable cracks as seen in the photos.
Included with the kit are the following:
- Fiberglass fuselage (2 pieces) - Fiberglass hatches and canopy frame - Fiberglass inlets and exhaust ducts - Fiberglass arresting hook - Clear plastic canopy - Sheeted foam wing cores - Sheeted foam stabilizer cores - Sheeted foam fin cores - Plywood formers and pieces - Harware for removable wings - Stabilator hardware, etc. - Extra set of aluminum spars if you would like to make fins removable - Folded plans and isometric drawings - Large instruction book - Two sets of decals
If you were to purchase the current version of this kit with the retracts, wheels, brakes and decals it would cost approximately $2,600 plus shipping. More details can be found here -> http://www.yellowaircraft.com/jets/f18t.htm Please be aware that the current version of the kit has been significantly changed since the earlier versions of the kit to accommodate the use of turbines. Appropriate modifications may be required to this kit depending on what you intend on powering the airframe with.
I would like $1,800 shipped within the continental Unites States. I checked on FedEx.com and shipping for the two boxes averages about $100 for anywhere in the continental U.S. ($130 to CA, and $87 to Chicago). Shipping will be via FedEx Ground (fully insured). This will ship in two boxes measuring the following:
Box #1: 13 x 19 x 61 inches, 18 pounds Box #2: 26 x 28 x 9 inches, 25 pounds
I will accept official checks, money orders and PayPal. If paying with PayPal, 3% will be added to cover the PayPal processing fees.
