    Item Description:

    Up for your consideration is a brand new in box, Morris Hobbies "Balsa Nova" 1.20 ARF.   I purchased this several years ago directly from Morris Hobbies when they were closing their doors for business.  I never got around to assembling it, but just recently lucked into a completely RTF version of this plane, and while I would like to keep this ARF in the box as a spare, I really would like to convert the one that is RTF to electric, and the funds from this sale will go a long way towards doing that.   BTW, this plane flies great.  Even I can knife edge it!

    When taking the pictures, I decided to do an inventory of all the components.  Much to my chagrin, the cowl and instruction manual were missing.  I do have a copy of the manual that I downloaded and will provide, and the cowl is available from Fiberglass Specialties.   There is also a stain on the top of the box due to whatever plane I had stored above it, but the contents of the box are pristine, and of course, you don't fly the box!

    Normally I would offer shipping as an option for this type of item, but due to the extremely large size of the box it comes in and the fact that it would need to be double boxed to ship safely, I am offering this item for local pickup only in the Englishtown NJ (07726) area.  I would be willing to meet a buyer somewhere at some reasonable distance away from here for pre-arranged and paid for round trip gas and tolls.  I do occasionally drive up to Boston to visit my son.  If you are somewhere between Englishtown, NJ and Boston Mass., we might be able to work something out there too.

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and if you have ideas on shipping I would be willing to consider.

    Please see the ad for price and condition. At the present time I am looking for a local buyer, as this is a very large item, difficult to ship.

    Thank you for you interest.

    The cowl is made from balsa blocks included in the kit. It is not missing. I just recently built this kit. Flys great.

    That might be the case for the kit, but the ARF has a finished fiberglass cowl.

    If the missing cowl is a deal breaker for anyone, I can provide the one that I have on my already built version of this ARF. It is cut for a thunder tiger 1.2 2-stroke, but since the motor is mounted inverted, most of the holes should be close to where you would need them without having to do too much extra cutting.
