Mike,


If you want a set send $10.00 to my paypal ([email protected]) or mail to Mike Krug,
I'll make it $25.00 to support Airmail costs.

For any Aussies out there, they ARE coming here, and price will be pretty good (similar to U.S. hopefully). I've pre-ordered one, and also Robarts, OS70's, wheels, etc. Now just need a couple of servos(!), batts, switches, etc etc.....[X(]:) Local hobby shop's gonna LUUURV this one.

Has anyone weathered that matt Monokote? I'd like to do a little bit of detailing/weathering without going overboard on this one, but wary of doing much if it will need re-shrinking occasionally.

Hi Ken.

Sorry about the delay because of the decals. More decals will be arriving next week (maybe even this week yet?). Then the decals will get inserted into the kits we already have in stock here in the states and finally begin shipping again.

Don't sweat it Ken. I just wanted to give you the latest, up-to-date info. Hey, toys get me worked up too (I don't consider my self an "old guy," but at 44-years-old, I guess I am!). [sm=punching.gif]

thanks I cant draw alick but models is something different. I built an 8 foot Titanic for the titanic historical society. It has been featured on the history channel . I do these when i need airplane money. The bismarck hasnt been spoken for its static only. I built a 4 foot wood model odf the wasa that is also at the titanic hist soc museum.



im still trying to find panoramic views of the bay

krypton i see you cut the cowls. im running 2 4s 5000mah in series so 8s 5000mah. batts are through the bomb bay hatch.I hope two batts will run both escs and motors. They are rated up to 8s so we will see. im very impressed. it would make a fine kit too bad you dont offer it as a kit!




hey im 47 and not old

Hello Tim, (Krypton).
Landing with gear doors open?

Well the countdown is on! the other old man (myself 45) will maiden the B-25 on saturday if all goes well, I'm if assembly stage, all is wired and the main iier wings installed wiring this birsd is like a house, only the wires weigh nearly a pound!

I Know it is late and I start to freak out but how does it behave when the main gears door are opened, (those must cause major drag, like 2 stopping parachute behind the space shuttle!) I understand why on the full scale the doors woul close back after the gear was lowered.

It is possible with a pneumatic sequencer to open doors deploy the gear, close door. then open door , retract the gears and close door. that implys installing dual small cylinders behind the doors near the rear and change the robart air valve for a UP2 sequencer valve... for those interested the link is below and available in "Canada" at Ultra precision, and the valve would be the UP2. They also supply small air cilinders (7/16) diameter for a better scale look.

Web site is http://www.up-1.com/uptwo.html

Enough weight in my case and I hope it flys well as it is. But I know I'll end up installing the sequencer this winter

BTW Mike the levers are A1, I sent you a message with my adress and I'm arranging a fed-ex p/u you are a great help.

Also about the doors, I found that J.B. Weld is the better glue to use.

Good night.

i plan on using a jomar sequencer to scale out the gear doors. I know im crazy but hey its therapy. those 5/16 air cylinders are too thick. i know the jet guys make thinner ones made only for doors. look under EMS JOMAR
