See PM for another alternative.

Don,

Whatever Dave recommends, do! He was the king of the Super Scepters back in the 80's!

AR,

Don, who started this thread, is the one making molds of classic fuses to preserve them. Assuming the model is considered a classic and he hasn't already made a mold, Don will receive the fuse(s)/kit(s) and reproduce it and usually in return for the "loan" he will provide you with a newly laid up fuse free of charge. It would be helpful to know what are the fuses you have as some of them may have already been done.

You can contact Don directly at rcaiir.com to inquire further.

Don, just lending a hand as I know you're always busy either molding or laying up fuses. Actually I believe that today Don might be in surgery so I wish him all the best.

AR,

tank to Don - he might be willing to do them. I seem to recall though that he's not particularly interested in models under 60 in size. I think the HOB fuse/kit is still somewhat available - at least on auction sites.

thanks Dave Harmon. if they can still make some then easy kill. most guys selling those kits now what 250-300 dollars always trying to make money lol. the big bridi fuselage though is what I really would like and I may end up doing it myself one day but I don't want to mess it up as they are much much harder to find. Thanks all

now i do want to find a EU1A kit. been looking for one of those for a long time.

Thanks David, finally the end of pain is near. Woking everyday will be a pleasure once again when the pain is gone. I just know I'll get three times the stuff done. Looking forward to great growth this coming year! You guys keep those Classics coming in.

Thanks David
Say did you send your parts? I've got you P-8 ready and I'm waiting for those to add to your shipment?
Did you ever get you engine or anything back from that builder?

Don, I need to find a box for the long belly pan. Running wide open with work and doing a kitchen remodel at my house right now. I do anything fun and the wife will scalp me. At least i can watch football while I'm working in my kitchen. It will hit the mail this week.

Nothing was ever retrieved from the 'builder'.

There is a mint condition OK Model - Pilot - SupraFly 25 on eBay right now and ending shortly (an hour or so). I contacted the seller early yesterday about international postage but I've been brick walled and he has only set the auction up for US postage. American kit sellers are really silly about this - when I have asked in the past they seem to believe it would create hassle for them despite it being no extra work than a local posting aside from maybe a customs form that needs filling and with eBay's new global shipping program it's even easier. Maybe if they sell to third worlds that don't speak English there could be some hassle from the buyer's side! Anyway, I digress. I would like to have made coppies of the cowl and canopy. Perhaps by posting this here some enterprising 'merican with a similar love for this model can snap it up and have the requisite molds made.
