I am trying to get the screen name for Don Carlson, in California. He has been making molds for the classic pattern planes. I am trying to send him some business.

Don's screen name is listed first followed by his email address.
I have found that emailing Don is the fastest and easiest way to get in touch. He usually responds very quickly.
He is a good guy to work with. I have bought kits from him as well as sending him kits for replication.

Has any one been in contact with this guy? I am afraid I have been Scammed. I ordered and paid for a 33% 7 AC Champ kit from him over a year ago. He promised it last November 2022. Its been over a year sense I paid and ordered it. Most of the posts here and other sites, say he is in California. I have an address for him in Grand Junction Colorado. Googled earth his address and there is nothing there but a small cabin. A very remote location. The local R C club and local hobby shop has never Hurd of him. He posts as Frequent Flier on this web site I ordered the kit under RCAiir.

Don is just now recovering from some serious health issues. He hopes to be caught up with back orders by year end.
Send him an email to get an update on your order.

Thank you yes I finally got a reaction from him, after another E Mail. Really gotten disappointed in his medical so called condition. I had order this before all this medical stuff surfaced. Promised me I would have my order in November of 2022. Never happened. A year later all this. Really don't know what to.beleave. all of this is very confusing why take on orders when you know your sick first heart condition then. A failed hip replacement with infection that could have killed him. that takes months in some cases years to get over and he is already doing things less than a month later after the surgery some thing aint right. AJ.

I originally bought the RCM plans 33% but missed out on the windshield and fiberglass cowl that was offered. I Hurd about Don and many guys were very disappointed in the way he did business. I asked if he would sell me his scale windshield and cowl. He said no. Because of so many people copy his design. Then he said he had a kit for 650 on a 7 AC scale gear was extra. I thought about it. Sent him an unsigned check. By mistake. He called me and told me about the uncompleted check. And said my kit was ready to ship. I sent another check but nothing happened. I contacted him to see if it shipped. He said no , but by Nov 22 I would have it. No problem. That was two more months away. I said okay. Nothing happened. Then in December he claims he sent a message that the kit was ready but got no response from me. I said sent the kit. But nothing. You can see why I am so upset about all this. Nothing makes sense. I finally ordered a windshield and cowl from pro builder. Haven't started my 33 %. But plan too this winter. I fly a AA Industrues Nolsen design 1/4,scale now. Guess I need to be happy with it. Really disappointed in all.this I put out alot of money on this 33% Champ buying the engine and all and nothing to show for it.AJ.
