I have decided to put one more plane up on the auction block. My last item will be a GWS Slow Stick with LED lights for evening flying. It also includes a Hobbyzone 3 channel transmitter, receiver, and speed control. This plane is ready to fly, minus a battery. The lights are very bright, but I haven't tested them in a flight yet. I know that it lights up my entire garage when it's dark! Sorry guys, I have no pictures of this one- though I may try to upload a few when I get home today.

Hello Gentlemen!
We've been working hard sorting and packaging the collection of a local modeler who passed away last fall. His shop was practically a hardware store of specialty items as well as more NEW Balsa, Spruce, Aircraft & Lite Ply than most stores carry. The wood has been bundled into (4) Builder Wood Packages of about 100 pieces each. The Lite Ply ranges from 1/8 to 1/4'' thickness and is 12'' x 48''. The Aircraft ply ranges from 1/16 to 5/8'' thick by 12'' wide and 24'' long. I'll get some pictures next time.

We've packaged a lot of the RC hardware (hinges, heat guns, DuBro hardware and stuff) into boxes that will be sold at a table in the back of the auction. The boxes will be fixed price and are worth at least twice the price. The funds earned are returned to the Family.

Here are the images of the Builder's Wood Supplies being auctioned Feb. 12th.

Here's another item I'll be selling this weekend.
It's a .25 size Tiger Moth ARF Kit NIB. It is very nicely covered with Oracover and looks terrific!

The Specs Are:
Wing Span: 51 inches
Weight: 4-1/2 to 5 lbs
Engine Size: .25 to .32 (2) Stroke or .26 to .40 (4) Stroke
Would make an excellent ELECTRIC Conversion!

Can a seller have a starting price, or a reserve, or do all bids start at a penny?

A seller can not have a minimum price. However you CAN bid on your own product to get the price up. However, if you have the highest bid, you still need to pay the 10% commission.

So if you had something that you really wated $200 for and the bidding stalled at $90, you can bid $100. to keep the bidding going, but if $100 is the final bid, you bought it from yourself - and you'll pay $10 to TCRC

So you lost 10 bucks, but you didn't lose your plane

Bought all 3 recently, along with several others, from a man who loved flying the orange and blue beast especially.  It took a nose dive due to a radio glitch and needs some rebuilding, but not much.  It's covered in fabric - probably Coverite - and appears to be pretty tough.  He flew it with the Alpina gas motor.

He also flew the smoke-equipped "Hell Hog" but never completed the smoke installation after installing plumbing for it.

The blue biplane is a never-completed project which doesn't need much more work.  That's about all I know about it.

I'll be happy to email or post additional photos, and answer questions as best I can.

These are .60 sized but are on a .46 sized GP cub...
It is glassed (very strong) and ready for paint....
They were ran 10-20 times painted TF Alum. but I wanted to smooth out the fiberglass job...

I would sell both the plane and floats together, but not sure if I want to sell it now, because it is unfinished ,and would fetch
double the price when I get done with it!.....

What would I get for this combo (minus engine) but with servos...
