Does anyone know if there is a kit available for the Vickers Vimy. Balsa or even plastic at this point. If all else fails, maybe you know of plans available. Thanks everyone.

Go to http://www.3seabees.com, they have them there. Just hope you like HUGE planes. I believe the WS on this thing is around 13'. Saw one at my club meeting one time, didn't stop drooling for 3 days. Then I remembered the price tag and dried up quick.

I saw it at Toledo last year... VERY impressive... and HUGE. The level of prefabrication was impressive (as was the price, but not terribly bad considering the size). Check it out.... very cool.

I was actually thinking of a kit with 24" to 60" wingspan.
