I have built two of these from Jan Hermkens plans. The first was scratch built and flew great! This one was cut as a short kit. I veered from the original plans and added wing tubes for the main spar and two wing tubes for the elevator to make them removable. It was covered in coverite but can be removed if you prefer to glass it. It has Robart landing gear and four OS 95 four stroke engines. The cowls are from fiberglass specialty's and so is the top deck, tail cone and chin turret. any questions call me 574 249 8359 I can answer your questions. This is a new build and I have not flown it because i was deciding on electric or fuel but the cowls are cut for the os engines. I am asking 2000 w/o engines and 3000 with engines, three of the engines have not been ran yet. Sorry way too big to ship. Pick up only no trades. I am thinning the hanger.
