I just ordered another short kit from LDS and a canopy from Ziroli. I lost my first Turbinator XL a few months ago due to a possible brown out (still not sure of the cause). I probably won't be starting on it for a couple of months. Have to get my wife's health issues manageable and then finish another project.

Finally finished my second Turbinator XXL from LDS. Here it is balanced on the forward wing tube. It came out several pounds lighter than the first.

Thank you verry much Gary!

This is more or less along the lines i thought but your pictures will make it so much easeir for me to do the same. I am currently waiting for a 125 % laser cut kit from Fun- Modellbau in Germany to be delivered to me in Sweden later in december. https://shop.fun-modellbau.de/de/

Kind regards

Bob.
I have ordered an 125% enlarged laser cut kit and they have agreed to make me one. But I have not received anything yet. They will also enlarge the plan for me. I have already built a 100% Turbinator from a laser kit so i do not expect a larger one to be to difficult.

Landing my Turbinator.

Regards

Jannica

Thanks
