Anyone have plans availible for the baron. I would love to model my 55 and will bash a TF kit if I have to.

I've tried to get in touch of teamscalepilot and seem to be having PM problems.

Hey Teamscale,

I've tried to PM you but haven't had much luck. Not sure why.
If you haven't sold it I'd love to have it. Been wanting to model my BE55


If you still have it, put my name on it and PM me.

Don't anyone think I got the last one!

Seems Dave was mistaken about having one in his attic. Didn't find out I guess till he got back from Joe Nall.

Had to return my payment in full. What a bummer. I have a set of plans. Does anyone have a cutter they would recommend, or a cutter that already has the files.

Do you remember who cut the kits Dave?

Disappointed all-around,

Les

kit cutters did the kits for us.

kit cutters no longer cuts kits.

Did you guys provide them with files to cut from, and if so are they available. Otherwise I guess I pay someone to scan and convert the plans I have or cut it all by hand.

Also the thread indicates you were going to let fiberglass specialties have the molds. Did that happen or am I on my own there as well?

I'm not about to put this project on the board as I have just finished a one year project and need a break and to regroup, but would like to model the 55 in the future.

Sorry to bring up an old thread but does anyone have a set of plans that teamscalepilot drew up? I have tried getting ahold of him with no answer. All I need are the plans. Thanks

Laser Design Services has a short kit for the Bud Caddell Beechcraft A36 Bonanza. I have his short kit. Bob will provide printed plans for $25 or you can download them for free and print them yourself. Bud used it as the bases for his Baron. I have attached an article on the Caddell Baron, sorry I don't possess the actual plan.
I can also tell you Plane Gone By has a retro kit of the Top Flite Gold Edition kit in the works but it probably won't be available late this year at the earliest. He is currently tied up on the

I should add there is a great technique for adding the indentations/channels to the control surfaces in the TF manual for the Arrow II. The technique is to cut slots and then adding thin balsa to the backside. Unlike routing grooves you have no worries about going to deep.
