Sorry, I did'nt want to wake you up with my mail!!!
I think there's something better to let you wake up than my mails and pics.
Anyway thanks for your compliments about my english. I spoke it along my work life many many times with a lot of different people coming from different parts of the world!!
I enclose some building pics of my unlucky beechcraft.
Bye
fabrizio


I'm just now preparing a very interesting italian pasta with broccoli!!!

Good price and it is including the cockpit kit !
I tried to buy it but this seller won't sell outside of USA.

He must have something against Mustangs because his Curtiss is offered for $300, twice P51's price.

It can't be defined a crash. The model landed smoothly in the river. Tried to let it land in the grass but the cold water generates a depression in the air that sucks down everything. So no pics at the moment. The river took away the model. But some time later somebody found it. The model was damaged, due to the shots on the stones of the river. But I was able to salvage servos , receiver, motors etc.. Maybe it stayed few minutes in the water, then it was stopped by the shallows of the river. Sorry, no pics only some poor remains!!! (sigh!)

It's ORACOVER. In USA is sold by Top Flite as ULTRACOTE. Better than Monokote. More resistant to high temperature. More thick than monokote. Not easy to use anyway especially on curve surfaces. The nose, canopy and nacelles will be painted with original Oracover bicomponent paint same color.

You know...pretty nice work there! It won't win a serious scale competition, perhaps (what do I know, however); well worth the effort! Thanks for the pictures, and keep us updated. Sharing is the key here.

The Corsair kit looks good to build! I think the wood might be fine. This is one to build, and not collect (I know...such a horrible concept to collect). My Royal NIB with cockpit kit is from around 1990, and I have the Rhom rotating pneumatic retracts I bought from Tower at the same time. It isn't for sale; I hope to build it someday (not a collection piece)! But hey, I want to see planes built from these kits. That is my emphasis. I don't think we're about collecting on this thread! - E

Eric are your rhom air retracts new in box? I bought a used set (90 degree rotating) at a swap meet for $30 also came with these struts that have a shock absorbing spring in them.

Yea, sure, there NIB. What's your point? You said you got them for $30! Good for you pal! -E

I was kinda "elbowing" You there, I didn't intend to sound mean spirited! Just to clarify I don't know what they're worth. I do know my home might be worth less than I payed for it! If I can sell my Rhom retracts to solve that problem....you can reach me at..... Ha ha ha! You get the drift.

Captain Blue Sky: I am trying to locate plans for a Royal 40t wing, or at least get the dimensions: Wing span and chord. Can anyone help me?

The royal trainers were only made as Almost Ready to Fly no plans. A buddy of mine might still have his old royal trainer I'll call him.

Thanks, I Fly.  If your buddy knows the wing span and chord, I think I could scratch build a suitable wing.

My royal cessna 310 is a bit of a pain to me right now.
Thanks to Cliff for allowing me to borrow, copoy and scan the plans.
if any one would like a copy of the "scans" private message me your email.

My fuse no matter what I do will not match up on the updated royal plans!
Also seems that I have a different airfoil too! oh well thats the "original first generation royal cessna 310"

The Citation looks terrific! It would have been nice for you to conceil the elevator linkages....but hats off to you. It is a winner in my opinion.
