Hey ReaperGrim, I know that it was some time already but what were the props you used here?

Hi,
I have two rare and genuine Maratuka kits that I am selling as I have two many models and no time,my motorcycle did 8 miles between annual inspections that is the distance to and from the test center and my house. So that shows you how much time I don't have.
The kits are a Pitts s2 and a Cessna 310Q I am prepared to sell them for 150 for the pitts and 200 for the Cessna and all postage would be at cost. I don't try and make out of the postage like some as I expect as modellers we should treat each other reasonably. If no one is interested I will put them on the auction site, but I thought I would give you guys first shout.

I have a full plan set for the Me-109 if you want to cut your own kit. I seem to have safely hidden the manual from myself though

Always had a special liking for both of those but especially the Pitts.

Greg the way the pound is at the moment it almost is like US $ prices,150 = $187 so not as bad as you think. Due to work and sickness I haven't been able to do anything with the kits so they are still available.

It's the shipping from the UK to the USA that hurts.

If I get a zip code I can check, like I said the pound is not worth sh*t at the minute.

Hello out there in Royal Land. I am thinking about starting a Royal 337 kit. I have been looking at the drawings, and it doesn't show placement of the servos. If anyone out there would have pictures of their placement would be appreciated

Hi, does anyone have the contact information for Royal / Marutaka as they exist today? My last address shows Royal Quality Products 790 W. Tennessee Avenue Denver Colorado 80223. Nobody responds to letters written there but maybe there's a new address? Tx.

===========================================
That is the correct address for Royal's location when they closed. I will be surprised if any one responds. The last time I drove by that building it was occupied by Royal Publications which is another business that Ron Murray was involved in.

As far as I know they have been out of business for probably close to 20 years. That's kind of what this thread is all about. Nostalgia.

Anybody know what happened to their inventory? I've been looking for a replacement servo (pictured) or the gear-set inside, thought a lead to parts might appear on these forums.

I don't recognize the servo in your picture. I problably have some Titans and Mini Titans I would sell for parts. Let me know if that helps.

Thank you sidgates, I bought 6 vintage servos but nothing matches, notice this servo is a 5-wire with the stepper controller on the system board not in the servo. It also uses lateral mounts and output shaft bigger than modern versions today. A real oddball.
