Default Palmer Plans Parts?

Does anyone make parts for Palmer Plans anymore? More specifically I am seeking cowls and canopy for the 70" A-26. I would really love it if someone had a glass nose in this scale so I could build the "C" model.


Let me know, Thanks Dust

I got Palmer A-26 cowls from fiberglass specialties a bunch of years ago, I guess this means they don't make them any more?

The A-26 is framed up and on the shelf ready for skin, in the I'll-get-back-to-it-someday queue. Would love to make it a C too, but there's a lot of glass up front makes it tough.

Well still no response from Precision. Maybe I'll give then a call tomorrow.

ampeater, How are the cowls? Are they scale? I see so many A-26's being built with cowls that just don't look right. Would love to se some pics.

I think they look good. The chin scoop has a good proportion and the cowl flaps are molded in. I have a 1:48 model I compared them to and think they look good. Tehy're stamped A-26B, I don't know if there's a difference in the B to C cowl.

Here's a couple pics, plus one of the bones. It's been on the shelf for a dozen years now, maybe its a good time to dust it off. Can't remember why I stopped, but it was one of my first scale attempts. I think I stopped to get onto something less complicated when I started trying to figure out how to do the flaps.

Nice!! Thanks so much for posting the pics. It's just what I needed... a little inspiration. I'm thinking of going electric for this one. However if I fail to find parts I may shrink the plans and go for more of a parkflyer.

I'm not sure if they are still around (a quick google search yielded a dead link), but I got a set of cowls for a Palmer Dash 7 from Fibretech and More last fall.

Rick is the guy that was running it. [email protected]

It's worth a try!

Hey SVX if you are still looking for cowls for your A-26 www.fibertechnmore.com has them. I have a set for my A-26 and I'm trying to get a wood kit from Precision Cut Kits. Good luck!
