    Hi Ace,

    wonderful EAGLE - is it the same like the red EAGLES fly it ? We are also working on a TL-EAGLE with a single canopy
    carbon-fibre sandwich ribs, complete carbon panels as one part for sides, bottom and in the End 100-120 pounds lighter than
    a standard EAGLE.... I was at Brooks Lemons last year and got a original basic part out of the ORIGINAL "old" mould
    from Christen Industries - for the EAGLE I for the EAGLES Team...

    regards

    Thomas

  3. Thomas,

    The fuselage was built in the original eagle jig. The wings are of Steve Wolf's design and the tail has Steve's touch as well. It is my understanding that the only four left from the jig are the three flown by the eagles, hanging in the museum, and this one.

    Hi Thomas thanks for the reply. I've been searching for an Eagle project for some time now but they are hard to find! If you bring to market the full size as a home build accepted by Austro Control then I am definitely interested, as well as the 50% of course. Such a shame that the kit from Aviat now retails for about the same price as a nice used Extra!
    Best of luck and keep me advised. Great work.
    Cheers, Mark

  6. If I read this thread correctly, this will eventually be a kit that is available for purchase? Is that correct?

    They're developing two full scale Eagle kits (single and two place) as well as a half sized fully scale model.

    Allow me to say wow for you, Wow! lol

    Mike,

    yes - we are developping the CHRISTEN EAGLE exclusiv kit in 50% size and working hard on it for
    the perfect kit ( like Frank Christensen does in the early 70´s )
    It is just a "Little" more work as expected to get a perfect result for all Details to have it for the
    Serial production - so hold on we are coming !!

    best regards

    Thomas
