    Heck yeah! I would love to have a 112" Warhawk to go along with my 112" "Stang".
     
  5. The kit will include:

    Primed fiberglass fuselage with center section all in one. Tail section is separate so installation of tail gear is easy.
    Aluminum wing tubes for stab and outer wing panels. (Carbon fiber wing tubes on request)
    Cowl
    canopy
    Exhaust stacks
    belly hatch for easy access to rc equipment
    Foam core wings and stabs (wood for built up on request)
    Wood for ailerons, elevator and rudder
    Balsa wood blocks for wing tips
    Flaps

    Optional: robart retracts air or electric can be ordered with kit if required.

    Kit price as above US$2500 with foam core wings and stabs, not including carbon fiber parts or retracts.
    Made to order only. Shipping not included.

    It is completely likely I will order one. However, I am not much of a foam core wing guy. I would need a price for the build up wings. Shipping cost would also be appreciated. (83642)
    And, I would really like to see the quality of a prototype or already assembled airframe. Detail, construction and the like. The more info I have will make the twisted arm behind my back not hurt so much.
     
  7. I will make a few fuselages for customers, and I will post the picture here. Basically it will look just like this in the picture below showing panel lines and rivets. If you want you can email me with your details and I can send you a quote on shipping cost and wood for built up wings. Also I will build one for a customer ready to be painted and will also upload pictures here and on my website. Although this might take a while due to other projects.

    Ok, this I like. So what cost deffriniation would there be for foam core vs. build up? Also, you mention pneumatic or electric gear by Robart. Will any other manufacturers compliment the gear fitment? Or would modifications need to be preformed?
     
  9. Foam core or wood same price. Whatever you prefer I will supply. The wood, would be only ribs for outer wing, elevator, rudder, and horizontal stab. As for retracts, century, sierra or Likes Line could have something suitable. I am using Robart because they have the gear already available for this size airplane. Sierra might be able to use what they have and make minor modifications.

    That all sounds fantastic. Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. There was one other question that I had if you don't mind. What do you feel the anticipated all up weight will be?
