As in, the Top Flite 1963 - era Taurus? How have you kept yourself from building it???
Yep, I'd be interested. Depends on how much you're asking (these kits, while great in their day, have a tendancy to "weakify" re the balsa, just like ALL balsa kits for that matter that aren't ARFs). Also, there are a couple of companies offering reduced-sized repros of the Taurus. Personally I always thought its size was one of it's assets.
I build a replica of one with a span of 50 inches. Good airplane.
I have a feeling, too, that MOST folks here aren't the living RC fossil I am, and have no IDEA what plane you're talking about unless they Google it, and even then the info is kinda vague.
The Taurus, first presented in kit form in 1963, was a real pioneer in RC models. Those were the days of mostly "flapper" rudder-only actuator flying, though some modelers carried the Taurus much farther than that. It's designed for gas engines, though modern electric powerplanes would fly it better than the original engines EVER could.
The Taurus is NOT what springs to mind when an old-timer is thought of - it's NOT a high-wing, "Playboy" - type plane. Instead, picture a large Pylon racer, Cap 21, or similar plane. The Taurus was essentially the FIRST of this RC plane type, and is widely considered the great-grandaddy of them all! Here's the cover of the issue of Model Airplane News heralding the arrival of the kit:
It's also the first plane to use the strip ailerons we're all so familiar with now.
Since I'm a builder/flyer and not a collector, I'd be getting this bird up pretty quickly - what's your price?
