Default Acquired 3 1970s vintage planes- woot!

Only one has been built and flown, the other 2 have been mostly assembled and primed.

They are all wood, a little plastic on one, and have wood wings, glass-on-wood, and on one, foam.

I have a Jemco AT-6 with the 'GOTCHA' air-racing decals,
a SIG Skybolt bipe (kit RC-34),
and the assembled one is a Midwest "Clipped Wing" taylorcraft aerobatic trainer. Maybe someone needs the engine from it to help fund getting these built and flying.

All are in the 50" wingspan/5lbs/.40-.60 range.

Pics after I shrink 'em to something I can upload.

All 3 come with the original boxes and full-size plans.

Ask me why your DX5e is doomed... and how to fix it.

Is the Skybolt built?. Nice Airplanes but a "Female Dog" to build. Virtual balsa lumberyard. I love to build and have had the idea of building a "Sig" Smith Miniplane and Amping it up. Had one years ago with a Enya 45CX and it flew like a dream. I bet with a little Re-Engineering I could shave a pound or more off it. The old "Die Crunched & Stick built" kits separate the the Men from the Boys.

They are all at the least built to the pount they are essentially ARFs, all the sticks are in place and it is all covered and primed (everything is either skinned with wood or fiberglass).
