    Dee, r u asking about the plans for the KR2? Or what? TJay not the owner of it i am. Hahahahahaha sure b nice to sell the whole project so damm cheap ud b hard to pass it up, but shipping to u mayb not so great, plus it does need some love, i mayb up for sellin off all the blueprints and plan books,CDs ect but not as cheap cause if someone comes along to buy the project they b S.O.L. without them. Some havent even been opened.  Id sell the whole project for $600 or offer. There that much in brakes, wheels, tires.

    Whatca workin on part 3. Winter 2020
    Ok folks? Whatca workin on beside airplanes this winter?  Well im doing the re-rebuild of the pa12 and have 4 months left till spring mining season is back knocking at the door.  Course u guys know my Dad at 82yrs old had an elevator accident 3 yrs ago and it shattered both his ankles, one into 6 pieces, other into 14 pieces,  so hard to walk for him, and for me well i hate to say i have to take meds everyday to keep my legs and feet usable, they swell up, bruise up Turn black and blue and cant even touch them sometimes without pain, and its headed to my knees and elbows now, So anyways i decided that not only is a towbar an awesome thing to have to hook to 4wheeler or side by side is great. Ive always wanted an electric aircraft tug,  ran across this other day for free, its beatup, scratched up, upolstery ripped, but it works awesome.  So now for some brainstorming to have a seat, tail wheel pickup and lockin arm, 12v air compressor, and a 12v jumpstarter for the planes.

    Well i took the original pair of wings to Crosswind STOL in wasilla and they r pretty much shot and parts only. Hahhaaaaaa So now i have to dig the other set of 12 wings out of the connex and take them down this week. And been tinkering on the fuse when can in evenings, once i get the other set of wings to Charly ill b able to dive deep into this 12 and get it together, think i have most all the stuff i need to assembile.
