Got the 24’ haulmark cleaned out so once road dries up enough to drag it up with my pu ill start taking it apart and store it in there till winter. But still takin my replacement fuselodge to Charlie Centers in Wasilla b4 long to have him check it all over for me in his jig, mayb i b lucky enough to have him c if the jig i have is worthy or not also.
Yea ive done my cryin of course, now im actually excited to start the re-rebuild. Hahhaaaa course that wont b till after mining season, just started moving dirt on the hill yesturday, and there was things i wanted to do different on the 12 when i was doing the fabric, but as its dads plane i didnt do it, he was happy with how it was, soooo now i get to really have some fun updating things on it to make it more user friendly and cleaner lines hope she will b a beautiful bird. Just not sure what colors/stripes this time.
Just to let u guys know, my flyin buddy Brian here is startin to build carbon fiber belly pods for the model 7 kitfox. Sound like the factory will b selling them for him also and welding the tabs on the fuselodges for customers. Things little slow at moment but will b ramping them up im sure. That one of my reasons for building them for model 1-3, as im able to build and help him on the model 7 pod so just a different mold.
mine could b around the $15-18 price if someone wanted it. It flys but will need some love one day cause of fabric is old, Hell i have 2flyin and one more model 1 i can build beside the pa12. That y thinking of parting with the blackfox, put that $ into the re-rebuild of the pa12. Ill b moving into flying it anyways.
I have partialy takin a flaperon apart for a major repair, it was bent in half about middle of flaperon, so had to repair the tube and outer skin, there really isnt that much inside them nicely shaped foam that could b reproduced and the rivit holes have alot to do with the timing/degree of flaperon when backon plane i think. BUT I WOULDNT SUGGEST ANY DISASSEMBILE FOR PAINTING ECT. If u needed them to repair then yes.
Think i have tried that Tj not sure. Hahahaaaaaa When try to post pic it says “there was a problem procesing the uploaded file -200” Looks like i can post pic today but on the for sale not able to do it here again for some reason. Hahahahaaaa
