1/3 KA3 needs a new pair of wings......
« on: September 14, 2012, 10:22:51 AM »
towed my KA3, flew as usual completely perfect, the landing is lost contact with the plane, nice glide ratio as it is in the plane, flew all our major fields in the two trees .... So if you read this Fred. can you make new ribs and couples in backends

OOppsss!!

No problem Conny, I have a few spare parts lying around.
Can you list me what you need? And I'll have a look (Should have them all anyway, so no worries)

Hey Conny,

Good to hear from you  :) I just saw your PM, I reply back now, but in a nutshell, I have to check what I have left!
That bring us back  ;)

HEHE

it was a while since the model met the mother earth , many times thought about throwing it away . I like that glider too much and want it restored

Hi Conny,

So, following our chat, here you go.
In black, the "old", in red, the new.
This is the fit on the fuselage.
Looks do-able to me with a bit of fiddling, but not too much.

What do you think?

So... After ten years and many rounds about this model. It had his way to the junk yard, but it was sold to a friend, then after 8 year I'll toke it back and put in a sleep. so now after a mounth work it ready to fly.... feels so good.
