Description* :
I am not selling a model or kit! Only new, full-size copies of the berkeley plans to scratch-build a navion super 260 for yourself.The model shown belongs to terry conley who was kind enough to share with us these great pictures of his marvelous navion 260 rc model he entered at toledo. His magnificent model is not for sale!!!!!!!!!I am selling new, full-size copies of the berkeley kit plans for this 68" span rc model. Terry conley did one tremendous job on his super scale navion super 260 rc that won for him at the annual toledo show. The model has a 68" wing span and would use at least a .45 engine. These plan sheets that he sent me are in pristine condition, as are the copies i have made of them for your enjoyment. Many of the parts patterns are on the plans, such as fuselage formers (bulkheads). But the wing ribs are not shown other than the root rib. So i included a vintage handy hint illustration that shows how we old timers used to scratch build our ribs. We made a plywood or aluminum pattern of the root and the tip ribs. Then we stacked enough sheets of balsa in between them for the number of ribs needed. And, finally, we sanded away to remove the excess balsa. This method works for either identical or for tapered wing ribs. I also include a scale documentation sheet.The silver painted navion is on a pedestal outside the u.S. Army aviation museum at fort rucker, al. I was there in 2007 to see all of the planes i used to fly as a senior army aviator. I'm so old the 26 different ones i flew can only be found hanging way, way up in the ceiling! Too far for my cameras to pick up any usable snapshots! I am not selling a kit, only new, full-size copies of the two plans sheets plus a scale documentation sheet and for the navion super 260 folded in a manila envelope.
