SOLD! *SOLD* Walt Musciano Scientific "Red Tiger P-40" kit

Post  steve thornton on Tue Dec 19, 2017 11:55 am

I have an old, old, Scientific Red Tiger CONTROL LINE kit that includes all the hardware, including wheels, pre-bent landing gear wire, bell crank, pushrod, control horn, canopy, cowling, hinging cloth, tissue, and original plans.  It also has notched leading and trailing edges and the plastic canopy is incorporated into the decking for the aft fuse.  There is no balsa stringer material as the plans do not indicate the need for stringers because the sides are solid. Both die cut sheets with ribs and fuse parts are complete, but the bulkheads/firewall are loose and appear to be original. The kit box was opened many years ago but no parts were cut or extracted from the die sheets and assembly was never started. The box is worn but all printing is clear and very nostalgic for us seasoned guys. I'm sure the kit is complete and it is in great condition including the original instruction sheet.
I DO NOT want to list this on the"Bay" and I have no desire to make a pocket full of $$$ but I have to see this kit get into the hands of someone who will hopefully build and fly it.  Hope it finds a real home.
I'm asking $50 PayPal including shipping in the CONUS, (except for MauricioB RC Plane )






Here are the specs:
Walt Musciano designed Control line kit for .020-.075
19" wingspan

Scientific P-40 profile fuse, symmetrical built-up wing. Finished two weeks ago. Done specifically because I did not have a line on the Red Tiger!

Hey, that’s a great looking model. With your skills you deserve the “red line”model. Only and only if something catastrophic happens and you can’t get the pay pal completed, I would like to have 2nd place chance if you decline to purchase. But, I hope you can get it. Thumbs Up

Hey Jim that's a gorgeous P-40!  Yes the kit is complete with all the plastic and it is in perfect shape.  I will be glad to hold it for you but I need to have a time estimate.
Thank you,
Steve

Hey Marley we'll see how it goes with Jim and if it doesn't work out, you have it.
BTW, We are almost neighbors, I live just east of Rochester in Washington TWP.

For Steve,
$$ sent. Thanks a bunch!
For Marleysky,
Since you seem to appreciate Scientific kits:

https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?2754568-Scientific-FW190-DCP-Models-reproduction

I'll let those two threads highlight Dave Cowell's work in producing/keeping these old kits available. He should be reproducing the Profile P-40 above soon. When I come across an old.kit, I send it to him. So far we have worked together on the Scientific Profile P-40, Profile Super Mustang (both feature the symmetrical wing and engine cowl), and the Scientific Bird Dog with box fuselage (I scored the plastics for him). Guess where the Red Tiger is going next...

Hi All,

I wanted to close this thread on an upswing.

Mr. Steve called the day he shipped the kit. We spoke for around 35 minutes, and had a wonderful conversation.

Thanks to Steve Thornton and Dave Cowell, the Red Tiger can fly for YOU TOO! Expect a build log featured in a separate thread shortly.

Dave Cowell likes to communicate via email. He and I have sent a couple hundred Emails back and forth while I purchased kits from him, and moved kits to him for reproduction. We have never talked by phone. It just hasn't been necessary.

Steve shipped it to Dave of DPC Models/AeroWerkes a few days before Christmas. Dave got it shortly after Christmas  and has already digitized the kit.
By digitized, I mean that he has scanned the wood, instructions, box art and decals. Then the wood scans are digitally traced into plots for his laser-cutter. The plastics are used to make bucks that then get used for reproducing more plastics.

Dave emailed me a pre-release copy of his work. The scans look fabulous! I should have a kit in my hands shortly. I firmly believe this kit should be just as great as the Typhoon and FW-190 I got a while back (see above links).

Ok...details:
Dave called this one done and ready for sale. He cuts kits as they are ordered, so expect a short dely between order and production. I've ordered a half-dozen kits over  the last 18 months. Each one arrived within a week to 10 days. They all arrived loosely shrink-wrapped to a sheet of corrugated cardboard with all wood carefully packed, instructions, and cover-sheet of "box-art" visible, and the plastics snuggled into the corner of the package. All this is in another box. Leading and trailing edges are shipped in 1/2 lengths that need to be spliced together in order to keep the box length manageable.
Note that I sometimes just buy a new 36" long stick to beat the splicing part...but that is personal preference.

Dave's reproductions are faithful near-reproductions including a copy of the box art printed on a sheet of paper, laser-cut wood, full-size copy of instructions, and plastics. I say "near-reproductions" because there are some differences. The kit is furnished with rectangle or square stock for leading and trailing edges that need to be shaped and notched, plastics as appropriate (canopy, cowl, and in this instance...turtle-deck), plywood wheels,  bellcrank and control horn, and printed emblems to be glued on and clear-coated.
Things the buyer should be prepared to provide: engine(s), tissue, glue, paint, and basic hardware.
An example of Dave's work is here:

Dave's contact info:
http://dpcmodels.homestead.com
Look for the SRK link/page to find the WWII planes and others. I think you'll find something you like!

And Thanks again to Steve Thornton!
