I've been trying to restore my Big Comanche air plane that's almost done except the rear elevator wing is missing. It's easily lost because it's only held on with one little screw. I bought a pair of wings because the tip was broke off the original so I am thinking of trying to cut one out of the broken wing that is left over. All I need is measurements or even better would be a traced pattern but that's a lot to ask. I've already replaced the wings, motor mount, rubber wheels, freed up the engine that was seized up and a general cleanup. This has been on my to do list for a long time now. I've had it since I was kid back in the 60's. I have pics of what I need except no measurements. Does it seem like this is a doable project? New ones are expensive IF you can even find one. Does anyone have a Big Comanche airplane that they could measure for me? Thanks   Scott

Be patient and ask here regularly. Sometimes things get lost in the daily shuffle. That way everyone sees what you are asking for. Pretty sure someone on here has a spare.

Pictures?

Shame you didn't ask this two weeks ago. I just packed up my Comanche for our move, and most likely won't have access to it again until January.

Thanks Eric for the quick link.

And Scott, I missed your post back in 2015.  Nice collection especially the Curtis Pusher and everyones favorite, the Stuka.  Do you remember if the Cox Mercedes came with the yellow stripe or if it was added later?

Thanks rsv1cox.The yellow stripe was a rubber band holding the suspension together. We were kids that used the cars and planes and loved every minute of them. That's one reason they are so special now. The other is because it's a connection to Mom. RIP     Scott

Not hard to imagine.  The front suspensions were quite fragile.  In fact the whole thing was a better display model than a workable tether car.  That said, I did have some fun with mine as it slowly disintergrated as it went around the track.

About 135 miles east of you. Tomorrow we're putting down earnest money on a new construction house in Broken Arrow.

rsv1cox, I did do a cleanup on the Mercedes since then. The post was called "Mercedes cleanup" back in 2015 as well. I don't know how to put a link up for it or I would. I did end up repairing the front suspension though. No more yellow rubber band!    Scott
