The last RTF I got, right before being shown "The Light" by my Uncle Wayne and his battle-hardened PT-19, was a Wen Mac Skyraider.  Like the Airacobra, some six years before, I just KNEW it was gonna be a great flyer simply by all the armament it packed !

As usual, the dream didn't match the reality, and the plane disassembled it's self after a few flying attempts.  Mine was a  throttled version, and I'm pretty sure this squeeze handle is the one that came with it.  Looking now at the line-spacing on this pup, I was pretty-well assured of anything BUT success in flying it, though I did manage to log a lot of taxi time.  

The blue handle is from the Cox ST-3 I got a couple years later.  I was much more successful with that little plane, though I went through it's plastic-peg wheels like potato chips...

My brother just found this is some some of my mom's old papers. The Christmas before Uncle Wayne introduced me to the PT-19. The Skyraider didn't fair well, though I've still got it's three line control handle

In going through the parts bin I came across the top fuselage (only) for a Wen Mac Skyraider. I suppose I need to find the parts to build an entire one or otherwise find someone who needs my part!

These planes go for crazy money on Ebay. Don't know about the parts...though the top of a fuse is a major one.
You might take a shot at selling it there, or post a "For Sale" Ad here.
