Sold !!! for Postage: Carl Goldberg "Electra" Sailplane Kit

Post  Kim on Wed Dec 25, 2013 8:37 am

Opened and Messed-With Carl Goldberg Electra Kit

I wanted to see if this might be worth postage to one of you guys.  It's a Goldberg Electra Kit that was given to me 'bout a decade ago.  I had a friend who started up with a lot of fire and passion, but burned out once he saw the labor involved in turning these sticks into an airplane.  He gave me the kit and I stuck it in the rafters of my storage shed.

I THINK it's complete, though some parts are knocked out of their sheets and the tail feathers have been framed up.  Plans and booklet are also there, and in good shape.

If someone thinks they might like to have it for postage, PM me and I'll inventory the mess and spread it out on a hangar floor for some pictures.  I'm determined to make a dent in my packed storage shed, and would also like for this kit not to become mouse bedding!

Kim
I'd be interested in kits if you selling some. I haven't yet come to grip with my hoarding problem.  And if you were ever over here, you'd be welcome at my house for any meal.

Time to start cooking!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rudolph Santa

Thanks Duke, I'll keep you in the loop !

And if I lived closer, I'd certainly take you up on the dinner---as much for the company as the food !!

Luckily for me, I've got a bunch of great friends around here also, who make it their business to "adopt" me at the appropriate times, so I often spend my Christmas Day hopping form one little celebration to another !!

Now, figure I might ought to shower and shave...all the better to enhance the Mooching Experience !!

Merry Christmas all You Great People....and now AWAY!!!...Donner, Clyde, George, Ralph, and Henry !!!!!!!

MOVING SALE!!!

Post  JPvelo on Fri Jul 18, 2014 10:06 pm

So I'm moving and the Goldberg Electra Kim sold me for postage hasn't been touched since I first opened the box. I want to pass it along the same way I received it: pay the shipping and it's yours for nothing more than the price of postage!!!

The moving in July in Phoenix really sucks Jim!

About a mile down the street lol! 

My girlfriend and I have been discussing engagement and moving in together and were planning on November when my lease is up.  Mid June she got notice that her landlord was selling so we are going ahead and doing it now. I'm excited to be moving forward with her and excited to be moving into a bigger place!

Hey Jim, although it's tough moving in the heat; once you're both settled-in together; you'll be saving a lot of money and time too. Just having "one" rent and utility expense, will save the two of you hundreds of dollars a month.. if not more. This will help when it comes time to buy the "sparkly" thing...  Wink 

Congratulations to you both!

Thanks guys,
We recently drove to Montana, 2300 miles round trip, 42 hours in the car over six days and not a single argument. If she's not "the one" then the one might not exist.

Back to the subject at hand:
This lovely Goldberg Electra sailplane kit can be yours for the price of postage!



Send me a pm.
