R-1 Chambermaid short kit

R-1 Chambermaid short kit

from 35.00

This is a 24" short kit for my new chambermaid design which is basically an updated version of the old Henn plan. This new design has a built in DT arrangement : pop-up stab DT using the stab struts as the DT mechanism. See the DT in action here . The fuselage has been redesigned to have a more scale appearance and the registration numbers etc. have been redrawn for greater accuracy. This plan and kit also offers the builder the option of building either the May 1938 version of the Chambermaid or the Sept 1938 version of the Chambermaid. I have included some extra formers and shown where some formers need to be reshaped slightly by tracing the alternate shape required on the former itself. Kit includes profile pilot and instrument panel plus exhaust parts and a dummy engine assembly.

The basic short kit includes all sheet wood parts including the wing trailing edges and a vacuum formed canopy plus a form for laminating the fin and a dihedral jig. The ply parts include front end formers that accept k&P or gizmo geezer adjustable thrust buttons. The spinner and nose blisters are now rendered in balsa because they look nice and are easier to install and repair.

To simplify ordering I have devised five basic kit purchase options (you can customize your order by filling your cart as needed on the various product pages):

  1. Bare bones - a simple short kit with all items described above excluding the plan (you buy the digital plan here and print it yourself and select your prop if you want one here)

  2. Basic - Short kit, and a single sheet folded printed plan (select your prop if you want one here ).

  3. Basic plus - Short kit, a single sheet folded printed plan and laser cut black tissue decals.
