FA (UK only) Revenge slope racer and Colchester A1 turbine powered Hawk kit

I've just put up another couple of items to auction on eBay as follows :
1. eBay id 250308374169
This is an auction for a "Revenge" fully moulded glassfibre slope
soarer pylon racer, complete with all radio gear tested and ready to run. Included are 2 off Futaba 3004 ball bearing standard servos, 2 off Hitec HS85MG metal geared micro servos, a Hitec HSF04MI+ 5 channel RX inc Xtal (ch66) and an Overlander 800MAh NiCad. All you need to do is program your TX, charge and go fly.
The model has been built on a nothing is too much trouble basis, with refinements like self connecting aileron servo linkages via built in D- Type connectors (see pix of wing centre section and fuselage wing platform). Also note that the RX switch can be accessed through a tiny hole in the fuselage side permitting the canopy to be taped to the fuselage in the car for weather proofing required at this time of year. Aileron servos (HS85MG metal geared micro servos) have shrouded linkages which are ball links at the aileron end for the precision slop-free fit required for those precise racing turns. Two standard servos are connected to the elevators thus permitting a rudder function if your TX has appropriate mixing facilities. Finally the wing is secured to the fuselage with recessed nylon bolts for the ultimate in low drag high speed capability.
The construction of this model is in the finest home-manufactured tradition with a carbon reinforced glassfibre fuselage and carbon reinforced fully moulded glassfibre and foam wings ensuring an accurate reproduction of the RG14 pylon racing airfoil section.
The only thing that could be better on this model is that the tailplane was damaged in a landing. It has been completely repaired, but the underside is cosmetically not perfect. This does not affect the flying qualities of the model, howeer a perfectionist might want to remake this aspect of the model,
With it's RG14 wing section, attention to detail and fully moulded construction this Revenge is a seriously fast model, just the thing for a blast along your local slopes when the seriously heavy weather sets in.
No reserve, and low 25 initial bid for this fabulous thing so bid now and pick up a bargain.
Note that this item is too awkward a shape to be sent via post as I do not have a big enough box. For this reason I strongly suggest the buyer should collect from Brighton, East Sussex f.o.c. Special arrangements could be mde for it to be picked up from Welwyn Gdn City but this would incur a delay. Paypal, cheques, cash or postal order in payment please.
2. eBay id 250308335531
This is an auction for a model Hawk Jet kit imported by Colchester A1 models. In extremely good condition and only just started, the only part of this kit that is not as new is the right wing which has had the covering removed from the wheel well area. The rest is completely untouched. The manual is a little big grubby but complete and fully readable.
This kit is one of the latest variants of this very popular plane to model and, unlike some available is expressly designed to be powered with a gas turbine of around 6 or 7 kg thrust. Wingspan is 1360mm (53.5 inches) and length is 1430mm (56.25 inches).
The kit is complete with a lightweight fibreglass tube to protect the rear fuselage from the heat of the turbine (not supplied). Stainless steel jet pipes (not supplied) are available from Colchester A1 Models at http://www.colchestera1models.co.uk to suit your particular turbine. Colchester have gone out of their way to up-spec this design to suit the demands of turbine use, examples of this include the cast aluminium tailplane joiner and substantial ball link actuator as well as the twin aluminium wing joiner tubes and the seperate shrouded aileron and flap servos and linkages (see pix for all of these).
As you would expect in a model like this provision is made for retracts (not supplied) and the pix show the front gear space as well as the main gear space and well liners. The wheels provided are of a high quality and should perform well.
The canopy and hatch latches are already fitted and so there is really very little to do to complete this kit as the space below the cockpit already has provision for your avionics in the form of a wooden servo tray.
No reserve, and low 50 initial bid for this fabulous kit so bid now and pick up a bargain.
Postage will be 14.26 by standard parcel post or can collect from Brighton, East Sussex f.o.c. Note I am not willing to ship this outside of mainland UK + NI. Paypal, cheques, cash or postal order in payment please.
Thanks for your attention,
