    new 1982 Pterodactyl Ascender in its original shipping crate. These pics are not of my Ascender as mine was only ever assembled once and I forgot to take photos. It has never had an engine mounted but I have a low hrs Cuyuna engine that would have been in it. This engine has had a slight nip up but would hone and a new set of rings. Also have a single ignition 503 that i was going to put in it. B gearbox. Engine was stripped for inspection after a nose over in my Flea and broken prop. Nothing wrong with it, just needs reassembly Also have a new belt drive Robin 44 that I will list seperately Also have a set of floats that I was going to put on it as I live next to Tuggerah lakes. I'll take photos of these when I get them down out of the garage roof Original sails are in perfect condition but I bought a new set of sails from another RAA member several yrs ago This Ascender has 2 inch dia Ali spars instead of 1 3/4 which means it can carry 2 people. This was done by adding a sidecar to the frame ( strange I know but it worked ) No sidecar with this one. These are still manufactured in the States by DFE ultralight and all parts are available. The ultimate low and slow machine. have a look at a flight on utube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvA62mvIiCo

    Super fine 4 metre lengths of 3/4 x 3/4 Huon Pine easily exceeds aircraft construction requirements. Some smaller sizes as well. I'll drag it all down this week and update what is available. Came from a Tigermoth spar manufacturer in the 90's Impossible to find Huon Pine as good as this anymore. I need the lot gone as I'm closing my workshop. Might be able to assist with moving it. I have my 26 ft enclosed aircraft trailer for sale and if I still have it will be able to move the Pine. Also putting 8ft x 4ft ply sheets up for sale and the same deal will apply James

    All this was in payment for a job I did at Airag Bankstown. The colour is Polar white that I was going to re-tint. The paint has been sitting for some years so I opened a tin, mixed up a cupful and sprayed it. Perfect. The paint is as good as the day it went in the can. Current value of each can is $A300 plus dangerous goods freight of course. 7 cans. Also 7 cans Butyrate thinners ($63 a can ) 2 cans Randofil ( $180 a can ) and 1/2 can of Non Tautening dope. ( Thrown in ) Also a free book on how to use Randolf Products. I'm on the Central Coast of NSW but for the right offer would deliver 500 K's. Not a good photo from my phone. If you want more let me know. James

  13. Bob Cornwell was an exceptional craftsman who worked at Luskintyre in the early 90's. He built a beautiful HM14 replica that i bought off him in 2000. I lost contact with him and went visit him in Weston in the Hunter valley yesterday only to find the house had been sold and was in the process of being restored by the new owner. The new owner said that Bob had died several years previously and that there was still aircraft stuff in the shed so i went a had a look expecting to find a completed HM8 fuse ( conventional 1928 hi wing monoplane designed by Henri Mignet before the Flea craze) W
  14. After many years of struggling with a body that I've badly mistreated ( many incidents and accidents ) Its come time to say that's enough. I had 2 1931 Clancy Skybaby replicas ( which have now gone to HARS ) 1 partially built HM 293 ( which went to Queensland and a beautifully built HM14 ( built by Bob Cornwell at Luskintyre in 1990. Sadly learned of his death today ) This has also gone to HARS. Also dontated a massive amount of old props, instruments and whatever they wanted. Took 3 removal trucks to do it. They didnt want anything postwar nor did they want plywood, 4 metre lenghts of 3/4
  15. As the pilot was doing a full power runup prior to taking off, the engine cut out ( Rotax 912 ) and then burst into flame. The pilot managed to scrambled to safety, and the aircraft was totally consumed by fire. The AT3 was the only one in Australia (Kitplane) It is thought that fuel hose came off.
