Greetings,

With the rising hangar rent, and eventual hopes for retirement, I'm thinking of trading my RV-3B in for another SlingShot. Kolb still seems to have the best folding wing solution, and I prefer the SS to anything else they've made, so it's a shame they stopped making them.

There's no real hurry, and I'd like to find a damaged or neglected airframe to restore as a project. The fuselage cage is what I need the most, since the wings and tail are detailed in the plans. If there were drawings for the fuselage cage, it would be tempting to make that from scratch also, but there are no details for the steel weldments.

If anyone happens to know of a cage laying around, let me know. Extra credit points if it's near East TN Smile

Thanks,
Rusty

Have you talked to Brian at Kolb? Are you sure Kolb wouldn't build you a SS.

Hi Rick,

I didn't specifically ask, but they did confirm that the plans don't show welding details. I have read that they will sometimes produce out of production parts at shop rates, but there were also comments that led me to believe that would be considerably higher than what they used to cost. If that becomes my only option, I'll ask, but I've got time to look around.

Thanks,
Rusty

LOL Probably best not to talk about all the dumb things I've done. It would take up too much bandwidth Smile
