    So are there any kits out there for a 20-55cc Pitts S-1???? I have found a few sets of plans out there that don't look all that part to build but I'm not in the mood to take on making a cowl and canopy. Just wondering that's all.
  2. No kits in that size that I know of. Rick Boyer, whom has the rights to Sheber and Knoll plans, carries
    Andy Sheber 33% Pitts S-1S plans
    Andy Sheber 25% Pitts S-2A plans
    Andy Sheber 33% Pitts S-2A plans
    Frank Knoll 38% Christen Eagle plans
    Direct Connection 30% Ultimate plans
    and http://fiberglassspecialtiesinc.com/ carries cowls, pants, and canopies for all of Ricks plans.
    Rick can be reached by email at, rickboyer1984@gmail.com
    And for a scale tailwheel https://ohiosuperstar.squarespace.com/spring-style-tail-wheels/dsk6q4fbxxnnahzwflfypum30qyx05 in 1/4 scale is the best.
    I have the 1/4 scale on my 1/3 scale Pitts and the 1/3 scale on the 46%'er, they look and work great.

  3. @Pistolera,
    Are you associated with that S1-T? If so could I get a pic of the top hinge line. I am going to redo my cowl and using the hatch lines would simplify it. I only have one pic but it is not a real clear view but close enough if I had one more agree with it.
