-- 56" wingspan
-- 39" length
-- .60 power (Fox Eagle 60 shown on plans)
For anyone who is not familiar with Henry Haffke, he is know as "Mr. Gee Bee" and written some of the best books about the type. A lot of his research is from people like Pete Miller, the original designer, and the Granville family. This is a very accurate plane, with the accuracy approved my Pete Miller and Robert Granville.
-- Flying Models plans (CF-497A). The plans show the R-1, R-2, and stretched R-1/2. One wing is missing from the plans, but this does not affect the build. It is the same as his kits, and MAN plans. The spars are supported and ribs slide along the spar into position. This means you can build one right-side-up and the other upside-down over the same drawing. I tried to get another set of plans from Flying Models, but they never arrived.
-- Fibreglass wheel pants/landing gear fairings (with panel line detail), and cowl.
-- Vacu-formed canopy
-- Fuselage is mostly built (as R-1/2). This was built on an included jig, visible in the pictures. The belly of the plane is still left to complete.
-- Wing is mostly complete. When finished it will be one-piece, but it is not joined yet. One of the joiners is damaged, but it's an easy repair. One panel has bottom sheeting on. Ailerons are finished, but separate from the wing.
-- Stabilizer is not started.
I have run out of building time with work commitments and kids. fibreglass, vac-form, and plans are probably worth the asking price if you could find them.
I'm not going to attempt to ship this -- I can't see that ending well! Lower mainland BC buyers, or I will be in Kelowna soon as well.
