    Man they r lots of work when doing a rebuild, but u know its not rocket science, it sure worth it when u get her done, urs is in good shape u should keep on it and not give up, i went thro the pissed off, tired, bumbed out mode with both of mine,  and Leni talked me out of that and kept me going on it.  And im SURE glad i did continue!!!  Its damm well worth it, and u know what u have when ur all done.  
    Dont give up!!!!

    Well trailer was done b4 i loaded up the blackfox, and OPPS i must have added all the measurements together instead of splittin them to fit both planes.  So back it in shop and loaded/unloaded it probably 4-5 times to get it where i thought was right to fit both planes.  Got the sissor  jack pins done and cabled, And had the wife make me a few nice tiedown loops.

    Ahhh i c, was pretty sure u had told me that b4 but couldnt remember.  The round/bump cowl is nice but hard to c around. Ill bet they kept it cause there more room under cowl for motor accesories and odd but think same kind of story happened with Luscome? for the radial motor, and they built a bump cowl to accomidate it.  Anyways they smoother cowl is sure nicer that y didnt bother me to do a 4” extended gear leg along with wider

    Sounds to me u b better off getting a complete KF 4 wing kit.  And a guy mayb able to get some $ from the model 2 wings. There was a guy in Wyoming had a new never assembiled KF4 wing kit for sale,  i brainstormed it to mod them to fit this model 1, but was more work than i wanted to do, and im more than happy with the undercamber wing for the flying i want to do.

    Thanks for the info, but i already did one of those for it. It pins to the trailer and to the rear pin hole in fuselodge for the factory towbar, and the winch pins on/off also to store in toolbox.
