Giovanni,
Rick has changed his policy not to bill until shipped, but I would contact him. His work is amazing from what I have seen.
Peace,
Tom

You might try contacting Caswell on the PE as I thought it had been done & paid for before the proverbial stuff hit the fan & Mike sold off what hull kits he had. That said, David's fitting kit is still listed for sale on the S-D.com site & I know of several builds underway:

Sail interior pieces, masts, antennas, scopes, and foundations.
All the running gear, propellers, dunce-caps, shafts, bearings, bearing bulkhead, universal couplers, dog-bones, wheel-collars, thrust bearings, and Oilite bearings.

The stern control surfaces including the horizontal stabilizers. Sub-driver foundations and strap.

Control surface operating system. These items are machined from stainless, cast from white-metal, and cast from polyurethane resin.


Good luck!

i beleive the PE was used to detail the master, not as part of the kit

Here's some eye candy for those who've been following this project since its inception might be interested in the final product of Rick Palumbo & David Meriman's excellent 1:72 Foxtrot kit.

Its a static model commission completed by Jon Evans. More information on the build can be found on another forum.

The base kit sells for $349 but I just noticed that Rick is offering 20% off on it & the rest of his line through this Friday. David's fitting kit runs $130.
