Primary Force short kit
« on: March 24, 2015, 11:08:28 AM »
Hi Guy's,
The release of the P Force short kits is mid April.  Eric from RSM has agreed to cut these for me with the proper weight and quality of wood.  These will be sold on a first come first shipped biases.  Send a check or money order to the address listed below.  Price is $79.99 plus shipping (about $10.00 US orders) depending on where you live.  The first run of kits (this run) will be 10 so send your order in early.

Thank for all your words of encouragement on this project,

Mikey


Hi Guy's,
The kits from Eric arrived and look great!!!  I still have to check each one of them to make sure they are all as good as the first four I checked.  Awesome!!!! Wood and laser cutting (thanks Eric).

The updates plans are about ready along with the instruction book.  Should start shipping sometime next week.  If you need a list for the additional items (balsa & hardware) email me and I will forward it to you.

Mikey

Hi Guy's,
The short kits are ready for shipping and will go out Monday.  Because of the great response for the P Force, I'm gong to order the next run of 10 kits.  The first four of the next run are already sold.  So if you want one of these drop me a note and check/mo to confirm your order.
Again, thanks for all your support,
Mikey

Hi Guy's again,
The third run of short P Force kits have been shipped out.  If you want tracking numbers, send me an email and I'll respond ASAP.  This has been really fun thing to do so please send me photos of your completed models and I will post them here.

Later,
Mikey

Hi Guy's & Gals,
Because of your outstanding support and helpful suggestions, I've ordered the fifth run of Primary Force short kits that should arrive just in time for Thanksgiving.   So you won't have to sit on the couch and watch all the football games (LOL).   Like always please send photos of your completed model so they can be shared on this forum.  Also, the building season is here and time to start building for the next season.  

Later,
Mikey


Hi Guy's
Well the fifth run of kits is here.  I ordered these before Eric went on vacation and they can be shipped out right away.  Please include you email when ordering so I can send you the tracking number when they are shipped.  

Thanks for your support,
Mikey (May the P-Force be with you)

Hi Guy's & Gals,
The sixth run of P-Force shorts have just been ordered from Eric.  They will be here mid May same price & shipping.

Thanks for your support,
Mikey

Mikey,
It's going to take me a minute or two to get the money together for a Primary Force short kit. I see there will only be 10 or so produced.  If everybody else beats me to it, wish me luck next time. Actually, I will try to get payment sent to you by the end of the week. I hope that's soon enough.
Thanks,
Doug.

Hi Gregory,
I'm sure that we can do that.  Not sure of the cost of shipping but we can get that figured out I'm sure.  Send me your address and it will talk to the post office and see how much that cost would be.

Hey there Mate,
The shipping to Australia USPS priority is $50.00 but I'm looking into FedEx to see if it can be a little cheaper.

Mike,

I'll reserve one.  Check will go out on 03/28.  Any plans on popping down to the Twin Cities for some local deliveries?
Also, do you still make the CF landing gear for the PF? EDIT:  Or was that via Steve Wilk?

Hi Dick,
The new kits has two full length fuse sides.  The reason for the "S" curve was the laser cutter wouldn't do 36" balsa.  These worked pretty well and were a snap to assemble.  Eric has a 36" laser, so no need for them.  There are a few small changes but nothing big at all.

Mike ... I'm interested in one of the PF short kits if you have any left. I havent built in 5+ years and have been daunted by what to get. You just made it easy with this one. :)

Shipping to 33813 please.

Thanks a bunch for doing this! Larry

Hey Dick,
How are you?  The shipping of 10.00 covers all short kits shipped in the US (48).  Some are more and some less so it all works out.

Having crunched my reliable PF, I would like to get a short kit if you still have/make them.  Is the price of $79.99 + $10.00 still good?  I'll send off a check if it is.  Oh, I'm at zip 35802.

Hi Fred,
Sorry for not back to you sooner getting, my computer went on the fritz mw~.  Yes I do have a few kits left but they are going fast.  The Primary Force continues to sell like crazy.  It just goes to show you that good designs keep selling.  Price is still $79.99 plus $10.00 shipping.

Yes, I have a few left, however, I do have to place another order for the next kit run.  They are getting low and some people are ordering them two or three at a time.  Like always, $79.99 plus $10.00 shipping in the US.

Hi Matt,
Sorry it took so long to replay, I just saw this.  Yes I have a few kits available of The Primary Force that are ready for shipping ASAP.  The price is still $79.99 plus shipping of $10.00.  The PF XL is coming along nicely and should be released later this year (watch for the build log in the building section).

Thanks. For your interest,
Mikey

Hi Guy,
Yes there are a few changes in the short kit.  Nothing big but a few small changes to make it easier to build but nothing you can't handle I'm sure.  Email me and I'll layout the changes.
