Those who know me will be aware that my health has not been good of late. With two close family bereavements as well in the last seven months, I have had to make a decision.
A great deal of my time in the past few years has been involved with producing kits and foam wings for people who love to build but do not have the facilities to produce foam or cnc parts.
I now wish to concentrate on my own models now without the intrusion or stress of other peoples orders. In other words, I want to relax and enjoy my hobby.
I am therefore not accepting any more orders for wings or kits after completing the outstanding orders that I have already.
I hope that people will be understanding in where I am coming from and look forward to seeing you at events in the future.

Well done that man!
Quite recently I also decided to slash my workload by 50% or so, and I've also taken my personal pension. With our flying field just a few minutes drive from my house, I (potentially) ought to be able to fly most decent afternoons.......

Steve, as has been said, save your energy for your leisure time. Listen to your body, if it's telling you to slow down then don't argue with it. Best wishes for sunny skies and light winds for you.

I certainly will Frank. Just converted my Supra Fly 60 to electric. It is easier now for me to use that for power. Flew it for the first time last Tuesday. To say I had a grin like a Cheshire cat would be an understatement.

Well done on a difficult decision Steve! I'm sure everyone you've helped along the way really appreciates your hard work & effort (I certainly do!)
The time comes for all of us to have some quality time doing what you want, when you want, seeing people/going places, etc etc., especially when health throws a curved ball.
I can understand your position as am there myself now!
Very best wishes!

Good luck in your retirement, at the weekend and spurned on by your Bulldog thread I managed to fine Bulldog Fuz or all the signs are it is the same as the one in your pictures, I thought I would give you a shout regards the wings and tails, that was a flawed concept! 🤣😎
I very much respect your decision so are there any pictures you can point me in the direction of as I have not even got a finished model image to go off, I do need to make a plug for the canopy so obviously the shape would be helpful.
I am considering taking a mould from this untouched moulding so to make it lighter with epoxy and cloth I have my original Mick Reeves kit of the Capricorn which I am taking right back to gel coat and have remedial work to do on that, I have the original wing and a new retract wing for that too.
Any information re the Bulldog would be very much appreciateted.
And enjoy your retirement!
