Dont think is going any more,

see below taken from his website

Foamwings - the premier site for model aircraft foam-cored wings.

As I'm now past the age of retirement I have decided to spend my time building and flying my own models, and so the company is for sale.

Along with the Domain name, CNC cutting and vac-bagging equipment I am also offering to give up to three days of training to cover all aspects of wing making.

Enquiries in the first instance should be by e-mail to

Thread: Ideas for articles in RCM&E
02/05/2017 09:37:26

What would be good but not really asking for an article could we maybe get a cd (or a download link) with cad files for each free plan, as I think most of the files would already be available and more than a few of us now CNC ect

Mad but worth asking for

got a reply today good job I held on as the kit is listed as in stock and they said that they have no stock for at least 3 weeks .. so I could have paid and have to wait 3 weeks for delivery > a little misleading by selling stuff not in stock

bit bored so looking for a new kit.

Hi has anyone bought from cloudmodels I quite fancy the Solange Kit for slope flying, Ive emailed them a couple of times with no answer and as the buy option only include a paypal checkout I was beginning to feel a little nervouse about clicking buying

Thread: Wendell Hostetler Piper pawnee
10/04/2017 21:18:25

Yes I was looking a at the lazer cut parts kit , I also intend to make some parts on my own small CNC router but I also enjoy the more traditional way of building from plans too.

I have seen a couple of Ytube Vids of the same model from the plan I have and maybe would like to have a working spray system too ( smoke I think)

It's a large model to build and fly compared to some of my others, so may as well jump in and build during the rest of the year..

10/04/2017 12:14:23

Wondering if any here has built the Piper Pawnee from Wendell Hostetler plans, as I have a set and cant decided whether to build it, as its a large bird .

any pointers before I begin would be good,
