This is a New in Box, unstarted Skybench Aerotech Osprey 2 meter sailplane all wood  Wing and Tail Feathers kit. It comes with incredibly beautiful machined wood parts. Please note that the fuselage parts are not included except for the fiber glass canopy. This kit came from an estate and I believe the fuselage is probably somewhere else or this is a wing and tail only kit for when a fiberglass fuselage was ordered.

You get all the parts you see pictured: The full size building plans, the machined wing ribs, wing tubes and metal joiner spars, plywood center section ribs, the stabilizer package with metal joiners, a package of parts labeled fin and rudder that look like the rudder is broken into 2 pieces but bagged nicely with all the other rudder parts, the fiberglass canopy, some control hardware, nylon tape, a package full of shear webbing, machined wing tips, plywood center section doublers and balsa blocks, a large supply of wing sheeting balsa sheets, a package of spruce and balsa spars, 2 flex-cable packages and a small bag of cotton wadding.

Near as I can tell according to the plans, the fuselage formers and fuselage sides, plus a nose block are missing. I have seen models on the internet that have fiberglass fuselages, so this kit might be normal except for the broken rudder piece which will glue together quite simply-clean break.

BOX CONDITION: clean with some handwriting on it.

Shipping weight is about 2-3 pounds, 39 x 6 x 6 inches. Item will not be double boxed unless requested and additional weight paid for because the box is probably not a collector's item. I plan on taping it completely shut and it's shipping with labels on the outside.

On Jun-15-12 at 04:33:13 PDT, seller added the following information:

SPECIAL NOTE: The last 3 pictures showing the fiberglass fuselage and the finished plane were copied from RCU listings to show what the fuselage for this plane looks like. They are for reference only, not for representation of what you will be getting There is NO FUSELAGE included with this auction. I added/posted these photos so people could have an idea of what the plane is supposed to look like. Also, further research into the plane proved that there was a fuselage manufactured that was sold separately. The original kit probably did have had wood fuselage parts as you can tell be the copied comment below. Either way, the listing is for the partial kit only with no fuselage parts included of any kind, wood or otherswise except the fiberglass canopy that is shown.

This kit can be build with either a flat or a polyhedral wing. It has a 3014 airfoil. It can also be built for RE or with a flat mount wing saddle for hotliner flying.

Here is what one guy on RCU said about this plane: ""Skybench Aerotech Osprey 2 meter kit with additional fiberglass fuselage boxed up when Ray still lived in Michigan. This bird was designed by Ray Hayes with a 3014 airfoil and a shoulder-mount wing that can be anything from polyhedral to spoileron to full function with flaps and ailerons. The wing is fully sheeted wood, Schuman planform. With the wooden fuselage included with the kit, I would think it qualifies for Ray's proposed "Woodie class" rules. The fiberglass fuselage includes a canopy and a bunch of associated bits in a zip-lock back required for completing that option. ""

So there you have it, this is a Partial Kit. The last 3 pictures showing a fiberglass fuselage and kit, as well as the completed glider are for reference only, not representative of what you will be getting.
