There is a matched drilled center section set that fits the kit I sold floating around Phlogiston, Van's, who knows where. They are being very helpful, but it is looking like the raw parts will have to be substituted and the holes manually drilled to match. Not the end of the world, but makes for a lot more work.
If you have a 3 kit with QB wings, double check to make sure you have the
F303 parts in your kit! Dont trust the paper work as being complete.
I just might know where they are ... I'll check into it. What's your #?

Sounds like a systemic problem. My center section bulkhead "bundle" was missing also. They showed up about a month after calling vans but after I made my own.

I feel it is due to the list... just getting past over as NIP. Need to call Scott, he'll make it right that's for sure.

Default And Whala...

We have located F303 pre-punched center section parts for an RV3B. Who do they belong to? I guess we will see. What's your RV3B Build #?

Darrell, I believe what you may have found is one or more of the 320-1 spar splice plates from Don's 3B QB wings. If I recall correctly, I checked the s/n and they matched with his kit number. I don't however have a clue as to the whereabouts of this set of wings.

Spar number is #054.

If anybody else has an "extra" set, please check the #. It would be nice to find these missing pieces!

Yes... We thought they were JonJay's... I went out and got them, pulled the number and the parts are not his. We're still searching...

What an amazing resource DR has put together for us that we could even hope to find such things....

Now, whoever has my parts, speak up!!! They would have shipped over two years ago, so I am not holding my breath.


Paul - sorry for the thread drift. Your work as always is fantastic.
