Dual Clubs – Up coming at Lost Hills

From: Don Bartick
Just a reminder, that the Dual-Clubs FF Bonanza at Lost Hills will be sharing the field with the Patterson Memorial FAI event starting Friday, November 10th thru Sunday November 12th. We will have Vintage Wakefield on Friday. This may be of interest to the FAI attendees to come a day earlier and partake in this event and other AMA/NOS/OT events. Also, on Friday will be our traditional Ice Cream Social at noon. Patterson attendees are welcome to this and our Saturday night Food Fest. No cost. Our flyer is available on the Lost Hills Free Flight Model Airfield Association website.

In search of an F1A Model Box for a Junior flyer.

Where does one source the White fiberglass boxes? Are they still being manufactured?
Please reach out with pictures, dimensions, and prices.
I also need 5.5mm wing joiners for a conventional Stamov Model.
Anyone still sell them?
Thank You!
