Richard Smith Interviews

  • Richard Smith is one of Frank's associates having worked for JASCO and contributed to his yearbooks. Below is an interview I conducted with Richard about his experiences working for JASCO and more specifically his relationship with Frank Zaic. Richard's account provides a fascinating look into Frank Zaic and the evolution of JASCO from a labor of love for Frank to a profitable enterprise run by his sister Christine. As Richard readily admits - these are his recollections - he doesn't claim to be the authoritative source on Frank Zaic. Just one mans account of what it was like to be around Frank back in the day...

Mike,

When will the 1:4 2-33A be available? I understand from Tom that Ren is building the beta kit.

Brian

Hi Brian,

Target date of Aug 1 for the 1:4 scale 2-33a

Greetings:

Does the short kit include the canopy and/or the formed nose cone? If not, are they available from any source because I do not have the capability to form them myself?

Thank-you

Does anybody monitor this thread? I also sent an e-mail a week ago with the same question and have not received an answer, either.

Sorry Kirt we do monitor these threads - I responded by email but sent it to Tom and not you doh! Here was the reply:

Hi Kirt,

The short kit price includes the canopy. You'll need to shape the nosecone from balsa block.

I have two kits in stock if you would like to order.

Thanks for your interest!

Good day,
I am in terested in this 1/8 kitbut have a comment and a question or two.
- When I click on the
"Listed below are links to weblogs that reference A078 - Schweizer SGS 2-33a 1:8 Scale:" link it simply refresh this page? Do you have an actual build log for this kit?
- The kit description state:
"Servos Req'd: Optional rudder, elevator.
FUNCTIONS: RC Rudder, Elevator, Ailerons, Dive Brakes ", Does the kit include all the parts to build the ailerons, dive brake elevator & rudder??? Do the plan indicate or suggest which servos to use and other components?
- This will be my first build am I dreaming of being able to build this?
- what exactly is missing from a "short kit" to be able to complete the construction?
What would be the total cost?
I love your kits, I am thinking of also getting the Thermic70, and secretely dreaming of the SGU 1-7.
can you also reply to my email address?
Thank you,
Alain
