Hi jillies. Do you have some details about the kit ,span,weight, price.
Do you need some one to prove the kit?

Gents
Please forward any questions from the UK or Europe about the Pilatus B4 or any other of my design to Cliff Evans
Cliff has all the details and can tell you the price for drawings and parts.
There is a B$ from my plans built in New Zealand at the moment photo's of the fuselage are on the SSUK forum.
This built is at a halt at the moment due to the passing away of the builders wife.

The spelling of my name is always a problem but I am used to it now

Cheers

Jilles

H guys,seems to be a little confusion regarding the b4,Jillies is the designer,not the builder,Cliff Evans is set up to supply the plans and kit in the uk,l am just a willing(very!),builder of the kit from cliff,any queries etc will be ably dealt with by cliff evans,though l am happy to help where l can as the build progresses....Jack. :)

Hi all,the Pilatus b4 is now in build,so far l have managed to put together the basic fuselage frame and am progressing to the tail fin,the kit builds very well indeed,everything slots together,albeit needing to be eased slightly,l did comment to cliff about this,apperently he preffers a tight fit to a sloppy one ;) ,l cannot fault him on that!!,so all is well thus far,l hope to be skinning the fus towards the end of the month,never having done that before it promises to be an educational experience,thankfully l have the late great cliff charlesworths excellent book close to hand,thats it for now,cliff will be posting the latest batch of pics soon,all the best,jack.
