Several days ago I posted the history of the Baslee Camel and I guess it got lost, so I am resubmitting and will keep a copy this time, just in case...
There are five kits out there as of a couple days ago.
So, the project was first started by Russ with Robert. I was struggling with the decision between the ful size Dr1 and a Nieuport 28 when I saw the Camel and immediately wanted one.
Robert was going to launch a production kit if he could get four orders and this was just prior to Oshkosh. I sent him an order and he got three more from Oshkosh and later, so the kit was a go. Three of the kits were 4130 steel fuselage, which was a surprise to Robert, especially since the prototype was also and a first to AA. One kit went to England and one or two to Canada, I believe.
I was able to help with some of the production details and am working on a builders guide, which I hope to be done soon, but will continue to be a work in progress.
I was hoping of getting a listing of the new builders to help each other, but haven't had any responses.
There is a lot of information in the Aerodrome Aeroplane chat group that will hep.
So that was the way it happened...
