Pat Teakle Gliders

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

Can anyone comment on the following.

 

Hi,

I am also refurbishing a Pat Teakle Vega but have not got as far as you yet, but interested in your Log so far. Have you flown it yet? by the way new canopies are available and they are about £25 available fromw.j.d.e.williams@btinternet.com who has taken over all of Pat Teakles molds so spares are now available again.

 

 

I have been looking for the chap that bought Pats molds for some time now and I have sent this person an email back in Feb of this year but got no reply.

 

Does anyone know if this person is in business and if so is he selling Pats Gliders ?.

 

 

Yours.

 

Adrian.

Hen's teeth!

 

Not heard of any models being produced but canopies are or were available a couple of years ago as a friend bought one.

 

I have a Teakle Vega, extended span version.

 

Was flying with Pat late last year on a visit to Crook Peak, beats me how he climbs that hill carrying a 1/4 scale model!

 

It was very windy and Pat and the locals hid behind the lee, so I chucked my Phase 6 off (took three of us) and amazingly got it back down without even breaking the wing bolt (which is a first!).

 

I'm sure that Pat said whoever bought the moulds did nothing with them.

Hi Gary.

W.J.D.E got back to me but said they have nothing to do with Pats molds/models. 

I am looking into T9 Hobbies at the moment. They might be the one I'm looking for.

 

Will let you know.

 

As I said I have a Pats Teakle ASW22 Kit ( 6m ) but I am not sure if I will keep it or let it go for sale ( £200 + P&P ovno ). 

As you know I just bought the Ka-7 plan and might use the ASW22 to fund the wood pack for it. 

If you hear of anyone interested in it please give them my email address or telephone number ( pro@live.ie - Tel: 00353852346888 ).

 

Talk soon.

 

Adrian.

The hunt goes on.

Hi,

If you're just after the canopy, you could try ringing Roly at Sarik vacform in Bristol. He used to do loads of canopies for all sorts of model kits & manufacturers. Also he's a really helpful guy.

Yes, could well have been Sarik.

 

Very tempted on the 22 but my modelling piggy bank is pretty empty at the mo!!

No Mike.

The ASW22 is complete with everything that Pat sent me when I bought it from him. I'm ok for the Canopy.

Well Gary.

It's yours if you want it.

 

Have a good think about it and make me an offer

.

 

How about:
I just might settle for the following.
Kaiser Ka-7 Cut Parts *
Euro £125.00 + £26.50 Postage to Ireland = £151.50 + the P&P to send the ASW22 over to you or you might have someone that will pick it up for you ?. 
Sounds like a good deal to me.

Let me ring the bank manager (well I could ask her directly!!).

 

My mother lives in Roscommon but doesn't get over here very often.

 

Mmmm....very tempting!

Flowers always helps.

 

I could make a trip to Roscommon, if you cover the fuel ?.

 

You could post the Ka-7 wood pack to your Mam and I could pick it up at the same time ?.

 

 

Let me know... you could PM me.

The search for the PT moulds is taking on the characteristics of the search for the lost ark and the missing challis!  Has anyone asked Barry at Foam Wings?  I've just brought a new Sarik canopy for my HP18, £24.
