Kit PD-09 Russell Chambers 1938 R-1 Chambermaid is a laser cut balsa wood kit
for the serious flying competitor. This kit is a modified Bill Henn competition
design Greve Racer.
With retractable landing gear, a wingspan of 13'10" and a fuselage
length of 17'4" the Chambermaid was one of the smallest racers ever built.
Russell Chambers built this "tiny screamer" in his garage. When Art
Chester saw the plane he commented, "Ya forgot the wings, Russ." Sadly
September 12, 1938
at the National Air Races in
Cleveland, Chambers died when he crashed his plane into a vegetable patch.
This kit includes a full-size rolled CAD drawn plan, building and flying
instructions, premium laser cut balsa parts, hand-picked competition weight
balsa strip wood, vacuum-molded canopy, exhaust cylinders, spinner and wheels in
up position, FAI rubber, Peck nose bearing and propeller, LaserCal™ markings
(precut markings), and Easy Built Lite tissue in white.
