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 on 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.

PVHC Price: $37.69
