For Sale: CH-750/CH-601/CH-650 Jabiru cowl and engine mount

I acquired a 750 project from another builder.  I am going to be hanging an O-235 on it, so I have no need for the Jabiru 3300 cowl and mount.$795 plus shipping for both.  That's 50% of the cost of purchasing new. See More

CH-750: 2 x 12 Gallon Fuel tanks; Wanted or For Sale

I took over a CH-750 project that was started by another builder.  I am installing a Lycoming O-235, and the standard 12 gallons tanks just aren't enough.  I have TWO standard 12 gallon tanks with sending units installed in perfect condition that I will sell for $500 (total for both) so that I can apply that money towards the 15 Gallon tanks, or I will give you $500 for your standard tanks (so that you can upgrade) and I'll just install Four 12 gallon tanks.Any takers?See More

::UPDATE:: (FEB2013) Now working for the Army at Ft. Leavenworth living in KCMO. I can't wait to get to know some Zenith builders in the area.

US Army CH-47 pilot. I have been stationed overseas and in consistent deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan since 2002. I have not yet had the opportunity to get back to the US, buy a house with a garage, and start building. Until such time I must live my airplane-building dreams vicariously through all of you. I originally had intended on building a CH-640, for which I purchased the plans. I have now decided to start off with an easier project; the CH-750--I purchased my CH750 plans at Sun-N-Fun 2009.

Thanks for the welcome.

Yes the 4 seater looks great and would probably perfect and familiar for those here who get their hours on the Alarus.  BUT, I understand that any kit build is an EXP, which means they don't work in club situations (essentially rental).
Mine (a 2003) has a large spot of paint peeling on the upper cowling.  I thought it was gel coat but understand it is just a thick paint.  I'm thinking of just using some bondo type filler - feather it in - and hit with some white spray.  Do you think that will work, or am I going to have it (professionally) spray repaired?

The aircraft is my own design and build called the Kingfisher. It is a 2 seat aircraft with a Jabiru 6 cylinder engine. It cruises at 1309 Kts and lands at 38 kts with full flap.

Thanks for the mock-up...-:)
I like the rivet touch!! looks more real. I will try to add a Round Rotec engine.
I took the dimensions on the FWF of the CH750 and the Rorec2800. The round cowling will have to be bigger than the standard cowlings by about 2 inches on the diametre. Should look real nice ....I hope..
I really like the ligthening up of the green on the wing tips... great job. i wasn't sure myself about the wing tips being green ..
We sure are having fun with our planes!!

Hello James, thanks for the friend request. I like your artwork. I am planning on red, white and some other color maybe gold. Something along the lines of number 16.
