In January (2020) I placed an order with customairmodels.com for a 1:28 scale display model of my CH601XL and it finally arrived yesterday (May 14). It's not perfect, but at $234 including DHL Express from the Philippines I'm pretty happy with it.
Building and Flying Info / Your Profession / Other Background Info
Obtained my private pilot certificate on Sept 11, 1964, while on active duty in the U.S. Air Force stationed at Hill AFB, UT. I have a total of about 3,000 hours as PIC. Other interests are amateur radio, bicycle touring, and sailing. I retired in 2003, and spent much of my career in the financial services industry.
In December, 2016, I took the Rainbow Aviation Services LSA Repairman-Inspection course and now have my FAA LSA Repairman-Inspection certificate for my Zodiac.

Thanks so much for the reply. Your story sounds much like mine. I have a Private rating but let it lapse and will use my California drivers license to get a recertification in the sport pilot category. I have many questions so I appreciate the links and will likely be in touch.
