Leon - I would like to have your product on the QBA web site somehow in some form. Maybe a link to your email/web page or something after you figure out how much you want to charge. Just let me know what you think.

Subject: [Q-LIST] Quickie "plans" - templates

I've just finished plotting the first set of my CAD drawn templates for the Quickie (Q-1) and they should be in the mail to another Q-list member, for review to make sure that I haven't made any serious mistakes, today. I'm confidant enough that they are ready for market that I am letting the lists know that they are available.

I haven't yet decided on just how to market them so I'm open for suggestions.

I have 12 "D" size sheets (24"x36") that have every template, part, and jig drawing, from the firewall aft, that I have been able to find that QAC published with the original kit and the LS-1 upgrade. These sheets include all of the drawings in the construction manual as well so you no longer have to print the PDF files from David's CD with a large format printer. Just make a copy in standard letter size for shop use.

I had considered adding a set of templates that are off-set for those that like to hot-wire to a larger size and then sand to the final dimensions but I have not done this - yet. If anyone really wants a set like this, ask and I might provide.

I also have drawings of all of the welded and machined parts supplied with the original kits - in actual size - so there is no reason that any partially completed kit or damaged aircraft can't be finished or repaired.

Also if anyone knows of a source of reasonably priced software that will plot both raster and vector at the same time on a Hp 650C plotter using either WIN 98 or XP please let me know. I don't use AutoCAD much and the standard Windows drivers just don't work with mixed formula CAD. The Hp would be a bit quicker than my other plotter.
