* New Package! Limited supply of decals in stock: "Wop" May's Bellanca Pacemaker, CH-300 CF-AKI

Star Air Service Bellanca Pacemaker float plane package

We have a small supply of Star Air Service Pacemaker packages in stock; the Bellanca CH-300 kit, a pair of EDO K-4650 floats and Arctic Decals ARC72-042. Mika's very complete decal set comes with a very high-quality color multi-view diagram, historical notes and an option to build one of 2 different Star Air Bellancas:

NC-259M "Aquila" as flown by Steve Mills in 1934 on the first ever Anchorage to Seattle round trip commercial passenger flight...

...or fleet number 4, NC-690E with the older type "bow-legged" cantilever landing gear struts, so typical of the earlier Bellancas. Judging by photos, NC-690E appears to have served with Star Air Service from the summer of 1933 through winter of 1939 or 1940, at least.

**DISCONTINUED** Limited edition "Lituanica" kit.

These include the basic Pacemaker kit plus extra wing and horizontal stabilizer parts to extend the kit wing and tail to J-300 Long Distance Special configuration, a diagram sheet detailing this conversion work, and decals from Arctic Decals of Finland. Included with the decals is a detailed color 3-view of the famous Lithuanian transAtlantic Bellanca and a history brochure with useful photos.


PHOTOS FROM BUILDERS
Claudio Luchina has combined the CH-300 kit & some home made ink jet decals to nicely capture the first airplane of what is now Hawaiian Airlines. The original NC251M is still airworthy and has recently been re-acquired by Hawaiian Air:

Claudio has finished another Khee-Kha Bellanca - with his usual flair for the unusual - which can be seen on his blog.

Claudio's third Pacemaker on Wings of Intent; this time a corporate "jet":

Justin Walbrugh in England built one of the Khee-Kha Pacemakers, and added homemade markings and his own Edo K-4650's to represent "Shakey Jake" as operated by Marine Airways out of Juneau, Alaska in 1939.

Steve Kallan added Khee-Kha resin K-4650 floats to his Pacemaker and modeled Cordova Air Service's NC167N "Eyak":
