News 20191129: Upper turret Bendix for the Mitchell
Dear readers,

Great news, we found an extremely rare piece for our B-25: an authentic Bendix A-9 upper turret.

As you know we have the plexiglass dome since the filming of the Catch 22 serie. But to date, in spite of diligent research for several years, it is the only turret that we found which is in a  acceptable conservation state.

As nothing is perfect, this turret is in Australia and it is a bit like everything about our B-25, incomplete but restorable. This turret is particularly interesting because it has one of two ammunition boxes in good condition, which is almost impossible to find.

We are raising funds to buy this turret, bring it back to Belgium and start collecting the missing components and putting it back in good condition.

If you want to participate to this project, help us collect the 5.400 US$ needed : make a donation via the Fondation Roi Baudouin, bank account BE10 0000 0000 0004 04 with the structural communication ***128/2714/00065***.
Any donation of more than 40 euro will be subject to a tax deduction

Chers lecteurs, chères lectrices

Bonne nouvelle, nous avons trouvé une pièce extrêmement rare pour notre B-25: une authentique tourelle dorsale Bendix A-9.

Comme vous le savez, nous possédons déjà le dôme en plexiglas depuis le tournage de la série Catch 22. Mais à ce jour, malgré plusieurs années de recherches assidues, force est de constater que cette pièce est la seule tourelle trouvée dans un état de conservation acceptable.

Comme rien n'est parfait, cette tourelle se trouve en Australie et ressemble un peu à notre B-25, incomplète mais restaurable. Cette tourelle est particulièrement intéressante car elle possède l'une des deux boîtes de munitions en bon état, ce qui est presque impossible à trouver.

Nous collectons des fonds pour acheter cette tourelle, la ramener en Belgique et commencer la collecte des composants manquants et à les remettre en bon état.

Si vous souhaitez participer à ce projet, aidez-nous à recueillir les 5.400 $US nécessaires: faites un don via la Fondation Roi Baudouin, compte bancaire BE10 0000 0000 0004 04 avec la communication structurelle *** 128/2714/00065 ***.
Tout don de plus de 40 euros fera l'objet d'une déduction fiscale

News 20190920: Prototype SV-4RS
Dear readers,
The BAPA usually takes care of old planes. This time, we  received an aircraft of the future.
BAPA had the great pleasure to add in his collection the latest version of the most-built Belgian aircraft: an SV-4RS manufactured by Ultralight Concept.
The SV-4RS is the ULM version of the Stampe SV-4 designed and produced by Raoul Severin, giving a new life to this legendary aircraft.
The received structure is one of the prototype cells that survived the stress tests requested to be registered in different countries.
Our purpose is to complete this structure in order to reassemble it and show the manufacturing techniques of this particular version.
We thank Raoul Severin to have thought of us to ensure the preservation of this future piece of aeronautical history.
