  • I am in the process of building a trailer for my Dad’s 1-26 and I need some information regarding the wing holders (the one for the leading edge) see picture. How they are made, spec, what gauge steel they are made from…etc any info would help

    Where can I find information the differences between the various models of 1-26’s?

    • Bret, Where are you located? If your not heavy I may have one for sale that is located in the Los Angeles area. Its the one I got in the estate auction and you saw the thread.

    • Bret, if you’re still looking check out Wings and Wheels. Free classified ads. https://wingsandwheels.com/classifieds

  • Hello All
    I just joined. I bought Serial number 390 in an online auction in Apple Valley CA. I am in Burbank CA and will drive out to pick it up after the holiday.

    Looking forward to learn lots from this group. Flew sailplanes in the 90s and bit again about 15 years ago. Also fly a C182p

    • Marc – it is great that you found your 1-26 on an online auction. Was it eBay? I have never thought to look there. BTW – I also fly a Stinson 108-2
