Only a handful in existence. 6 IIRC.
I didn't realize it was that few.
'Em sum effin weird pants, dude. You got 'em on back'rds?
Those are some serious kit, they last about for ever.
it's kind of a weird angle
pants are pretty normal, maybe my anatomy's messed up
I too have an OGFK with ECAM scales. I didn’t know that there were only six sets made. Thanks for sharing that info @JustinFournier . I do remember that it took months to find one and work a trade deal to get it.
On a similar note to @Casinostocks story, I gifted this set of scales a while back to a dear forum friend who is more of a collector than I am. Last year he was interested in an uncommon set of UF scales I had, so we worked a trade and the ECAM scales came back to me. I think he knew I kind of missed them, so he found an excuse to devise a plan to get them back to me. Thank you Amigo!
Phil, you have 2 of the most elusive OG CPKs
If I find the time, I will go back to search the 2 sales threads pertinent to the sales which offered the OGFK and the EDC1 patterns with the early ECAM options. I think that back then, Nathan either had not scored the motherlode out of that ship yard thingy deal or he had just tapped into a very small section of it. I dunno really, maybe Nathan can chime in.
Chillin’ with Ol’ Dad...
^ I love that dagger
I got some of the original material to try it out and see if I could do anything with it. It's very old stock (1950's perhaps) for bearings for prop shaft. It's round. It's not particularly simple to work with and I didn't know what I wanted to do with it. Once I figured out what it was and what I could do with it, I got all of it. Those OG FK were very early in the process.
Those integral daggers are my TRUE grail
I ogled this pic. Closed my tab and went to reddit. Scrolled about a minute and had to come back and take another look.
They really are masterpieces, I wanted to scratch one up SO bad
CPK pic for thread relevance
Fk2 on my side today. Giving the respect the weekend off.
The Delta Daggers (DEF and BD) are my favorites! I hope more models of them come into existence.
