    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 :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    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.

    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.

    I ogled this pic. Closed my tab and went to reddit. Scrolled about a minute and had to come back and take another look.

    The Delta Daggers (DEF and BD) are my favorites! I hope more models of them come into existence.
