If Toni Clark are getting stock in March I assume Bernie will be getting stock at the same time. Buying from him will save you all the agro of customs and all other post Brexit issues.
We really should be supporting UK businesses now !?

Stuart sells the Airworld one. He is still trading and you can find his advert in the classifieds at the back of any LMA Journal.

Re: Wanted.....LET Z 37 Cmelak

Pete Goldsmith Designs in the USA does a kit of the Cmelak. I do not think it is 100% scale and it does not show the corrugations on the wings but they could be added. There is also the Airworld kit. I am not aware of any other options apart from the plan Dave mentions above.

Re: Interference on electric retracts

I am guessing a dirty commutator on one of the electric retract motors producing sparks which are being picked up by the wiring to the the flap servo causing it to glitch. Take the retract out and in a dark room look to see if you can see any sparking across the commutator.
