Contest for the Purchase
of the Last Plans Set
A contest is being conducted to see who bought the last set of plans
from the Maupins; and thus, has the highest serial number. The prize
is publishing your number and a link. Thanks to Steve for not only
sending in his serial number, but sending a photo of his plans canister
with the serial number. Due to some kind of mix up on my part, I
used Steve's letter but attributed it to another builder.
Please be aware this is the fourth "Steve" involved with the Carbon
Steve Rappe ... building
Stéphane Abbet ... complete
Steve Arndt ... complete (Magic Dragon ... renamed due to modifications)
Steve Adkins ... maintainer of the website, no longer building
If you hold a higher number, please send your information to:
Please include Name, address,
email, Serial Number and Intentions to build, study or modify.

I was just examining your new Carbon Dragon page and noticed you
updated the plans sold to number 473. I can only imagine you are
serious about the number sold. ... snip ... Anyway here is a photo
of my canister.
I'm still working on building space but have a hope to build the
Cd or a derivative.
Email, Tue 2/4/2003 1:29 AM .... Hi Steve,
I was the last person to buy plans from Margaret Maupin. I
received an email stating that they no longer sold plans - after mine were
paid for! I replied to the email and found out I wasn't supposed
to get it. My set was the last sold. Serial number is 473.
|Too bad, seems to be quite a demand for the plans, even if it is
just for study (like myself). I'm still getting some design work
done on my derivative design, but starting up a new business has slowed
progress considerably. Hopefully by late fall, I'll be ready to start
making molds and parts.
Note: Jim Maupin hoped for derivative designs.
