    A couple of years ago I was told the Letov factory was still in exsistance, just not making the Sluka any more. I have no contact details though, good luck

    Thanks Ginge.

    I thought I heard that Thruster were making the replacement fuse tubes for the Sluka. Not sure if I remember that correcrly though.

    Best of ringing them I thinks.

    If you have a set of drawings, they are fairly straightforward to make.
    By the way, the tail feathers can be recovered in the new heat shrink fabric from Oratex. Approval is through from the LAA.

    I believe that you are thing of the Sluka that Sean had Mark. Gordon offered to make him up a fuse tube but I seem to recollect that he ended up with one from the Letov factory, I think that it was the last fuse tube that they had in stock

    Hi all,

    I am the guy looking for leading & trailing edge tubes. My inspector tells me he would prefer to see them changed due to pitting from corrosion.

    G-MYVG. sold by Mark Jones (thanks for the mention on the forum for tubes) to Nigel Garland who has fitted the new boom, a new engine, screen and many other things before it has come to me.

    It is ready to fly except for covers and this wing tube problem.

    I have been in touch with LAA UK & CZ. LAACZ & Letov no reply! Spoken to lots of people but nobody knows of anyone that can support the Sluka with drawings, parts or even back engineering.

    Anyone got any suggestions?
