You should post some photos just for spite? I'd love to see what the ARF and glass fuses look like. I just emailed you about the cores. Great job on reinventing the Silhouette.

Hi from RCbobcat55 I am in the process of building the first 2 arf's and experimenting with different glass/cf combinations. The lost foam/glass technique is too time consuming so I am working on the built-up fuselage with glass over it and painted with lacquer. I have a protptype slope racer fuselage fuselage done and will be using the same techniques to do the silhouettes. I will take pics as I go along so you can see how things go together. I am also working on a new way of doing elliptical and semi-elliptical wing planforms using depron and an internal interlocking structure which may be patentable. We will see. When the models are done I will post pics and do up a sheet which I can e-mail to anyone interested. Thanks for the support. Bob M...If anyone would like to place pre-orders e-mail me. There will be no money changing hands until the models are ready to ship, I can cut cores now and I have some in stock.

Bob, start a new thread and list the shorts kits that you have available. I think this is great.

Hi Mo. Thanks for the suggestion I posted them under slope in the topics section. I have the Quicksilver plans just about done and will be cuting some cores and fuselage sides soon. I still have the sos fuselage ready to cover and a set of wing cores. I think it is the 40" version. PM me for pricing-you have first shot at it-also I can include the full size plans with the fuselage and cores. thanks Bob M..
