Hi Larry,

Since TA is no longer producing this kit, then my plans may be a reasonable alternative. I've been working with Perry, and now Bill Schimpf to see if we can get vacuum formed parts made for this model. The plugs are still being worked on, and I have to modify my plans to increase the diameter of the fuse slightly so it fits the TA nose. The other option is about 5 minutes with a lathe since it is pretty symetrical.

I'm not sure on all the ethics of this, but as far as I know TA never copyrighted their kit/plans. Further, I based my B-29 on measurements of a TA model, but it is not an exact duplicate (the fuse diameter for example). If there is any problem with what I have done I have no problem stopping. The last thing I want to do is tick off anyone in this small hobby world.

-Jim
