Here are couple of quotes from one of Bob's friends from another thread;

"All Bob Martin models had french-curve airfoils hand drawn by Bob himself. He did not utilize any other designers engineering data to develop his model lines. Everything is totally Bob Martin through and through. I know this for a fact as he told me so earlier this summer."

"The plane began as the LR-50, a design by Kevin McDonald that Bob says had many issues when Kevin brought it to him to market. Bob had to make many changes to the design including the airfoil, empanage, feathers so it would fly good. The assembly technigues were also adjusted for better modeling purposes. Then he bought the rights from KM and called it the Talon. This is when the model took off towards 2000 units a month! So the final design was completely revamped into Bobs Talon we know today."
