Help!
A wild Goose chase....from Grumman

HELP> VVT asked but I've drawn a blank this side of the pond. PLAN or KIT wanted new or old..

Now try as I might Ive come up short on this one ..The GRUMMAN GOOSE is the target subject.......not Mallard, Widgeon, Gosling or Albatross or Duck for the un inititiated in this aeromodeling equivalent of wildfowl
There are Radial engine versions and Turbo prop but its a Goose we are looking for Preferably 50-60" span size and for electric ......but we can change a glow plan.

So far I tried two links dead and found this one ........

http://www.kamodels.com/multis.htm home is http://www.kamodels.com/ MALLARD

At http://scalemodel.net/ Try this http://web2.airmail.net/jperkins/index.html ... GOOSE
