RC Model World Little Toot

I dug out a set of plans from 1995. Phillip Kents 1/4 scale Little Toot, plan code MW2549.

The problem is the cowl. Plan says fibre glass or balsa, I'd prefer FB, it's a big cowl and would be a nightmare in balsa.

Anyone know where or who sells these cowls, preferably in the UK.

Cheers

Ian

I found a possible.

You have the RC Model World 57" Little Toot ?

If so, RCM&E have the same size plan and a cowl listed --

scroll down the page for the cowl -- 22.95, they also do the Spat set -- 11.45

I'm not good molding fiberglass cowls. I can usually hog out a one-off cowl from 1/4" balsa and cover it with fiberglass cloth. Old school but it works.

Might well be the same....

Just need to sit down now with note pad, run up a timber list and talk to the bank re a mortgage for the balsa !

That's why I now build using Depron foam.
