I wish they would leave the recesses out so that we can fit what we like!

I'll still buy one though if the price is right
The retracts have always been the tricky area and a complete solution is best. manufactures really don't design for 3rd party retrofits, most of the time it's pure luck two different parts not made for each other fit together.

I personally prefer electric retracts and some experiments are under way with these frames and trunnions so all hope is not lost.

They will cost more than the traditional foam core, balsa sheeted & covered methods. nothing final yet but it will be reasonable considering the great improvement in durability and finishing.

B.) Yes it is sweet! Sorry for keeping it on the DL... but sometimes we have to wait for the *OK* from the factory before letting these puppies off the chain!

Sniper is complete, just waiting for a good day to maiden. Then I'll start posting a build thread here! Any more questions, please feel free to ask!

Hey Robert, what's your best guess for ETA on the new Sniper? I know that the L-39 and F-16 were both quite a wait even after the protypes had been assembled and tested.
