Air Kill Products
Anyone remember AirKill Products? Are they out of business?? The web site is still up, but my email bounced back as undeliverable.
I built one of their F8F Bearcats back in 1997, Would like to build another, as if flew sooo good. Still have the plans, so will build from them, but need the cowl and canopy. Plus, these old plans are cut up, some parts are missing
Would like to find a source for the plans, and cowl/canopy.
Of course, if the company is still making kits, I might just buy another kit.

Wasn't that Jeff Wiess? I know the plans were by Gus Morfis, at least most of them. Anyway I think Jeff was heavy into the combat flying (was it 702 at the time) but then it seemed like everything just kinda stopped... It would be nice to be able to get the canopies and cowls again. I have several of the plans. They are still available from the plan designer. I think there is someone that has foam cores. They come up on eBay, mostly for the f-82 but I think he has others.

Yes, these designs were originally for RCCA Combat, and designed for .25 two-strokes. Sadly, it looks like all these kits makers are out of business.
But plans are still available from Gus Morfis. All of them should make good E conversions.
As far as the canopy, I might try Keith Sparks, he most likely already makes one that should fit. The cowl, I might just build from balsa and 1/64th ply.
That sounds like a good challenge, which is what scratch building is all about
