Help!
Bill Falck's Rivet Racing Aircraft

Hello,
I'm doing a Bill Falck's Rivet for Real Flight G4.5, and have a serious lack of information about this aircraft. I'm looking for Reference photos, specs, air racing history, Ect..... I have searched for pics and info on the web but my browser is coming up with only a couple of small pics nothing to really go on. I'm hoping someone out there has a better Browser than me, are has info on the plane.

If you have any information about the Bill Falck Rivets, please add this information here. Thanks so much

I think it will be

If I'm not mistaken, I think this is the original CS for the plane. From the 3 view pic I am modeling, it has references to RED and YELLOW, written all over the page. So I think these pics will help out. Thanks

Dave Shadel used to manufacture a Rivets quarter midget racer. Looks like he's still racing. I'm sure he's still got plenty of info on the plane, and here's his site....
