When I Emailed Cody this morning about something else I asked him when the Fr3aK would be listed on his site...

I just looked and there it is. Accepting Preorders http://www.skipmillermodels.com/product_p/fr3ak.htm . I hope tom is ready to crank out a bunch of these. So tempting...

I'm cranking on the first batch of airplanes for Skip and Cody right now. I apologize that the website doesn't have pictures yet. My photographer has gone AWOL after we did the photo shoot and hasn't sent me the photos yet.

Skip and Cody will have one or two of these in their hands in a couple of days so they may be able to get some more information and pictures up in the next week or ten days.

Thanks everyone for all the excitement generated around this airplane. Producing them is alot of work and if it weren't for the words of encouragement I likely wouldn't be doing this. Please be patient as we get into a rhythm with production and distribution.

Here are a couple of teaser pics of the production version. The wing now has wire channels routed before assembly and I'm doing more advanced painting than was done before. These pictures are of the cores being tested for thickness and fit before assembly of the wing.

The person who ordered this one will certainly know that this is theirs. I don't get alot of requests for pink SuperFr3aKs with black and white invasion stripes.

I'm really not going to do custom colors but I will accomodate requests if they don't add alot of effort on my part. Spraying something like pink instead of clear or white is pretty easy so I did it. I'm kinda interested in seeing what this ship looks like in the air, as I used to own a pink Blaster back in the day.

I understand.

Get some video while she flies. Sure all of us will love to see that.

since we are on the subject of color. What color/colors will the SuperFr3ak be available in?

It will be a lighter (white, yellow) with a tip color on top. Bottoms will be the same light color and dark bars, either done in the same color as the tip, or black. The one in the video is a good example of white / red.

Easy colors for tip / bars would be Red, Blue, Purple, Green, Black, Orange. Anything other than these over white / yellow would probably be a custom order.

For those of us with pending Fr3aKs on order, will you contact us about colors? Or should we proactively contact you or SkipMillerModels? Those colors aren't what I requested, but I can certainly live with some combination of the above.
