I've also seen instructions for making your own here on RCG but I can't find the thread right now. Maybe somebody else remembers it. Basically you wrap your (planes) nose in Saranwrap and then lay up a bunch of carbon cloth around the nose and incorporate a central fin. Cure it and then cut/sand away anything that doesn't look like a skeg.

This PP is killing me!! I can't believe it's still up for sale. If it wasn't for my new Espada RL this thing would be mine. Who ever gets this thing will be one lucky pilot. These things are sweet flyers.
