Well I had planned on making this build log while I was building it but had no time, so here it is now and hopefully I can still get some input from all of you.

I bought the kit here on rcgroups.com so I could recreate a few for my own personal use. I ofcourse had the vision of making it better than it was before but still keeping the style the same, just modifying the airfoil to be more efficient, vacuum bagging the wings and tail, and reinforcing the fuse with carbon tow.

I'd also like to thank Carlos aka jcortiz for all his help and keeping me motivated to work on this project, and ofcourse he's getting prototype 2, and my son Lewis jr. for his help in laying up the fuse.

Still building more planes, I have recently accuired 2 kits my father helped design and flew in the 70's, the Deadbeat and the Hustler both 60" slopers fiberglass fuse with foam core wings. My plan is to make a mold and do some improvements to the old design including a modified e374 airfoil and carbon fiber fuse. also I received the plans for Mark Rebecks sos 60" and his sos 48" from sixty9mustang so I will be starting on those soon. I have a few extra planes for sale so if anybody wants them please contact me, thanks.
