Just general Warbirds. I read through your build log, great work man. I love the old WWII planes, just classic lines, nothing beats them. My Great Uncle flew a F-2, and my first command in the Navy used to fly F-2's for their first aircraft.

Thanks. Check out these, www.Meister-scale.com, www. precisioncutkits.com, or PSK.com, www.Bhplans.com. www.laserlizard.com.

PSK offers most kits laser cut. I've used them for many years now. Laser liz is another kit cutter.

If your really into warbirds or just scale aircraft in general, check out this site. www.rcscalebuilder.com. They also have links for many kits and tools for your needs. You must become a member to check out the forums but it's worth it.

I checked out the site, just not the kind I am looking for that I can see. I am looking for balsa warbird kits. I guess that would help out a lot.

Here is the short cut for ebay RV. http://toys.shop.ebay.com/Radio-Cont...=p3286.c0.m282

If you want topflite kits, you're better off going to www.towerhobbies.com.

Pica kits are getting unrealistic on ebay. Also check out www.rcuniverse.com for sone good deals on unbuilt kits from both pica and topflite
