Guys, let me know what you want. I have short kits of Jr Falcon (build tread on other site), Page Boy, School Boy and Micro Mambo (smaller version of the Mini Mambo by Bob Harris). Almost done with the Jr Skylark and have many of the plans to the planes that were on that site. Probably won't be as fast but I should be able to provide them.

Bob sold the biz to Wing MFG several years ago. Wing just never seemed to make a real go of it.

Or Wing never tried to make a go of it.....I haven't seen them do much in the model arena for many years. They used to be a big supporter, but kinda dropped off the radar years ago.

Thanks Gene! I plan on attending this year as well. I read where Vic had posted to someone about the event. Hopefully I will bring some U-Control stuff as well.

Perhaps a victim of the foreign manufactured low cost ARF craze?

Perhaps then insufficient sales to support the bottom line, then I suppose. But that doesn't prevent one from scratch building.

Got your PM Vic, thanks for the info.

Gee, I get no respect here! I'm only 49 thank you........... See, I started scratch building when I was a kid because I couldn't afford anything and it has just carried over. I'm currently working on an 020 size racer "Razor". I may do an online build once I finish my daughters PT 20. Almost ready for covering on that.

Yikes! That photo looks like me with a beard! And your wearing my clothes too! Are you half bald also? Well, I'm 2 years younger so maybe when I grow up a beard will come.

Nice looking planes! I love 1/2A. I noticed the antique Mattel and Ace (or Testers) pulsers and Kraft equipment. Dang! More stuff like mine! It's like some weird twin thing! I should order some short kites to keep up!

Na, I'm pretty much totally bald! Little trim around the base and the rest natural, no shaving. The Kraft radio belongs to Gene. The Mattel was mine. Have 2 more. Let me tell ya, if you look like me, you are one lucky guy!
