Anybody know what company produced the fiberglass


Can you help me identify the company who made the fiberglass (or kit) for this plane?
I have the plans, fuse, cowl, canopy and planes but don't know who produced it.
Cowl has the initials IMP molded on the inside.
Thanks for your help!

IMP Scale was a company operated by a scale modeler named Greg Namey. Although I didn't fact-check this, I was told that the IMP factory building suffered a severe fire several years ago. Accordingly, a lot of the kit tooling was also damaged and/or destroyed. Only repeating to you what I was told.
Greg Namey also was a contributing editor to a couple of modeling magazines from the '80s and '90s.
