I have what I believe is a complete and original Carl Goldberg Voodoo combat CL kit. The box is rough, but everything seems to be there including the tissue. I can take pictures if interested.

I actually have a Sneeker kit from Vintage Performance, Bill. The laser cutting and wood are superb. Also have a couple of Walt Umland's kits, they too are simply top-notch.

Can't recommend those two suppliers highly enough - what a pleasure to work with that quality!

I've probably had enough Voodoos for one lifetime, here are some I'd be interested in:

Ambroid Scrapper
California Models Quicker
Carr Guillotine
Cleveland Super Whatzit, Whatzit
Consolidated Wow
Flite Line Fury
Guillow Galaxy, Reactor
Harters Count Clipper
Midwest Half Fast, Lil Half Fast, Hornet, Omega
Sterling T Square
Top Flite Combat Cats
Veco Big Iron

That lazer thing has taken the hobby world by storm and looks like the new norm

I have a Midwest Firefly. It looks like a .15 sized Matador. Interested?

Thanks for the responses!

The Combat Cats and Combat Kittens were fun - PM with condition & price delivered to zip 56071 if you want to sell.

A friend & I used Combat Kittens with Medallion .049s on bladder pressure and short lines for cheap, easy practice. The airplanes survive well on grass.

I'm not interested in the Midwest Combat Kits of later years - personally, I think most had too thin airfoils & too little area for the engines they were generally flown with.
