Four Bullets
« on: January 29, 2021, 01:29:34 AM »
There was a kit in the mid 50's for .049 engines called the Four Bullets.  It was a "racing" plane, fully cowled engine, with a hollowed balsa fuselage that could be build in four configurations  The combinations were based on upright or inverted engine, conventional tail or a "V" tail.

I think the kit came from Lincoln, Nebraska.

Does anyone have full size plans from this kit.

I remember the adds but never saw one. Growing up in a mining community we tended to be on the tail end of everything. Scientific and Enterprise had the manopolies on 1/2A models. I liked Enterprise kits over Scientific
