Thanks for looking.

Well, I'll be ordering one now.  I've been loath to trash my original NIB Hyper Viper, so this will be a good solution.

Now you just need to make a replica Cox Spook.

I'll have to add it to my ever growing list n~
I've still got to finish up the PT-19, FW190 (COX Super Stunter), Lou Wolgast's 1/2A Mirage, and the Jim Walker Firebird....

The Mirage will most likely be a built up wing. I tried my hand at a foam wing on Jim Walker's Firebird and it didn't come out all that good.

Maybe just a fuse and tail kit for me. I'm pretty handy with foam.
Either way, the Mirage 1/2A, and the full size are on my wish list.

A few people were wondering about the "jig" for building the wing.
Here are few pix of the jig that comes with the regular kit.
It's very very simple, but does the job rather easily.
Works best if tacked down over the plans into a piece of drywall.
If you tack it to your wife's dinning room table...I NEVER HEARD OF YOU!!!!
