    Yeah, don't do that....aside from the prop blades, a Mustang spinner, and wheels (I think I used some Lear Jet wheels), there is nothing in common to 'kit bash'.

    Somewhere, though, I have scale 3-view plans for Tsunami in 1/48. I scratch built one in 1990 livery in 1/38, and then scaled up the plans to do a 1/32 in the orange '91 motif.

    P.M. me, and if you'd like I'll see if I can find those plans for you to use.

    Anybody tried one of these? A tad spendy but might save a lot of frustration trying to fab up the turtledeck/ windshield and modified scoop. They also offer a 232 in 1/72 scale that would save someone MUCHO work. I'm guessing these are resin models that will require more clean-up than your average production kit but still.

    just to let every body know i am staring my own line of 3D printed parts so u can build the famous air racers like voodooo or strega or dago red and i will be doing rare bear and other racers. i will first make the parts in 1/48 scale then parts in other sizes if the 1/48 sells well

    After I get my model hydroplanes race ready for next season, I plan on starting work on my Thundertiger electric series aircraft. First will be Rare Bear (mid 90's scheme I hope), then September Fury (yellow wings), two mustangs as Strega and then 1979 Red Baron (actual contra rotating setup!). They are electric powered and I hope to do same mods as real aircraft and hope for 70mph range.
