    so what i am working on is i am starting my own model business where i use the magic of 3d printing to make conversion parts so you can turn any model kit in to a Reno unlimited air racer. so first up is voodoo in 1/48 scale then will be strega then dago red but i will cover all of the Reno air planes that have raced since 1963 and some airplanes will be there own model kit. and those will be miss Ashley 2 tsunami and the twin boom pond racer. i will do other scales but after i find out how well 1/48 sells.

    You can count me in as a customer! Are you going to do decals as well?

    Should have known! I've worked with Keith before. Looking forward to see what you come up with!

    For all the Rare Bear fans out there, check this beauty out. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/rc-w...bearcat-4.html The one none scale thing is he's still using flaps, but I wouldn't want to land that big heavy 'expensive' plane without flaps either.

    Hello All,

    As I mentioned in my Introduction, I recently purchased Paul Fisher's Sea Fury (photo from his website below). He kindly included all the parts I need to build her as a racer... 4-blade prop, proper wheels, no military armament, etc. This will be my first model in a LONG time... since I was a kid, really. I've looked over all the parts, and she is a beauty! I'd like to build her as close to how N13HP looked before her demise, in honor of my son who was flying her at the time. I may be asking for help now and again, so I hope you don't mind.

    I'm planning on working on the model during the winter months, and we are just coming out of hibernation now. Actually looking forward to the summer riding weather (I ride a Honda GL1800 whenever I can, with my wonderful wife in the passenger compartment!).

    I'm looking forward to seeing you build this one!
    N13HP is on my long list of things to build -it should look stellar with the Fisher model as a base!
