I think this is great! A personal connection. I don't have one that I know
of but have spoken with other that do.

If flying models is your preference as it is mine, I cannot help you much.
There maybe some good FF models of these aircraft (LarryM any ideas?). As
for R/C there are no kits that I am aware of. Bob Holman does carry plans
of some of these aircraft. They are generally English plans. I'll bring his
catalog tomoroow and post the information.
