I know that Kitty Hawk went away for awhile, but they are supposed to be coming back so…. :hmm:

That could be a long wait, Stik.

The seller accepted my offer. The “J” is headed my way. If/when they are done, with about a 33” wingspan, I have no idea where they will go. May be wall hangers...

C & H made an RF-101C resin conversion for the Monogram kit. It's a pretty good set, but I don't think it's still in production. I sure wish Kitty Hawk had gotten the intakes right.

Looking more and more like we are SOL on getting this. I even called the guy at C&G, a Mr. John Carlton in Murfreesboro TN. Sadly, he sold the rights and all the "stuff" to a Mike Moore who has done nothing. Wah wah. John seems to be a really nice guy. He was happy to chat and still serving in uniform in the TN guard...not a federally controlled unit. He described it as more of a "militia", but all on the up and up. He is 77 years old.

He told me that the KYANG likely flew the G/H models as well.
