I'll probably have to get one as well....unless anyone knows of anyone coming out with a Sea Fury ARF....

Desert Toad,

You don't mind if I paint it up with the Dago Scheme do you? Doesn't look like your going to get her flying by memorial day. Have anything else ready?

I don't think you or brother Dago should be allowed to get one.

I've been rooting for the bear, even though it's the underdog in Reno, but you two just root for the winner.

And now you think you deserve the ARF? Sheesh....



MissA, and the Freestyle will be around. Maybe put the gear back in the PBXL....or say to heck with it and go to the lake.

I think I'll get one too. I didn't know they were coming out with a trainer for pylon racing. It would be good to warm up with before flying the real race planes. Pushing a box car around the poles would be challenging though.

Desert Toad,

I just like to root for someone who is actually in the race...Oh the bear did race last year (kindof)....my bad....

Anyway...hopefully you'll get her soon....Let us know when you do so the "Dago Brothers" can get their orders in....

Starting to blow the dust off a couple of the toys....Looking forward to the big M day get together....

Desert Toad,

Oh forgot to mention something.....couldn't believe what happened today....out in the backyard and heard a very loud noise inside the house....when I got in the house I found that my "Bear Beer" #243/500 signed by Lyle etc. exploded all over the dinning room....and I mean all over (maybe it didn't like the conversations I've been having with you on this forum).....no kidding...couldn't believe it!!! That was a $20 donation to your plane down the drain....

That's not a good sign, could it be an omen of things to come. Mine didn't have a chance to blow up because I drank it and just kept the bottle.As I recall it gave me heartburn. Maybe TUMS should sponsor the bear. DagoNbr4 could you please tell me who broke the 500 mark last year in the gold race?

Don't feel bad, I had one of my bottles blow up about a month ago. Apparently while we were on vacation the house got a little hot so the bottle blew up. Still have 3 bottles in the fridge and the signed lable of the broken bottle was salvagable.

What did you use to save the label....was trying to come up with a way of doing that without fading it etc...how were you able to salvage yours?

Fastfastdago,

I do believe the only 500+ MPH lap speed to date (set last year at 504MPH if I remember correctly) was a Red Mustang...but I can't seem to remember the name. Can you refresh my memory?

Desert Toad,

You might recall who that was....

The label was still moist so we peeled the broken glass off the back and then pressed it onto a picture frame glass and then epoxied another piece of glass on top (epoxy on the edges, not on the lable). Came out great, will it fade? I have no idea, just keep it out of florescent and sunlight, should be fine.

You could also go to a craft store and get some Decopage (sp) which is used to laminate paper/cloth onto wood for home made decorations...it was popular in the 70's and 80's don't know if it's available today.

Thanks for the advice....will give it a try....

Sounds like you've been to Reno yourself. We've all enjoyed them for the last 25-30 years as well....

bottle 401/500 here.

Dear desert load;
You stated that "I've been rooting for the bear, even though it's the underdog." I thought you always rooted for "Miss America". Is your last name Kerry. Did you vote for the 87 billion before you voted against it?

Yeah, I've been going since my dad took me in 1971. Wish I could say I have made it every year but I was in the military and sometimes couldn't make the trip. I have 12 pins on my hat so...must be about that many times at least.

I'm a big fan of the Rare Bear and hope it can stay healthy through Sunday this year. Dago is tough to beat, but then it hasn't been pushed recently.

See you there, Here's what I look like plus a pic of my wife...she was picking up the beer for me and got to see RB qualify (made her a fan! Woohoo!):

fastfastdago,

Is that an ARF or did you build it? I'm slowly building up a "squadron" of Reno Racers. Hope to have them all before I die.

I have Royal Bearcat finished as Pardue's Bearcat. Just needs graphics (and, sad to say, has been that way for 4 years - other things keep coming up)
I have a ModelTech ARC Mustang which, after some mods, will become Dago Red
I have a Royal Bearcat that was going to be turned into Rare Bear, but with the ARF coming out, looks like I'll do Conquest One instead
I have a GP Mustang and Lear Jet that will become Miss Ashley 2. Not as scale as the others but should be cool anyway
I have a Top Flite P-39 which will be Mr Mennen
I have 2 TF Sea Fury kits - one for Critical Mass and the other for September Pops
Hope to get a G&P Tigercat for Big Boss Man

Like I said...hope to get them done before I'm dead (I'm a slow builder and get sidetracked by other projects very easily)...LOL

Very Nice, that's the World Models ARF, right? I was looking at that but since I have the Modeltech P-51, I figured I would go that route. Now that I think about it, I may do Miss America out of the Modeltech ARC since it's closer to stock and get the Dago ARF. Hmmmm...gee thanks!

I forgot about the EZ Voodoo...gotta get one of those too

I actually like the old "uncluttered" paint job better. I absolutely hated the new paint when I first saw it, but I guess it's growing on me.

I didn't like the new paint job either...but I've really come to like it a lot over time.....

EZ Voodoo would be a great plane!!! I was thinking about that one myself but already have 2 EZ Mustangs...

Finishing up on a world models Intruder 90 for memorial day weekend....looks to be very fast....

Have you started either of your TF Sea Fury's? I've had mine in the garage for over 2 years and finally sent it off to a friend to finish it for me. Really like the look of the Sea Fury's but just can't get the time to build one. Wish there was a high quality Sea Fury ARF out there....Would love to have a September Fury in the collection.....
