Default Circus Hobbies in Las Vegas



Anyone here remember Circus Hobbies?

They closed quite a few years ago. There was a red low wing plane hanging from the ceiling straight down from the entrance it had nacelles at the end of the wings. I've tried to find that same plane kit, Only kits back then. (about 1988) anyone remember it? or have an idea what it may have been? it was just a Sport model about 60 size (if I remember right?) I have tried to find what it was ever since..

I too remember them. I was never able to go there in person, but did order a lot through snail mail. They had some really good deals now and again.

Buzz.

I need to make my description a little better.

It was a single engine low wing. The Nacelles were at the wing tips and looked like small torpedos. (I thought maybe they were extra fuel tanks?)

I'm kinda thinking maybe someone did a kit bash. Ohh well, it didn't hurt to ask.

Thanks for the replies guys.
