Steelworker for THE largest steel producer in North America USX aka US Steel. But that's neither here nor there. I need some help. A few days ago a fellow from Montgomery Alabama had a Bud Nosen P51 for sale. We agreed to make the deal at joe nall and now I can't locate his phone # . I have transportation all set up and of course the money is there also. We just need to connect. Any help ?
He pulled his ad so fast after talking with me I didn't write down the particulars. Maybe RCU could Help ?

Thanks Capt. Dan

Started flying free flight & control line mid 50's. First R/C 1958 (Rudder Bug)
Was drafted in the Army 1966 and had my Asian vacation.
Went back to the family farm for 50+ years.
Lost a 33 year old son due to a sudden electoral heart problem...but left me with a spitin-image grandson.
Farmed a few more years and wife and my health forced us to retire and still enjoy living out here and full time modeler now.

Heavy equipment operator if its got tires or tracks i can pretty much run it.   I'm  trying to get into cranes the closest i seem to get to the seat is with a wrench or a grease gun most time or to warm them up in the morning, sometime the operators let me get a litte stick time though
