Scott M.,

The new colors are VERY nice. Gorgeous.

Scott C.,

Those pictures are like two months old, what you been doing, changing diapers...

I just finished polishing this one, the clear went down really nice. The new gun and new technique helped, thanks Matias for passing along Lee V's tricks...

Just got my new wing and fuse kit, about to start my second Vortex kit for the Nats...Gotta give a huge thank you to Chuck Bridge, Smoke, and Marcus for getting this pristine bird to me as quick as they did.

G, why must you start such nasty rumors. That’s a Bird of Prey with a Vortex wing and tail (and fuse)…

He's BS'ing you dudes. That's not a BOP.. It's a Chuck Bridge special, and all proceeds are paying for next years Germany trip. Thanks for the support AJ..

No, the wing tip is unchanged, but one of the tips was dinged at the TE and I needed to put a little 1/4" radius on it. Still makes 500 squares, but it is close.

Neither new, but both nice flying planes.
