    Looking for a kit cutter that can work off of a plan.

    Does anyone know of a good kit cutter that can work off of (and possibly enlarge) a digital plan I provide them? I had that guy Cornell Michaels cut me a 120" Ta-154 but he took two years to get it to me. I don't know what is up with Kit Cutters but their site has said that they are not taking new orders for a couple years now.

    I am looking at enlarging the vintage Berkeley Buster plan to a 60 or maybe even a 1.20 size. Anyone have some leads for me?

    Thanks. -Chris

    I'm going to have this place cut my next project, a Ziroil P-47. I talked with Alex and he seems to be a stand up guy.

    Thanks for the tips guys. Bob from LDS PM'ed me and he can get me the kit I want. He has better plans too, a 61" Bill Effinger Buster. Bob says that W.E technical services is supposed to have the cowl and I have contacted them, but have yet to hear back.

    So.......does anyone know someone who could make a fiberglass cowl from a plan, lol? I will shoot Fiberglass Specialties an email.

    I just ordered a kit to be cut from http://a-mmodels.com/, Alex seemed nice through out or emails, the turn around time is pretty fast and the price seemed to be fair. I will update you guys once I get my kit from them and let you know how it goes.

    I just wanted to give you all an update on my order from http://a-mmodels.com/. All I can say is that I am extremely happy with the results from these guys, I got way more than what I thought I was going to get. When I ordered the short kit all I expected was the formers, bulkheads and wing ribs, what I got was damn near the whole kit. I have no complaints and would recommend them to anyone who is looking to have a kit cut from plans...
