    How about Ambroids? That is what all of my Ultra Sports were built with. It is water proof, fuel proof and sandable.

    N410DC, I think Tower still has the US40 and 60 kits. You may want to get one while you can and save back if you can not find an ARF. These were all pretty easy to build and a self build one...
