I am building my second Miles Reed Solution X from plans. I am looking for cowl, canopy and landing gear.
Is Dave Dessecker still doing Miles Reed designs?

Can you help?

I built a few Miles' originals, he coached me through my first build and at that time his plans indicated a built up balsa cowl, been building cowls up in balsa ever sinse. The landing gear was nothing more than 1-1/4 x 5/16x2" length aluminum stock trimmed and bent to shape, a green tinted 2 liter ginger-ale bottle makes a decent canopy, you just have to cut it out at the right place, I've done a couple and nobody even notices.

was in touch with Dessecker last year, and it seemed there was still some kits and parts available.
