Another great event for Frank Tiano! I spent three days there and it was wonderful! However I missed the last round on Sunday - any word on who won the team event? I was absolutely sick when I saw Mike Selby's SAAB go in on Saturday - what a beautifully unique aircraft! But Mears' Thunderbird was awesome, too!

Is the T-33 a kit or scratch built?

It's annoying, the Internet exists to share information and a site the stupidly restricts information about a supposed competitor just doesn't get it. 

The other site has no issues with naming RCUniverse, why should they have the reverse issue?  We are all here to Build RC Scale models after all?
