Hey Kirk,
I hope one of those kits was a Summit I (the original), I've always loved the lines of that plane and Ivan flew it really well (he won the '85 hats with it).
THANKS for sharing!

RE: Making Molds of Classic Pattern Plane Fuselages & Parts to Keep them Alive for all of us to Enjoy!

Wolfgang Matt did design a successor to the Arrow: it was called the Granat and was ~10% larger than the original Arrow, but appeared to be essentially the same planform. Since he flew the Arrow at...
