Thanks for the help but I'm looking for a 1986 version of the cowl so that I can build a boat from Roger Newton plans.

You have to be more specific when you come in here asking for things. It's not like there are only one or two people that make Miss Bud's.
Generally wanted "ads" are not allowed in the forums except for special exceptions which I get to determine (whoopty-doo). If you would have said that the boat was from Newton plans, that would have helped a lot in the first place.
Roger should have a list of people that make cowlings, decals and other parts needed for his plans or on the R/C Unlimited site.

Doing the '86 will make it tough, as it's a totally different design than the 87-89 cowl. Come to think about it, the T-1 hull is a real bear to build as well. With the rear picklefork and the multi-panelled sponsons, it's not a good boat for a beginner to build(don't ask me how I know that), so I hope you have some hydro building experience. I'm not counting a Dumas kit as experience either, since they are designed totally different than a Newton hull, not to mention considerably heavier. I can make a few calls and see what I can find, if you're really going to build this thing.

Not a problem. The 1986 T-1 cowling is very different from the 1987-89 T-2 and 1989 T-3 cowlings. The cockpit canopy is more rounded than the later version. The over-engine area is a totally different shape as well, so I discovered when I tried to build the T-1. I ended up starting a T-3, using a 1989 style cowling. If you haven't started building yet(or better yet, if Roger hasn't sent the plans yet), you might want to see if you can get the plans for T-2 or T-3 instead. I have access to 1987-89 cowlings, as well as the 1990-94 version. I also have access to the turbine exhaust and tail set, if you're interested. One other thing, DON'T GO TOO FAR ON ASSEMBLY WITHOUT THE COWLING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's much easier to fit the hull to the cowling when you're building than to retro fit later.

Hydro Junkie the 86 or the 87 cowl is fine. I'm very aware of the differences. I've studied many pics. I appreciate any help you can give.me. I don't care if I build the 86 or 87 I like both.
Thanks for responding to my post. I was kinda hoping you would respond to it. Once again thanks for any help you can give me.

Oh Ron, sorry for that. I'll try to remember the next time I post

Okay, here's the good news:
I found a source for the T-1 cowling, including clear windshield. He also has all of the tail set available(straight wing and vertical tails, no diamond wing)
Here's the bad news:
For the cowling and canopy alone is $150, but I forgot to ask if that includes shiping. I also didn't get a price on the tail set.
My source for the T-2/3 cowlings might not be as expensive, but you have to order the windshield separate, so either way you're looking a a C-note+
If you're interested, let me know and I'll PM you the email addresses and names of both sources

Hydro Junkie,
Very interested, though I have some questions. 1) Can you refresh my memory? what years were did the T2 & T3 run in?
2)Excluding the Exhaust, verticals and wing What would be the turn around time from both sources?
Thanks alot for helping me out

This is what I'm looking for

That's T-1, with a pickle-forked transom. It's identifyable by the flat cockpit nose and the white tails with red border in this picture.
T-2 was built over the winter of 1986/7 and ran through at least 1995
T-3 was first run in 1989, running as the Bud till T-5 and 6 were built. From what I've heard, it was sold and will be running this season
As far as turn around time, you will need to contact the manufacturers. Both are active racers, so you will be waiting till they have time available to lay the parts up. I can also tell you that at least one requires payment up front. If you're still interested, I'll PM you their addresses
