Terry, the list was a hurried job so it is by no means a complete list. The Miss LA, or Los Angeles does ring a bell I will see what I can find for you.

Maaannn you guys are killing me.  I gotta build one of these.  Thanks Bob for the list of a/c.  With 3 months I might have time to finish the dimer Monocoupe and get one done.  Right now I'm eyeing:

Art Chester's Goon,
Steve Wittman's Bonzo,
Howard's Racer IKE,
Keith Rider R1 "Suzy",
Wedell/Williams Racer Model 44,

I'm looking for a plane called Miss LA, or Los Angeles, something like that.  Bob, does this ring any bells?

Terry

The F7F was a racer?? I didn't know that. Does it need to be a race modified version? 'Cause that could be hard to find. You did mean the Tigercat, right?
