Bearcat Racer...

Recommended Posts

...so I've been gone awhile and decided to come back.

For those who don't remember me I thot I'd need to

prove that I do actually build (tho incredibly slowly)

This is my last LSP, Trumpeters F8F-2 as the first

winner of the Reno Nationals Unlimited Division in 1964,

known as Smirnoff 80. I made the decals myself.

Thanks men !

 

Hey Kevin, my old account would be great, would I

have access to the Trader board then ?  :please:

 

 

Looking back, I guess I never should have left. :sorry:

 

All done! I've merged your old account into your new one, which means your new account owns all the posts and whatnot from your old one. Just remember to use the new one to continue to log in with!

Super!, thank you sir.

 

 

 

Mike , I hope you won't mind if I add this video interview with the pilot of this beauty Mr. Mira Slovak.

 

Yeah Martin, I met him back in 1965, a very cool guy, and quite dashing

in the eyes of this kid. He was younger back then too.

Hi Mike, welcome back indeed, and what a way to return to LSP, bringing this wonderful Bearcat, and it's white, never seen it in this "livery", but looking very very good.

 

cheers,

Jack.

Here's one of the few color shots from then...

I tried to improve the contours and look of the cowling by taking a bunch of meat

off the upper front and by adding a lip inside and then radiusing the front edge of

that.

I think it helped some...
