I wasn't planning on building this just yet (wnw kits are calling me!) but seeing the new GB, it's hard to resist. NKR's long OOP 1/32 resin kit of Burt Rutan's Pond Racer. This kit is extremely basic and quite rough with it's afir share of air bubbles and flash, so depending how much the kit cooperates, I may build this with the vac canopy painted black in place of scratchbuilding a cockpit. In the box, only an extremely basic control panel and (oversized?) seat are included.

Brilliant choice for sure. Will be following with great interest as I've admired and been a Burt Rutan fan for years. A while a go I was doing a bit of research on Burt and I discovered he worked for Jim Bede, another aeronautical maverick and genius.

Some of the RC and Gamer folks have done some what-if paint jobs if you google pond racer. This one's below is my favourite.

Looking over the kit more closely, I'm closing the build now, with so many other projects of interest right now, i don't think it's realistic that I'll ever finish this one.  Have offered to Hubert (MostlyRacers) and if he doesn't want it, i'll post it for sale on LSP
