Paul Fisher is turning out some truly outstanding model airplane kits.  He also has a line of race cars which I am sure
are every bit as good as these airplanes are.  They come with a minimum of ultra high quality cast resin parts. The
kits are broken down in a manner where few parts are needed to achieve a great result.  This could not be done with
a traditional plastic kit.  Canopy cast clear resin.  Some photo etch parts and decals complete the package.
The kit is expensive, but the parts are virtually hand-made and worth every penny.
