Anyone have an up to date link to Collect-Aire Models, the one I have jumps to a page which says the website has expired.

It would appear they did not renew their Internet Domain name.

Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Collect-Aire is Tango Uniform. IIRC he ceased trading at least two years ago.

Sorry Greg, all I can see is the little white square with the red cross though it.

What the...? :-\

That is, strangely, one of the weirdest aircraft I've seen... Not in a bad way, just weird... I think it's the Tomcat front end that does it.

Originally it was a single seater, it is one of my design ideas for an 'ultimate' Reno Racer.  Then I thought it would be too much fun not to have someone with you ----  ;D

I've got a couple of those Esci 1/12 F-16 cockpit/seat kits which will be made to fit in it.
