  1. Thanks for all your research, Scott. I think that your work is brilliant.
    And… by the way: A US Fighter/attack Projects? A “spin off” from the excellent APR.
    Yes, I’m a fighter enthusiast!

  2. RE: USBP13 and USLP01 addenda

    Scott, I’ve received your 3-4-15 Email concerning the corrected/installed scale drawings at the conclusion of the above issues. Having already ordered and received these issues in original configuration, I had disposed of the download instructions. Could you please Email these to me again so that I can download the issues in updated form?
