    It's a nice set of plans. It would be fun to see one built!

    I built a Peanut Scale Crackerjack from plans Pete gave me, many years ago. Never finished it, but it looked adorable. Brings back memories!

    And the full scale CrakerJack is nearing completion, perhaps. Plans have been updated for larger pilots.

    I'm sure it would have been an honor to have the great Walt Mooney model one's aircraft design! Besides that little FF model, Dennis Tapsfield, another well-known modeler back in the day, came up with a 1/3 scale R/C version:

    That's an incredible coincidence between Walt Mooney and Pete, fly2kads... guess what Pete's official nickname is at his home airport?

    Speaking of coincidences, Walt and Orion shared an office cubicle when Orion was starting out his career. There is some of Walt's wisdom floating around here.
