Default 1/2 Size Pattern? Orion, Taurus, Astro Hog kits

Want a pint-sized Pattern model? Well, BMJR Model Products has just the kit (or three) for you!
http://www.bmjrmodels.com/catalog.cf...%20Kits&ID2=rc
In addition to 1/2-sized "Old Timers". Texaco and Nostalgia Free Flight, they've recently announced 3 half-sized Pattern models, from the early days of R/C aerobatics. Made for modern electric in the "400" range, they are;
Ed Kazmirski's Orion R/C design, now a 36" wingspan, 194 square inch model.
Also by Kazmirski, the 36" version of his Taurus design.
Last but far from least, Fred Dunn's Astro Hog, 36" w.s., 294 square inches. This should end up looking a lot like my avatar, although I didn't build mine from a kit, it was scratch-built from the current SIG plans, scaled down.
All three are designed for electric, and scaled down by Paul Bradley. Kits are laser-cut and contain hardware.
4-point rolls, Cuban 8's and whatever else you can think of!

Ron,

Did you ever wind up building the 'Hog from BMJR?

Thanks,

Frank
