So it's been two years since Ken Brown died. I only recently learned of this and it's definitely a sad thing to see.

So no one has taken up production of these models, and there's nothing out there on how to recreate them. Can we start an effort to collect the plans for these models? Anyone have remnants of these kits, complete ones, etc? It seems a shame to let them die since QCR had a complete lineup of models for all of the NAR events.

I agree with you.  I was lucky to still have a few QCR kits still in the bag.  They are not of the more complex versions such as the bi-wing boost gliders.  It would be great to help preserve the designs and pay forward by continuing to make these great competition kits available for the next generation of competitors and enthusiasts.

John, shoot me an email and let's talk ideas for getting those models documented. Smile
