      Hi Folks!
      It's been a while, but I have once again been going Connie Crazy...I've done up a full set of early 649 /749 type cowls with separate engines and cooling gills as well as both the cuffed Curtiss Electric props and the Ham Standards with spinners.

      I will be posting just the props as separate sets too on Monday .

      Another two new sets of later cowls with the smooth tops and long as well as short oil coolers are nearly done, so soon you will be able to model nearly every variant .Also doing the radar nose and cabin top for the short fuselage Heller kit so pop in to our website fishermodels.com when you can, and thanks to all of you for your continued support!

      Best Wishes from California!

      Hello Paul,

      Your previous Connie parts looked splendid, these look equally mouth watering, the casting look beautiful.

      I never quite liked Heller's Connie but I think it is time I try one.

      Paul-

      The engines shown appear to be for the L-049/L-149/C-69 only, none of which used Curtiss Electric props,(to my knowledge.) Are there any engine versions for the actual L-649/-749/C-121A available? Also, are the props available separately? Your stuff looks sweet!

      Very nice!

      I have built the Heller 1049G using Paul's engines, nose and flaps, as well as using his parts for the Revell-ogram B-58. I also have his 1/32 Grumman Panther nearly finished. His products are great to work with and I highly recommend them!

      Cheers,

      Dan
