    Default Matt Jackson's American Spirit racer today?

    Taigh Ramey from Stockton posted on the WIX board today a couple of views of Matt Jackson's custom Unlimited project, The American Spirit, as apparrently seen very recently at the Sanders' facility.

    See under this thread:

    More ME-262, N3N B-23 etc from Sanders

    or at:

    http://warbirdinformationexchange.or...9a4f938f4b16b1

    Not much if any external progress since the last views published.

    Matt, can you give us a refreshed update and timetable? What race number do you have reserved, and has the color scheme been settled on?

    Dennis has been busy desiging the nose gear box and pivots for the nose gear. Once that's completed the plane progress will pick up a bit.

    Skyracer, you wouldn't dislike a P-38, P-39, or P-63 showing up to race would you?

    Matt's racer should be extremely fast. fascinating, and fan-magnetic. Don't worry about a little nose wheel. You won't see it when its out on the course anyway.

    What about the pony express, wasn't that a nosedragger? And let's not forget Big Bossman.
