Mahoney Sorceress Biplane

Hey Guys, I have been looking at this plane a lot, and I really want to build one, but cant find any kits of it RC. I saw a kit for sale a while back of one, but havent seen anything of it since then.... This thing looks like a speed Demon!! It would be an awesome biplane... Anyone know of any kits??? thanks a lot
Kevin

Re: Mahoney Sorceress Biplane

ONE OTHER THING I WOULD LIKE TO TELL YOU IS THAT I HAVE MET LEE MAHONEY AND HE IS QUITE A CHARACTER.
HE LIVES SOUTH EAST OF PARKER AZ. WHEN WE HAD RACES AT PARKER HE WOULD COME TO THE RACES AND BRING PARTS FROM THE ORIGINAL PLANE (SPARE & EXTRA PARTS) TO THE RACE AND HE LOVE TO TALK ABOUT HE AND HIS FATHER BUILDING IT IN THIER GARAGE. ALSO IT WAS GOING TO BE POWERED BY A CHEVY 283 V8 UNTIL THE BIPLANE COMMITTEE FOUND OUT AND OUTLAWED AUTO ENGINES. IF IT HAD BEEN ALLOWED IT WOULDN'T HAD CHEEK COWLS AND AND REAL SLEEK NOSE.

Wow thank you so much for this information!!! that is so cool to hear about some history of the plane. I havent really had a racing plane before, so i am probably going to wait a while if i do get one. I will probably get a viper 500 and work my way up though. thank you so much for the info

short kit available

I came across your post while doing research on this plane. Don't know if you're still interested, Lazer Works is selling a short kit of the sorceress and the plans are available through Model Avaition plans service as Lee Mahoney Sorceress #50312.
