There has been some talk recently regarding the bruce satra/ bob roach r985 and r1830.
Firstly have to add Ron Harris from the UK. Who I believe was building the r1830 you will find on the Internet.http://www.modelenginenews.org/prod/r1830.html
I had the pleasure of speaking with Bruce on a number of occasions. I purchased all my r1830 castings from Bruce. The r985 castings come from Bob roach who had a set (minus heads) that belonged to Bruce. The drawings and carbon prop blades came from Bob. When Bruce's health deteriorated Paul Knapp took over the project. This is where I got the r985 head castings from.
I have made a start on the r1830 all be it slow progress.
