Welcome back to the hobby KAM. I don't think CARBS is around anymore but I could be wrong, I went to their contest around 6 - 7 years ago maybe and it wasn't very well attended. I remember Vern, he built some amazing stuff but haven't seen him in ages. Anytime I was in Dayton I'd try to make time to visit "The Hobby Shop" on 725 is it? Real busy street with a mall and all that. Great store but I've heard they're down to R/C stuff, whoop dee do. They used to have tons of kits and the best selection of detail parts I've ever run across in hobby shops around here (I live in Cincy).
