Now that the reality of the 55 cm F1D is upon us I have decided to add this page to the Cloudbuster web page so that we can have a forum to share information about these  models. I will publish any and all information that I can find or is submitted to me regarding this subject. I will include as many plans and pictures as possible, some will be actually on this page and others links to where they are located.
