Not Pond Racer but...
There's a group slowly rebuilding the Tsunami: a scratch built but otherwise rather conventional racer built around a Merlin.

Oh yes!  :thumbsup:

I saw the Tsunami being re-built at Crystal Airport nr Minneapolis some years ago now, some time in the early 90s maybe? It looked to have been SERIOUSLY bent!

Yeah, the Tsunami is sweet! Another idea that holds promise (at least as a whif, but not in reality) is the Bell & Ross racer.

I doubt I could complete two builds, but that one looks nice too.

Hmm...well the first attempts at vacuforming have been unsuccessful. I can't get the plastic to adhere to the molds down to the bottom of the part. I have an idea I'm going to try, we'll see how it goes.

Here are the 3D printed parts smoothed and ready for vacuforming:

First attempt at vacuforming. Not so good, these parts are pretty much unusable:

Jeepers, that looks like a winner already!  :thumbsup:

Why not just glue the 3D parts together and call it the model?
