Does anyone have any information on this GMP Cricket JetRanger Fuse? The guys said he possibly purchased the fuse in 1985...Does anyone know the manufacture?

As far as I’ve ever known, the only color offered by GMP, other than the stock silver one, was the black and gold custom version.
You could have the other skid anodized to match the rest of the parts you have. I’m finishing up an Hirobo Schweizer 300 and I had all of the small silver aluminum parts anodized black to match the frame and landing gear. It cost me about 75 bucks, but it was worth it.

I dont think the Jet Ranger fuse was made or sold by GMP (or at least I cant remember ever hearing about that) Maybe Robert can chime in here?

I worked in a hobby shop from ’79 through the demise of GMP, into ’06. Throughout the GMP years, they were the primary helicopter manufacturer that we sold. I never seen that fuselage offered by them. I have seen that fuselage offered new on eBay twice before though.

It's too bad they didn't think to have a mold made before building it. It would have worked on my machinery very well. Just a thought.

so someone back in the day had a vacuum forming machine and must have made a small run of these that were not distributed through the normal channels. Sorta like a paleo DarthDrk.
