yes, I have a few of the 71 monogram and a few of the (UUGGGHHH), monogram AAR cuda. was fitting pieces from the AAR onto the 71, then gave up. with a little patience, I think you can come up with a fairly neat, reputable build. I would save a lot of money if I went that way instead of buying the new release.
Al, Hobbylinc.com has the 70 Cuda on special today yet for $17.xx
thanks Ben, I will check it out.
