Further Description/Back Story

I stopped modeling about 35 yrs ago because of a move and the hobby stores started closing around me. I started this model at the end of that time and it hung in my garage, just uncovered framework all that time. I looked around and found all the finishing parts for it recently, which gave me the bug again [BAD], it needed a little re-gluing, but everything came out amazingly straight.
Also, since I started getting my subscription again, i see Rich Uravitch is still plugging away. My point is, I found an issue of M.A.N. Jan 1993 that had plans for his Extra 3.25 that I am scratch building now. Rich used to advertise a cowl, wheel pants and a clear canopy for sale that he made, and I was wondering if by any chance he had anything left for that plane I could use in my build. If this is possible [I know its a long shot after 30 some yrs] please e-mail me with a price. I would love to have some parts on my plane from Rich. Thanks for a great magazine. Also, how do we get people to start kit-building again? The selections are far to few to choose from nowadays.
