"Attached are photos of my recently completed Jimmy Allen Special. It is shown with full embryo regalia. I took it to the field for the first time last week and am still in the process of trimming, but it definitely flies and shows a lot of potential." - Mark Fineman
"Seven year old Aaron Narance is holding the Easy Built "Jimmy Allen Special" model ready for the 2009 contest season at the Cleveland Free Flight Society. The model was built by Aaron and his father, David Narance of Galion, Ohio. The Junior Birdman is wearing his grandpa's Navy flight helmet and is awaiting the signal to turn into the wind and launch all aircraft!" - David Narance
"Greetings from France. I think this bird flies very well." - Jean Marc Morin
"Our Jimmie Allen Special and Ritz both fly well in the southern hemisphere too - Many hours of fun had and being had by both myself and the kids!" - Toby Wetherill
"Just a quick note to let you know what an enjoyable experience building the Jimmie Allen Special was. Being my first experience with tissue covering and having spent the last 10 years of my career as an auto CAD draftman I scaled it up to a 30 inch wingspan. I'm not new to modeling and have 4 WWI quarter scale airplanes under my belt. ... I used Minwax clear [to seal the tissue]. I was real happy with the results as it brushed on like dope and doesn't contribute to any shrinkage. I flew my Jimmie Allen Special yesterday. It flew like a champ. It was a bit windy so I'm only up to 300 winds. I did have to move the wing forward 1 inch to achieve the center of gravity, so I had to reposition the dowels before I went to the field." - Warren Niffenegger
