Here's the article I read this morning. I looks like he died on November 26th.

Quite a career!

Bob was an Avid R/C modeler, he designed models of the Shinden and the Viggen, the latter of which I drew the plans for his magazine article.

I met Bob in the 90's at the Superman jet rally when I was into R/C jets had some very interesting talks with him,  Sad to see He's passed
