wow finally a HE111 Model, 300 is still too much though IMHO. BUT please tell us more don't just tease us with two photo's, we need detailed photo's I'd never knew about this model so its a nice suprise.

What set-up will you be using on it, motor's, battery, esc etc and does it come with retracts? Also is the wing fully sheeted or open structure? One of my pet hates are 'Scale' ARTF's with an open structure wing, when in fact the full size was fully skinned.

BTW I see you are not so far from Old Warden, will you be taking the model there for any of the show? Or maybe Basingstoke e flyin in Sept?

It's still a lot cheaper than the Airworld HE-111. Last time I looked it was topping $900 for a 72" airplane. A little out of my $ to wingspan ratio.

Ill bet dollars to donuts that if that model will arrive in the USA it will have the BH models stamp on it.

BH has some very veeeeeeery interesting things in the pipeline for Hobby People!

This model is just out, It does have sheeted wings with cut outs for servos, retracts and comes with metal retracts,
I'm going to use Tornado Thumper 3548 motors with two 40 amp sc's and two Thunderpower 2200 extreme packs (one for each motor)

I will include more photo's soon.
I might change the retracts to look more scale, have to look into it when I start.
