BMI Mini Tiger Moth

I saw this beautiful mini Tiger Moth last week in a hobby shop in Southern Spain. It looked like it was very, very well built- almost irresistible. It has a 26" WS and comes arf. It is advertised as an indoor/parkflyer. Do any of you guys own one of these? Wanted to hear some inputs before I go buy it. Here's a pic. The hobby shop here wants 60 EUR for it, what do you guys think?

It looks just as nice in person, I was just hoping to get some input from some one who already owns it. I think I'll take a chance and just buy it. Maybe I should have posted this in the park flyer forum.

BMI is the manufacturer, I guess this model is kind of new . Otherwise, this thread would be filled with a whole bunch of opinions by now. I don't think BMI (where ever they are from) have a website. I would take this thread to parkflyers, but then I would get flamed for posting about the same thing on different forums. so...

Yup, that's too bad, I'm picking mine up today. I'll post some picks for you guys, but probably in the park flyers forum since this model seems to be too big for this forum.
