Indeed, there are several similarities.

Yea,

I saw this model too a week ago or so. The fuse reminded me more of the Beetle given the shape of the canopy and sub fin plus the inverted engine mount. But the fuse color and canopy yellow trim certainly have Blue Angel overtones. The wings are actually very similar to several later pattern classics not the least of which the Mystic but the forward tapered stab looses that resemblance.

The lack of fixed tips on the stab and fin break with the classic look too but otherwise probably a fun model to fly. It would probably do well with a pumped inverted 45/46 (YS/OS) but what happened to the pipe!? That muffler sticking out is an eye sore!

Very nice! Great to see another ARF available for Classic. Maybe if sales are good they'll make a .60-.65 size that is retract ready.

And put a duct in the fuse bottom for a pipe!

Who knows, maybe it's already there!

That's it, the Beetle style canopy is what was throwing me off.

I wonder if it has wheel wells for retracts? I haven't seen a picture of the bottom.

Interesting. Tower does not have information on the plastic covering brand or where it is made yet, but the info here is showing ORACOVER.

Jim,

Does the box say where it is made?

It seems like from the wing area and span that it is a more of a 60 size aircraft than a 46 size.
