Gorgeous !

So this one is also made by HC-HOBBY who already did the B25 (also sold under the ERc and Robbe brand).

The props look very similar to those of the B25, but this time they located the ESC out of nacelle into the wings.

Just hope they will make this bird a little faster than the B25 in stock config.

If these are the eRC guys, does this mean Hobby Lobby will be carrying this bird? That would be super.

Unfortunately (and I hate to be a detractor), it's not very scale. While if you squint it looks like a Mossie, you take a better look & notice the short, stumpy fuselage, the too large canopy & vertical fin, the air intakes under the spinners (only present in the later 2 stage merlins) utilised on late model recon & bomber versions and one type of night fighter.
On the other hand, it's not bad for a fun scale model & it seems to fly well.

Totally agree !! I had to do a lot of mods on the Blackhorse Mosquito to make it closer to scale, this one looks even worse..In my defense I am a Mosquito fanatic and a scale nut. This one will probably sell well, just a shame the manufactureres didn't go the extra mile and get it right......

That one is very sweet, Casor. Are those retract legs really wooden? Obviously they have held up pretty well. You have a build thread any where?

I have the semi-kit for the 43" Physics of Flight Mossie. With the experience I gained building the Balsacraft Blenheim, I may decide to tackle it soon, but British dual strut retracts are always an issue.

Regards,
Jeff
