That's what I was thinking....in all the videos I have seen, it doesn't fly like it is tail heavy...COG is what I am thinking.

Horizon has really done a great job on the detailing and overall build quality. I cant wait to see what the modders and painters do when they get their hands on it.

Is the mossy tail heavy with landing gear or without? Maybe the tail gear is too heavy.

Which movies are those? I'd love to see more as the Mossie is a beautiful aircraft! The only one I know of is 633 Squadron, which was filmed in England and Scotland and had a mostly (if not all) British cast, but was produced by an American company if I recall correctly.

My only gripe with that film is too many models and too many scenes repeated multiple times (Mosquito crashing in the fjords). Otherwise top notch.

Please let me know any others worth watching!

It seems like every time I go back they have more ultra micros in stock. Its a nice shop but its dangerously close to my work Robins hobby up on Glenoaks is pretty cool too. Its a bit smaller, but the staff are really friendly and knowledgeable.

Hey, you SoCal folks pray for rain all year and now that you have it you are complaining.

At least you have your Mossy. I'm still waiting.

You had a box? You were lucky. We lived for three months in a paper bag in a septic tank. We used to have to get up at six in the morning, clean the paper bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down t' mill, fourteen hours a day, week-in week-out, for sixpence a week, and when we got home our Dad would thrash us to sleep wi' his belt.

A paper bag? You were lucky. We lived in a discarded crisp packet in the middle of the M6. Had to get up before we went to bed to get to work on time, then worked a 23 hour day 7 days a week, and were grateful to get paid in potato peelings. What we'd have given for a Dad to thrash us to sleep.

I've spotted a market opportunity and I'm going for it.

Gents, I announce the launch of my new prestige range of "Almost ready to complain about" (ARCA) model boxes designed specificly for people who are incapable of opening a cardboard box...
