Hope this one will make a good warbird trainer!

One major thing that could stop beginners will be the lack of parts though.

No foam parts listed yet although I'm sure they will have replacement cowls and props for the plane soon.

Someone just received their Mustang in the other thread. Hope the retracts are great!

This one seems to have as much wing loading as the P-51 which is slightly more than the Corsair & more so than the P47 for A t-28 I do find this surprising.

Wow!! At long last... There has been serious lack of T-28 Trojan kits. I love the white/orange trainer scheme...never thought we would see one of these on the market.

Once again, Hobbyking is taking the big risks, developing new/innovative/original products.

Hey guys,
I do agree that the Durafly T28 is another superbly crafted unit, although, like others, some models are being beat to death a bit. I'm with "inspector5419", DEFINITELY! an FW190, & my unrelenting craving for a Hawker Tempest/Typhoon. My wallet is READY!!!!!!

Dont get me wrong I got nothing against the T-28
But there is not one good German fighter out there
nor is there a Tempest/Typhoon
There is oly one Hurricane, Windriders
how about some of the Dive Bombers
Its like going to a restaurant and the waiter ask
Are your ready to order
You can have the FISH or the FISH
Cash is in hand but give me something else

Ok I am off my soap box now.

Sorry Scott its not at you
You are doing a great JOB and we thank you for it

We has all this stuff planned a long time ago, it was inevitable that the more common models would be first....but this is the last of them for now, it makes sense to use the more common models to establish Durafly, I know what is coming.....you won't be disappointed.
