I saw the chaps who make them, flying them when I was in Austria over the summer - they certainly looked like they went well enough. I don't think you're going to be dissapointed...

I fondled one of these at Visalia last month...absolutely the best mold and finish quality I have ever seen. Felt stiff as an oak plank too.

The fit of the tail feathers to fuse, and the wings to fuse is perfect.

Ian, Ian, Ian - you're suddenly the guy with the latest and greatist toys. Very nice model. Any influences from Baudis with that model? The square ballast looks very familiar.

Happy Turkey day to you and yours.

Vic

I had to confess to Ian that Target and myself thoroughly groped his plane before handing off. It is a superbly crafted model... I cant wait to get my hands on her at Fermin....Get building, Ian.

HI Ian

I taught it doesn't look like the newer designs at all, fuse rather short and wing shape also a bit old style. Hope the price was ok?
Who is actually the manufacturer?

Good that they just used a similar name
