A beautiful kit - the prebuilt wing is the finest I have ever seen in a kit. If you order one be prepared for a BIIIGGG box- you won't hide this one from the missus. There was a review in EFI back in the spring. I have a video of the editor of EFI flying his version of this kit at Walsall fly-in during the summer. It would be a huge download - certainly more than 10mB - but if you would like to see what she flies like just say the word and I'll capture an AVI and email it to you.

Glenn,

Sorry, can't help to throw in a plug for the RBC kits Beaufighter, that I had the pleasure of designing for them. Check out www.rbckits.com .
Available in the U.S.A. via EAMC.

Max.

Dear Brian
I would certainly like to see the video. Would you care to post a link here. The large size does not bother.

Regards
Max

I don't have a website or anywhere to host the video at the moment, so I'm afraid it would have to be attached to an email rather than as a link. I'll capture the video later on today and let you know how big a file it will be.

cheers

Brian

Thanks for the info guys, my favorite plane to fly right know is the Kavan Partenavia. So I want to try another twin. Max, your kit looks great! Now I really want one. but don't want to tackle a kit from the ground up. I remember building a couple kits( rubber power) when I was a teen. They looked ok till I covered them. I CAN"T COVER. So I don't want to spend alot of time I don't have building it only to ruin it when it came time to cover it.
So I'd have to go with HL's kit. Sorry Max. Thanks again

Sorry chaps I never managed to get the file downloaded in the run-up to Christmas. Anyhow I've done it now - it's 9.5mB, three minutes long, that is the complete flight, no sound. If anyone would like it emailed to them just let me know and I will cc it to those interested.

cheers

Brian
