Did you notice the "Accurate Scale Models" ?
Revision 2 of box art???
Wonder if that is a name for this scale as they all didn't have identical wingspans that scaled down to a 20" wingspan at approximately 1/20th scale...
The proportions on some are not quite accurate but they are close enough to give the looks/recognition. More than some of the other aircraft being sold as scale models by other companies.

There was a discussion of the scale and size being pretty much stretched to the same planform...just like Ace did in their simple series.

Here's the prototype of the P-38. I would hope this could be revived. I was supposed to get a beta kit for evaluation and that never happened.

It could have been nice... It looks like it's RET too! Boy, if ever a plane cried out for ailerons!
Nice size too. Maybe someday...

that's how they started out. Later on they came up with some basic RTF and ARF kits. Parkzone brick is too lightweight to handle these, they are considerably heavier (2-3x)

That is a basic FF model.

Guys, the website is very basic right now so be patient.
