As a member of the Memphis Belle Society please do her justice!!!...Note my T-shirt from circa 1988 or there abouts...

She looks good so far!!!...I sure would like to have one of these models to show off to all of the clubs in the Memphis area as it would garner great interest I beleive...

Again, Keep up the great work!!!

Nice find Stuart. Not a big fan of the B17, and most of the affordable ones I have seen are laugh-your-a$$-off scale. This one definitely looks worth considering.

Jeff

Hey, BH...


Is this the same basic model referred to in the "SNEAK PEAK" thread in electric warbirds? That one you measured the wingspan at 64"...

why are the cowls yellow? Is that just for testing purposes?

I gather this is a different one from the '64 inch span' one that was shown a while ago? Are you still going to be offering that one as well?

Totally agree here as I just can not handle one More Large EPO Foamie that can not be taken apart for easy transport and I do not feel the FMS / Airfield P-51D Mustangs an easy take apart!

If you want to see this model, it needs to have the same attributes like the GLOW Balsa / Light Plywood in as far as the easy transport.

Otherwise, I do not see myself replacing my Good Gas mileage car with a Flat Bed Truck!

This verifies that you are not PETE!

Pete is the one that posted all kinds of pictures of the 64 inch!

Go back and see what your own company is doing before asking, please!
