New Sophisticated Lady ARF from Tower Hobbies


The big brown truck showed up today.

Anyone seen this new ARF marketed as one of the Carl Goldberg Classics?

I've built a couple of these from kits over the years and couldn't resist buying this. After close inspection of all the parts, this thing looks absolutely flawless and is almost a work of art in craftsmanship IMO. Can't wait to get her flying!

I fell in love and I was ready to order, but the shipping + tax to Norway cost more than the model. To much for me now.

Hey Hoss, I bought SL kit (laser cut version) and will probably start the build on it before my Merlyn. I know that you modified the tail feathers on your ARF. Could you post some pics of the mod?
