Nice job. Looks like thin airfoil? Was this just a fun model or for racing of some sort?

what a fantastic build. she looks absolutely stunning. can't wait to see some flight footage. I'm currently modding an old PZ Spitfire into a Reno racer. not exactly on par with this project, but a racer nonetheless.

There were several Spits readied for racing, and they look really nice in civvie color schemes too!

I'm officially finished with Precious Metal, unless I feel like going bonkers with any more details...

Mark will you hand toss her or fly it off a dolley?

Can't wait to see her in the air.

Thanks Mark,

Yes it was built for our local 1/12 scale racing class. It has a W.S. of 30.5" and only 165 sq. in. It turns a 9x5 on 60% nitro. Airfoil is a SD6061 at the root transitioning SD6062 at the tip. It flies fantastically and is surprisingly well behaved slow. Here is another picture to give you an idea how small it is.

Your PM turned out fantastic! Can't wait for the snow to melt so we can see some vid!

Bill, if you look at the underside pics, it has generous handhods in the cores with ply spars front and back, so I will just throw it

Alien, very very cool. I suppose the guys will want me to draw one up soon, but I would rather do the Sorceress

Larry, thanks! Don't think I will do a polished metal job soon. Bare metal , ok, polished? UGH!

Mark, that thing is really pretty, great job. Awesome job on the rivets.

If you end up drawing a Tsunami I have some graphics files you can use.

Thanks, but there are some really NIIIICE models in that catagory. I'm happy just to show, to win anything would be a bonus.
Gotta start thinking about next year already!
