But don't be tempted by their pilots - what they lack in incompetence with their spinners they make up for with their pilots. I think they used my grandson as a model and he's only five weeks old

I've heard it all now!! 'The long walk' justified by the flying skills (or lack of) a latex bust of a WW2 Luftwaffe fighter pilot!!

So are you saying Roger's latex pilot was unable to safely bring his bird back to base?

Drat! I have the same guy sitting on the workbench awaiting the arrival of his new fighter. He also has his own nosecone as well.

I'm saying the opposite!! .. The landing pattern/approach and runway vector had little..correction... nothing to do with said latex pilot. But, it/he did fly well.... Lack of undercarriage is a deciding factor too. ,, Still, at least Roger has a glider to fly, Unike some, not a million miles from this keyboard.

Here's my latest. Just another Me-109. Since I'm in the desert, I went with the two-tone brown scheme of JG27. Fritz has been reassigned from an Fw-190 to the Me-109.

My FW190 in its finished form. Added the Parkzone spinner before its second flight yesterday.

It flys better than it looks. A great plane and great kit.

I went back to school here. Wile waiting for the adapters to arrive for the F-15, I brought out a slope soarer Corsair I had "for a rainy day." Even though it hasn't rained here since March, I decided to get with the build. When the adapters came, the Corsair got placed back in the box. I decided to finish her and it took about 2 days (one to build, one to paint and finish). Maiden today and she flew like the proverbial "on rails." No trim needed, rock solid climb, carving turns. A pleasure to fly and a treat for the eyes.

It was really nice to see this GWS "RED BULL" Mustang in flight....a far cry from about 3 years ago with GWS Brushed Motors and Sanyo AAA-size, 720mAH, Ni-MH's!!!

This model certainly has lots of zip for zest appeal.

So everyone knows....TurboDriven was the one who built and painted this beauty and recently sold it to Gerry (Simano) Very nice paint job!

Thanks for those kind words....I am reviving my GWS Mustang "SUE" and she will fly with the same power setup, RX etc......

Gerry flew his RED BULL at Moon Port Modelers RC Club in Titusville, Florida, a super nice Club with just the best RC Membership you could find.
