Incorrect link---ignor the link above it is for the FSK spit fire which although beautiful is of the same construction require twice as much work, and is not the new alfa by any means. Sorry wolfpack---just would hatee to see the guy order it thinking it was the alfa.

Strange that the Dora hasn't been added to the site yet?

Hey guys

The Alfa Spitfire's are in transit to us here at Hobby Lobby.

I just finished up the retract install on one and hope to shoot video tomorrow.

Here is a photo of the plane.

Looking good Mike.


Looks like she got posed in front of that classic Hobby Lobby web site backround, I guess I will be getting an alpha soon.

You can use the front half of the right sized ball point pen to simulate the cannons. Fast and easy, or spin a 3/8" dowl in a drill with sand paper and turn it to the correct dimensions.

Mike, this will be a great model with the retract thing. Looking forward to some video footage.

Yes, Alfa models are constructed in a similar manner...however the framing has been done for you...unlike the Scorpio Models.
