I like this aeroplane. It reminds me of less a thoroughbred warrior than an agile skirmisher who can overcome the dumber thugs. For a long time, it didn’t hit my workshop, but now, due to delays in other projects, I took it for a quick build.

  • Advantages: logical design of kit parts, very good fit;
  • disadvantages: trailing edge and parts cleaning (this can be a problem only for beginners).

Range of modifications you can see on the photos – fuselage surface details and wing trailing edge sharpening at the cost of losing the wing undersurface texture.

Control panel is aftermarket from Yahu. I scratchbuilt various little details like the tail skid, rods in the Townend ring, step, riveting.

Painted with various paints, main camouflage colour is Bilmodel.
