Hi,

i grew up in the 70s, looking in awe at some members models thinking i would love every one of them, bar flis, bullets, tornados, racketeers, gangsters a TItan and the odd curare.

I don't have a lot of building (or flying) talent, i bought a ripmax bullet, acquired a tissue covered Barfli, a DSM Aerostar kit and a Gangster 52 kit but i don;t really have a 1970s proper patternmodel i.e. Curare, Tornado, Magic etc.

The tornado is tempting because the kits are available but does it fly as well as the likes of a curare or Magic.

what would anyone recommend.?

Cheers

Graham

The Tornado makes a fantastic club model Graham, and it's not a complex build. As long as you have a supply of sharp razor plane blades that is!

+1 for the Tornado as well. Alternatively, have a chat with Steve Dunning - he pops up here quite often - he has a number of options available - and they are beautifully prepared and presented.
