PB models have taken on the Funfighter range of kits that were first
introduced by Cambria in the 1980's. The range consists of a Focke-Wulf
190D, ME-109, Spitfire, Mustang and a new model to be brought into the
range is the Kawasaki Ki-61 'Hien' (Tony). All models are for 25-36 size
engines and construction is very basic being of balsa sheet fuselage
and tail feathers with foam veneer wings, transparent moulded canopies
are also included with the kits.



Anyway, enough of the jibba jabba, mine arrived today. Ive gone for a
P51 'tang and should be building over the next few weeks when I need a
break from the 50cc Raven I'm assembling.



As you will see from the pics it was all very, very well packed
 
Photobucket




But I cant work out what them two bits are for?
 

 
Rest looks like this

Well if your not to busy
 
To be honest Im going to give it a crack myself, what could possibly go wrong??
 
Just need the new roof on the workshop then its full steam ahead, ARTF on bench 1 this on bench 2.
 
Im hoping some of the forum members will have built one over the pervious 30 years they have been in production and I can get some pics of colour schemes as im torn between a scale job, reno racer style or Pink!

Pink may be a good idea if we have 20odd up at the shows!

Progressing very well.
Can there be any modeller who doesn't put the bits together half
way through a build to see how it looks.
The fuselage planing & sanding stage is always very satisfying -
when an aeroplane shape emerges from a balsa box.
 
Must get on with that FF Spit. sometime.

BB are the sides lite ply or balsa, it is difficult to see from the pics but it looks like balsa with an internal ply doubler just like the older kit
 
Looking good
Cheers
