Hi everyone. Im new to the site and need a bit of help please.
I have recently saved a huge rc Mosquito from destruction after an abandoned house was being cleared by its landlord. Im trying to identify which kit it is and to get an angle on its value, which will then help me decide weather i restore it etc.

Could possibly be the Bryan Taylor one, possibly plan built

Hi Dylan. Ive just come to that conclusion. Apparently in the mid 1970's, so ive just discovered, Powermax made a short lived kit. This seems to be one of those. The fuselage and engine cowls are one piece fibreglass mouldings.

Thanks for all the information guys. Its definitely fibreglass one piece fuselage with fibreglass engine nacelles.

Shes far too big a project for me to tackle. Im unemployed so lack either the resources or the experience to get her sorted.
If anyone is interested and would like to make me an offer ill let her go to someone who can get her sorted out.

I am interested in the beast. Goodness knows where i would keep it but we can worry about that later. Would it be possible to have a few more photos?
