superb work Dirk - great to see all the mould components laid out like that - a fantastic achievement - a labour of love!

... great to see all those parts finally together in one picture. yes

Not long to go now before getting the 'reward' of your first mould end pieces, Dirk.

As we say in Belgium: "Nen dikke proficiat, man". wink

Cheers

Chris

Wow.

How does the cost stack up for a scratch built model like this.

It really is glorious

Hi Chris, Thanks !

Hi Martyn, That's a damn good question !

I cant tell you exactly but halfway the build (airframe) i made a rough estimate and i must have spend around 1500 €. (I hope my wife dusn't read this).

The fuselage is going to cost a lot less,because i can use the moulds of my PSS model.

The real cost is going to be the motor ,esc,landing gear and electronics.

Let's hope i can sell a few kits,and get some money back .cheeky
