Semi scale aerobatic ARF kit is complete as bought new and parts have been unwrapped just to show them and the finish which is highly decorative.
56” span for 46 2 st or 50 to 60 4 st engines but there is plenty of room for conversion to electric if wanted.
The airframe is laser cut balsa and ply with a fibreglass cowl and wheel spats as shown in the photos. Construction and gluing looks good as you would expect from a laser cut kit. Wheels, undercarriage, bearers and tank and other hardware together with assembly instructions are all included in the kit.
There are 3 splits in the wing and 2 on the fuselage covering due to rough transit handling – it looks like impact damage inside the kit box caused the tight covering to split. All are cosmetic as the underlying construction does not appear to have been damaged. I have taped over with almost invisible diamond ultra clear tape – as advised by Al who I bought the kit from. I believe the model is flyable with the tape as shown. Photos show these. None of these affect the structural integrity of the model.
A reluctant sale but my interests have moved over to building vintage planes from plans.

John if you’re selling this then may I suggest putting an ad in the BMFA Classifieds? You’ll probably get a better response from that ‘arena’.

problem is trying to estimate a reasonable price for an out of date item which I have had for a long time.
Generally I have been pleasantly surprised at the prices I have been getting for my items and certainly well above my estimate.

I had one of these, it was very well constructed and looked superb. Powered with an SC70FS it was extremely agile, had neutral stability but docile at low speeds. I sold it after I lost the sight in one eye and didn't think I would be able to cope with it (this was a mistake) but I've now moved on to other types. I'd recommend it to anyone wanting a light sports model.
