The Tony Nijhuis Boeing B-50


We brought news of Tony Nijhus’ massive Boeing B-50, one of the largest electric powered models in the world, last year and we’ll have Tony’s full account of the project in the next (June 2010) issue of RCM&E.

Popping down to see him and photograph the model last week, we were joined by a freelance national news reporter so you may see the model appearing in the national press in the not too distant future. Here he is getting some snaps…..

As you can see, the 19ft span, 80lb model requires the appropriate transportation arrangements….

….and a few cells to get airborne!
