Blue all the way.

Seriously I would be in as well. Not a fan of the current schemes.

Several months back I actually took a poll on what color Navy Scheme to make and the Red won that is the only reason I choose that one. As far as the uncovered or painted version at this time we are not making that. I got stuck with about 20 kits that we had to cover here in the states so we will not offer that anymore. Th next batch I will make some blue ones.

To answer C550IFR question yes this plane is very easy to fly the flying charecterisitcs have not changed, actually it go easier to land since it is a about 2-3 lb heavier so it makes it more stable in wind. The airplane still slows down to a crawl and flies very fast as well. This would be a great first jet many people have gotten there waivers with this airplane.
[&:] Get a blue one made if its possible and let me know, and ill have the money in your account! as soon as you confirm !. [&:] BTW the blue one really suits us down here since its the same color as our Flag, so i would call a Honduran Special edition ![>:].

I owed the V1 Orange and Gray and liked it, also like the white and red but that Blue beats them all for me. the same guy i sold mines too is who bought the blue one from Henry and Alberto.

Wow! I'm not a fan of that blue scheme at all.. Guess that's what makes the world go round. I agree with the poll.. Red & white navy was the best.. But now with the new "Yellow Sea Snake" edition.. Hmmmm

Dreamworks will be producing Pro-Link Gear sets for the new Tornado, we are working with Henry to have a set thoroughly tested and abused before the kits arrive.
Pricing should be inline with the current Falcon sets and packaged as we do our other offerings; Strut set, Basic Combo, Standard Combo (mechanical valves) and Deluxe Combo (electronic valves).
Based on the amount of emails I received requesting gear; I will make sure our first run has adequate quantities! We have considered offering the Modellbau kits at Henry's request; I have been very hesitant on stepping back in the "Kit Sales" arena again, been there and not sure I want to venture back down that path [:@]
I'll open this window a little and let you guys provide the input.... Do you want Dreamworks to begin offering select aircraft kits again??? There is another well known, well regarded kit manufacturer wanting us to be a dealer for their kit line.... If there is enough interest in us going this route again, I will consider some select brands to offer.

I missed what went wrong with your 1st venture in kit sales, but i can say dealing with you/someone I trust always makes me feel more comfortable. Especially when you inspect it & give your endorsement.. Not sure if I understood the question correctly, but that's my 2cents

I also do not know what went wrong with your first Kit venture, however you (Todd at Dreamworks) has always provided exceptional service. As has Henry at MBA
I think you two together could be a very powerful force in the business.

Correct me if Im wrong, but I think I remember Todd talking about some new turbine he was bringing to the market (Kingtech 80), that he tested & vouched was a good turbine.. At the time I was in a 100% Jetcat state of mind & I remember thinking "Why would he back them?"... Ever since then your track record has been excellent, & you've made a lot of good things available to us, not to mention good tips & techniques (for sure a solid go to guy).. Just hearing your considering being connected to Modellbau is great!...

Not to get into it deeply, but we where a very large Skymaster dealer in the past; among other aircraft. We had lots of issues although mostly due to the "supplier" at the time, not Skymaster.
I would have to be quite comfortable with the manufacturer to take aircraft on again, there is far more labor involved in kits!

If it is a new incarnation of Denis you may live to regret that remark I fear.

I say Navy Blue, or better yet a Blue version painted like the Yellow bird, no Navy and get rid of that left over Gray on the Yellow and Blue birds........
I suggest the Blue bird will sell just as well if not better because of the South American influence.

A Red, Yellow and Blue Tornado line will be a winner!

Red & white! Definitely not that light blue that blends into blue sky.. My 2cents, even though I like the yellow better than both.
