    My New Airworld MB339

    Guys,

    Today saw the culmination of what has been a fairly long project. I had this 339 delivered about 18months ago and time has been spent on and off of it over that period. Today, however, I was able to go out and carry out some final taxi test and checkovers prior to the maiden flight. I originally thought she would come in over the 20kg UK CAA weight limit but she does feel pretty light for the size so I'll weigh her properly this week.
    Paintwork is a fictitious scheme I lifted/tweaked from the Saudi Air Force Hawks. I couldn't find a true scale scheme that floated my boat and, to be honest, I think this scheme is more than believable! The paintwork was done by the (now retired [] ) Ray Habgood who always turns out a stunning job - and this was no exception. Lots of phone calls, photos and visits got it just to where we'd both envisaged it. Even he said he was "...proud to go out with this one...". [8D]

    Span is 280cm
    Length is 300cm
    Weight is Approx 20kg
    Powerbox Competition SRS

    JR8711 all round

    Anyway, here are some pics from today (couple of my Cougar too)....

    Not a great scale fan, but if ever there was something going to change my mind your MB339 would be it, nice choice of scheme.

    RE: My New Airworld MB339

    Thats great Mark!!
    Looks really nice, and I don't care if the scheme is not scale, the fullsize boys should copy your scheme for once

    Awesome! I wonder how long it'll take before an ARF MB-339 will be offered in this scheme?

    RE: My New Airworld MB339

    Thanks guys. I'm really pleased with it. There are a lot of little details I've added (like 2000 ting screws) that really make this my favourite model I've owned to date. I'm hoping it flies as well as I'm anticipating! Still a few little scale bits and bobs to add yet.

    As for the ARF, based upon the 3 schemes they've copied so far of mine I'd say about 4weeks! [:@]

    Carsten, I'm pretty much an all scale guy now even though the Ultra Lightning is an awesome bit of kit I'll pass! I've had a word with a couple of guys who might be interested - will chat soon.

    Cheers
    Mark

    PS Scott, nice use of the word "chuffed" LOL. I'll have you drinking tea out of a cup and saucer whilst pointing your little finger yet
