Default New FB T33

Guys

Just a quick note to let you know that the new T33 is available, not real sure what the differences are but mine came with electric retracts, brakes, removable nose cone and air operated canopy, still waiting for the electronics controller. This is really a superbly built and painted model especially when compared to my FB Panther which I am sure was a result of a raid on the spare parts bins; the only real downside is that I had to wait for nearly six months for it to arrive, as a result it will be some time bfore I start the build.

Regards
Peter

What is the scale 2m or 1/4 ? I looked at Fb website and there is nothing about a new T33 , only a release of a new Viper.

From where did you get it ? If is smaller size , I want one.

It's still the same T-33 that we have enjoyed for many years. There are many minor improvements, such as electric retracts, and brakes. We are testing it. Make sure to just just the 6V batteries with regulators so that the controllers will work more reliably. It's a big plane with big wheels. The nose section has a small cut out so it's easier to access the batteries up front.

Hopefully this works, as promised I have taken some photos but have been unable to upload them via RCU, I have placed them in Photobucket and provided a link.

Yes, attached by a fitted screw head at the front and two screws at the rear.
