Hello RCU Community!
I am very passionate about military jets from early 50’s to the 60’s. Especially the F-89 Scorpion does it for me, mostly because of its very exceptional design. I knew that I would build a turbine powered F-89 scale model someday, despite the fact that proper kits and plans are somewhat rare to find.
There is currently one manufacturer I know of producing a quite large F-89 ARF kit here in Germany: Air-C-Race. The kit itself is available for quite a while now, but due to its massive size, I was reluctant to buy one yet.
Having flown piston engine models from Air-C-Race in the past, I know that the kits are of a very good quality and that the customer service from Michael has always been great. So why not hop in the car and have a look at the kit before I make the final decision to buy one?
Since there isn’t much info about this impressive kit here on RCU, I decided to share the build with you guys. I hope to have the model airborne by the end of the summer.
Weight: approx 44lbs (depending on single or twin turbine power)
Alright, enough of the talking. Let’s see some pics. I am going to decide between one of those 3 color schemes below.
