Nice looking Epic Jens.
Just to make it clear. Although this Epic is exactly the same scale as all of the Epic Victory's that have been seen before. It comes from an all new kit made by Air C Race. They have made a bunch of improvements to the old kit. Here is a list of what Michael Sieck ( Owner of ACR ) sent me.. See below.
I am seriously contemplating getting another one of these models. I have to admit, the biggest negative on the old one was the one piece wing. It made shipping and transport a nightmare! I also like the idea that its allot more prefab and I am hoping to be able to have it built so it does not need an overall paint job. The Eclipse 400 from the same stable that I am flying right now is a gem, so if the Victory turns out like that.. I will be happy !
Oh and the fact that this latest Epic is so much lighter ( 2.5 Kg I am being told ) is a real bonus as well. Not to mention that there is now a hinged front access panel… Its getting hard to say no! LOL


  • Surface all white inmold paint.. very glossy, almost no seam line visible.
  • Siderudder, Aileron and Elevator now center hinged and Scale details screws and latches
  • Wing now 2 pcs with 35x2 mm tube... very good for transport... and shipping
  • for the reason wing is in center now fuselage, Tank is exact in CG and very far down...
  • All Wood is build in... Doors hinged Flaps hinged... and so on...

Hello all,

like Ali said, this kit we made complete new.. and the best.. the one you see on the pics from Jens it is only painted white inmold.. the black, grey, blue and orange is only vinyl cutted stickers... amazing and light.. also it flyes like it looks... I am really happy and satisfight with this kit... here you can see some pics what we did to the Prototype... all elastic we cut... made em original center hinged.. all surface is matched left and right perfect... the one pcs wing was not in center, the housing from the retract we had to move also not in center.. the one pcs wing we ad to the fuselage and setup the wing tubes.. and so on ... hundreds of hours work... but when I see the result... it was all worth it...

What about just the landing gear, who can I get the landing gear set from or does someone have a set they would like to part with?
