Im having my second Pica 1/5 being built as I write this,I got one and built it when it first came out.
You will not be dissapointed with the pica.
The assembly manual is first rate every step clearly written out(there arent pictures, but who needs pictures?), there wood quality is the best I have ever seen in a kit.There is a fair amount of balsa blocks to shape, but that is no problem.
The scale outline is better than that of topflite(too chubby), but to be honest there arent a lot of truely scale 51's around especially for this kind of money.
The best part is when your plane is finished, they are sweetharts to fly.
I have a flying bud who finished the giant top flight last year, he flew it some, I flew it some, doesnt fly nothing as nice as the pica.
Flying his ,was the reason I wanted another 51, my large one is too big, (im finding80- 90 inch planes suite me best), so I just happened to find a 1/5 scale pica stang on RCU, I got it for 110.00 plus shipping(lucky me
I cant wait untill spring.
