Nice! What engine did you use? You seem to have tucked it in without too much sticking out. Retracts? Flaps? How does it fly? Tell us more. You're lucky you've got some other club members interested in scale. They were few and far between in the last club I was in. Scale fliers were almost frowned upon.

Doesn't look like it's piloted by anyone <VBG>.

Sorry, I just couldn't resist.

But it does look very good. You did a great job. What is it covered with? Tell us more...

I didnĀ“t put a pilot on it because the airplane its already overweight.
its covered wth solartex and painted with airbrush. I installed flaps, and robart air retracts. the engine is an OS 91 surpass III, but iĀ“m thinking to put an OS 120 with pump because it have about 400 gr. of lead on the nose. the weight ready to fly is 10,3 lbs.

Somebody really butchered the "Miss Marilyn II" scheme on the Mustang in one of the pictures. I hate it when people butcher up a good looking color scheme.

Heres a pitcure of my Top flite spit
I used super coverite with an airbrush, flaps and robart retracts
The engine is an RCV 120 only because it was the heaviest engine that would fit[img][/img]
CG was a big problem
The car is my 67 triumph spitfire. I told my wife my next project was a P-51 but she sid there wasn't room in the garage for it
