Default Seagull Bucker Jungmeister

Does anyone have experience with this ARF? I would appreciate comments about other Seagull models as to fit, finish and construction. My only experience was a Seabee from many years ago.

I've assembled several Seagull models and was pleased with the fit and finish as well as the flying characteristics. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend their products.

I'm sure there are differences but most of the Eflite and hanger 9 ARFs are made in the same factory by the same workers.

I don't know if that's the case or not, but in the past there were no similarities between H-9 planes and Seagull's models. Completely different engineering.

If you go to the seagull models Facebook page you will see dozens of pictures of their production facilities and see them building models for Sig, Graupner, and many others. They have pictures of them loading boxes in containers. On the box labels you will see Hanger 9 60 CC Mustang, Christan Eagle, etc. I also saw many Eflite labels. Check it out. I suppose the designers change but the workers build them all. It's really impressive how they hand build all those airplanes and seem to be enjoying it.

I am also build a Giant Model Products Laird Super Solution with a 70cc EME twin with electric start it also is a very nice kit the fit and finish of it is also excellent. I have there Gee Bee R-3 on the way I just picked up.

Just received the new SIG Seagull Bucker Jungmeister. Fit and finish A++, Build quality A, covering A+, value for the money A. This is a quarter scale plane spanning 65" Looks suitable for a 2.0 gas or as an electric. Seems light but strong for the size.
