Default AMR Kits

Has anyone here ever built a kit made by AMR (Aircraft Modellers Research)?
They have some large and very large kits?
Just wondering??

Hi Mike,
I have built 2 of the AMR kits, a 33% Waco YMF-5 and I just completed the 33% J-3 Cub.

The Waco was a lengthy build as I did alot of detailing to the plane. It is was a nice build, the kit is well engineered and the wood selection was very good and the laser cutting was 1st rate. The Waco is a great fying plane and is very impressive in the air.

The Cub built much quicker and is a great looking Cub. I only have 1 short flight on the Cub and I am taking it out again this afternoon. My Cub will be featured in a product review for a magazine in the near future. It will be a little tight lipped about the Cub until the review is out.

I would not hesitate to build another AMR kit.

Ask me again in a few weeks!!!!! I'm getting ready to build a couple of their planes, and totally document the builds in building threads here for all to see. But I did look at what they had on hand at Toledo this year, and from what I've talked to those that built them before, and they all say that AMR is high quality kits.

Starting off with the Trainer 50. Dany has made some revisions to the kit that he wants to highlight. The plan right now is to do it with a DLE 55 on it.

After that we're not set. So..... if there is something that everybody is interested in, I'm sure that Dany and Michael will be more than happy to listen. [8D]

I am sure you will like the construction methods used.
You will be spoiled building the wings. The supplied jig works great.

The one and only thing that has kept me away from there Red Lion is money. Not just for the kit but the biggest engine I have on hand is a 100. I have watched others build there planes on line but haven't got to see one in the flesh. So far I haven't heard anything bad with them at all.
My Kingdom for there Red Lion Kit!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Everyone, for your positive replies. Santa's mailman came to the door a few days ago with a large box with instructions to "PUT IT AWAY, IT GOES UNDER THE TREE"

I had a quick peek and the label on the box said "AMR Eclipse 50" and inside I think that I saw another box that said "DLE55" [X(]

Its going to be a good Christmas.

Thanks again

Mike

I started the AMR 50cc stick about 3 weeks ago working off and on just and hour or 2 at a time everthing seems to just fit so well. One of the best designed kits I have ever built. We have a 33% AMR Waco at the field it's a super looking and flying plane I would strongly suggest any one of them Tim
