My 335 has an OS 150 on the front and an OS 60sf on the rear. I believe the ws and length are rgiht at 85" and 1/6.5 scale.....Dont have the weight numbers. It will fly on the 150 alone...ask me how I know. That rear engine does add quite abit of umph to it. It flies like a pattern bird and has a very unique sound to it when both are turning and burning. It is an all wood kit with the cowls being glass and you can order these and the canopy. Hope this helps. I am currently refinishing my 335, hope to hae it finished before the spring

I cant claim any of he building. I bought the plane several yrs ago here on RCU but I have gone under the skiin to stregthen and reglass the kit. I would say it builds pretty light and could use some stregtheniing in certain areas. I dont really like the front hatch area....takes away some rigidity from the front end. The nose gear is so long that the it changes the shape somewhat of the nose area when being built. The scale lines arent the best but you can work with them. If you notice inmy pics, the exhaust stacks and carb intakes arent located in the scale positions or are the scale sizes. I ordered a set from IMP models to bring it up to code. It would be just about impossible to do a scale cockpit without some serious redesigning and strengthening of the front 1/3rd of the fuse. This kit begs for a fiberglass fuse so that the cockpit can be done properly. The wingtips are now solid onmine as they were changed to solid balsa pieces. I added wing filets the full length and I also aadded to the dorsal scoop, added flaps. It will be more different than the same when Iam done.

there are several of the Al Master's kits out there flying. If you can handle sheeting, I imagine this wont be a hard build for you. The wing is of conventional build and the fuse is stringers and sheeting
