Hello Marc

Good to hear from you and that you are so local. Where do you normally fly?

Would be fine having a chat at some stage. Models arrive in July. We have the first batch of the new F86D Sabres coming over too and will be able to do a good deal on the Kingtech K80 Kerostart which suits these models to a tee!

Look forward to meeting you in due course

Ian

Prices are yet to be fixed, keep an eye on the website when it goes live,in a few days, numbers will be restricted on the first consignment, due to popularity of this kit in the states, so be sure to place an advance order.

No problem

The MB339 Pricing

Just needed to finalise delivery details regarding getting them on the next shipment. Need to know how many we will need to add and advance ordering will ensure delivery this time around.

Cost in the UK is going to be £750 with the gear being £520 + UK Courier Costs

Anyone who would like to order one please email me on [email protected]

Thanks

For anyone that wants a Tornado now Dave Wilde at Colchester A1 Models has one available in the shop. I do not understand the excitement is about them as they are surely a Falcon 120 that has balsa sheeted wings. Dave also has Falcon 120 in stock as well.

The model looks very similar to the Falcon120 but that's where the similarity ends

You won't have to do any modifications to this model to make a Jetcat P60 fitas you do with the Falcon 120 (Goldcat54)

The Falcon is designed for a pusher prop and needs extensive modifications to accept a turbine including trimming mounts and formers. Reduced wood then needs reinforcement.

The Tornado has fully sheeted wings whereas the Falcon120 does not.

Tornado wheels, strutts & brakesfit straight in without the need to reduce the wing sheeting even more. The strutts supplied with the Falcon 120 do not fit the plastic inserts provided with the Falcon 120.

When you consider what you get for your money without the need for extensive modifications this makes the Tornado tremendous value for money.

There are many twin boom models on the market and there is plenty of room on the market for them all.They aren't all the same.

We at ModellbauUK have compiled some excellent video & photographsof this model, includingflying footage, so keep and eye on our website for these

Hi Dennis

Sorry Post 18 above didn't make it clear that that was the pricing for the MB339 so I have adjusted the post

If you are interested let me know as I have limited numbers coming in so will need to add additional kits to the consignment to meet current requirements anyway.

Ian
