KMA Beaver

Anyone received and built the new DH Beaver from Kondor Models?

VMAR Mustang

My very strong suggestion is to stay as far away from VMAR products as you can. I purchased 3 now, a Chipmunk, a Harvard II and an Ugly Stick 60 size. All were manufactured very poorly. Materials,...

World Models Spitfire

Yikes! I'd return this kit to the place you bought it from. First rule...NEVER buy an ARF from a mail or web-based order house. There is great variability in quality with these products which are...

World Spitfire 70

I think that we must have obtained the first batch or crate of these models. The quality of my Spit was definately below what I've come to expect from World! They sent me a new wing and I nticed that...

4*60 ARF fuel tank?

The recommended control throws will work just fine to get you started and you will find them very responsive, yet not excessive. One you get used to how the 4* handles, then you can play with the...

World Spitfire 70

Thanks Carl. Perhaps World will produce their next version with a more scale fuselage, wing fairings and a military flat finish. Wouldn't that put the kit masters to shame?
