Rubber powered Flyline General Aristocrat

Post by GarydNB » 30 Aug 2019, 16:42

Hi all, I've been working on this model on and off for quite some time. Calling it finished now. Stock 1980s kit, no wood replacement, tissue covering, rubber power.

You've made a lovely job of it. It's the two-tone colouring, trim lines, graphics, and scale engine that make all the difference: imagine how ordinary it would look if it were all just one colour.

That's it Wayne! Except I don't keep quite so much crap on the roof. And the canal doesn't always point into wind.

Yep, that's the one Col. I don't have room to build two models at a time!
I took itto the flying aces do at Peterborough but it was too windy to risk flying an un-trimmed model, won a VMC Cessna bird dog kit in the raffle though! (well, Ange did, but I get to play with it)
