Guess the pattern ship?
« on: February 08, 2018, 19:11:46 PM »
Firstly it's a very 80's looking pattern model. 63 inch span with tricycle air retracts. Now for the distinguishing features. Fuselage is moulded, wings and tail are foam with glass cloth with no veneer. (There is a seam line down the leading edge so i assume they have come out of a mould) The wing and tail tips are hollow moulded and also seem to have been fitted during manufacture. Weight is 8.3lb so a portly model. Maybe worth a trip to a UKCAA event.

flying's easy - it's getting it back down in one piece that's the hard part
