Thanks Kevin.
That does look a very interesting release.
Looks to be a tail sitter though, hope the front undercarriage is metal or it will need attaching to a base!

Andy, it does. The only hope other then metal landing gear might be there would hopefully room in the engine or transmission to add some wait.

I'm not too sure of it being a tail-sitter. The one picture that shows the front gear off the ground has almost none of the forward parts attached. I bet once all the parts are in place, it will sit just fine on it's landing gear.

Hi everybody,
This is the box #41001 which indeed doesn't represent the Kolibri with a tail-sitter. MiniArt is about to release within the next couple of months another version (box #41003) that will include the tail-sitter, as well as the two 25 litres cylindrical fuel tanks mounted externally on both sides of the pilot seat.
Cheers,
