Looks to be a tail sitter though, hope the front undercarriage is metal or it will need attaching to a base!



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.

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.

Thanks Kevin.
That does look a very interesting release.
