Something different ! Cartoon interpretation of an F-14 Tomcat. Goes together easily but has a couple of issues which caused a take off failure on the 1st attempt. 2nd attempt good though and looked awesome in the air !

A demonstration of great skill by this pilot when the engine on his Spitfire quits and he has to execute a down wind landing to stand any chance of getting it home safely

I have flown so many foamies recently I'd forgotten how good a balsa model could actually be. OMP obviously take pride in the quality of their product. Arrives in an almost bullet proof container to protect it from any knocks during shipping and you can understand that when you see how light the components are. Takes just a few minutes to assemble the PNP version.
