Need some help: does anyone know of a mfg that makes WW2 War Birds kits (no foamies), maybe a Mitchell or a conversion to electric brushless?

Laser Arts has been getting a lot of attention w/ this p51 kit:

Molt Models also has a few warbirds

I don't know of any non-foamy B25s, sorry!

For a B-25 lookee here:

There are some nice kits out there although they seem to be getting harder to find as so many folks don't build. :(

You may also want to look at the Herr and Dumas ~30 inch rubber kits as many folks have sucessfully converted them to e-power.

Hi all

I too am on the search for electric WOOD War Birds esp. 600 size ;). When you get into this size, you can still go with a brushed motor and have enough wing for retracts.
So far found:

http://www.rbckits.com/ Check out the Spit and the AT-6 600 size :eek:

http://www.rwdrc.com/ The Hawker line is awesome. Make mine the Tempest MK II, also 600 size!

http://www.houseofbalsa.com/e/env/0001aOALQibCyBIisY5X6v0/index.html?link=/store/store-kits.html From HOB incl. Ziroli P-51.

Oh, if you have not yet watched the Lazer Arts Mustang vid, it is a keeper :D .
