I Have This Kit And Wanting To Know If Any One Has One And Has Built It Yet. I Would Like Anyfeed Back I Could Get Before I Start To Build.

I have one but wont start the build for a while. So far my experience with Mountain Models has been great, the planes all build very well by following the instructions.

I bought one of the pre-releases at SEFF this year. Harriers are my favorite thing to do with it. Dont make the mistake I did and use Ekonocote as it will wreak havic on the airframe. I am still working the twists and warps out. I would use Solite.
The build is easy and in a few nights you will be ready to cover.

God Bless,

Vernon

Default New KIT!

Just ordered one of these! Looks pretty cool and I am hoping it will be a decent match for an AXI2820/12 I have laying around. I am off to the other boards to see what I can highlight but am wondering if anyone here has any input? Thanks all. Time for a few more nights or reading!

LOL Rob, I hate you.

(Hoping my MM Clipped Wing Cub appears for my birthday this month. )

We expect a thorough build thread with lots of pictures!

I can do that.
Man, They shipped already! I didn't even order it an hour ago!
Correction, thats an AXI2820/10
Think she will fly pretty good. The Axi seems just a little bigger than the suggested scorpion on thier website.
