I am currently working on this years Airfix club kit. It is a 1:48 Messerschmitt Bf 109E-3/E7. There was a choice of two schemes for the kit. An aircraft given to the Japanese for trial purposes, or one captured by the British.
As you can see I chose the British scheme.
Still plenty more decals to go. Also got the aerial to add and the details to paint.
My first experience in nitro R/C come in the shape of a Panda Stadium truck that was a pretty cheap buy being a discontinued model. I soon found out the downside of purchasing a discontinued model is the difficulty of getting spares. I will not make that mistake again.
The truck is a good entry into nitro rc not too fast and pretty reliable, just don’t crash it! You will be searching online for hours to get parts.
Here is a video of me running the truck around a scrapyard.
