Beautifully built and presented so you don’t make Emil of it… Sorry, it had to be said.
Seagull’s 64” span Messerschmitt is, not to put too fine a point on it, another winner that’s crying out for that 1.20 four-stroke (or the 20cc petrol) you’ve got sitting on the shelf in your workshop. Open the box, add the engine, throw in eight Hitec servos, a bit of glue, sprinkle with TLC, then shake vigorously for three minutes and your warbird will be born. Okay, only kidding, please don’t do that. Instead, spend a week or two of relaxed evenings piecing together the exquisite airframe components, attaching horns, hinges and linkages, fettling the engine fit and mounting those servos. At the end of it we guarantee you’ll have assembled a model that looks every bit the formidable Luftwaffe fighter and makes a real impression at the flying field. And that’s before it’s flown. Get it airborne and this evocative 1/6-scale aeroplane will give you a real flavour of the full-size and a buzz that’ll make you want to refuel and fly it again and again.
