Title: MH434 MkIX Rc Model
Post by: TLmark on November 24, 2012, 08:09:20 PM
To date my most extensively detailed model, although I'm working on a new MK1a. I tried to model the plane as she was in the war and not as she is now!

It all electric and with a 1100mm wingspan.

I know this is an old post, but still wanted to comment on what a great looking R/C model!  Fantastic shots of it in the air, looks like a flying legends day at Duxford!  Nice job, you don't often see weathering on an R/C model, looks the business.  From what I can see, looks like a Styrofoam model, very accurate shape, what R/C model is that?

Thank you for you comments :)  I like to weather all my RC planes I brings them to life in my eyes.

It's a Parkzone MkIX approx 1/10 scale. the biggest problem with it the rudder/fin is oversize and not even the correct shape.

when I made my second the MkIX to Mk1 I cut the the fin to something closer to the correct shape.

The Parkzoone plane makes an excellent cheap, and very close to scale RC Plane
