"I just wanted to pass along that this kit is going very well, and fast! I only get a few hours on the weekends to work and this one is simple, and really is “Easy Built”. I have made a few minor changes on my build so far, mostly for strength. I used 1/8 x 1/16 for the leading edge of the wings, and added 1/8 x 1/16 pieces to improve the wing mounting. Also added was a 1/8 x 1/16 former in the bottom of the fuselage to mount wire landing gear. I broke the bottom 1/16 wood when bending near the nose so I just doubled it and shaped it. Cool kit!!!" - Tim Hums
This Red Flash has the best seat in the house as it makes an aerial tour of Toyota, Japan.
The Red Flash was chosen by the Uwanosora Group of Toyota, Japan for its 2011 annual contest.
"I loved this model and couldn't cover up it's framing so I painted it's frames and glued it together." - Philip F. Stock
