Very easy to build,  good beginning twin          

Simplified Structure   all foam and fiberglass  for fast and easy building.

Plans include all templates for foam cutting.

Very sturdy and easily repairable, and will survive most crashes with minimal repairs.  You'll love foam airplanes after you've flown this one.  Anyone new to  twin-engine aircraft flying should start with this airplane.  I did, and it saved me a lot of grief.

           Scale Outlines

           Very Aerobatic  This airplane flies really well!

           Very Slow Landing, and even better with flaps.

           Strong Landing Gear Lots of room for retracts, too.

           Easy to Detail into a realistic scale model.

           Comes apart behind the wing  You can sit it on the wheels for transport.

           Foam Cutting Templates  All templates are shown on the plans.

           Insignias and Markings shown on plans,  so you can make your own markings from trim sheets.

            These are the same as the picture on the cover of the  Squadron-Signal "OV-1 Mohawk In Action" book.
