Standing ovation for you, Jicehem!

It's amazing what a good looking plane it came out being. I remember a week or so ago, in Hyperscale's forum there was a bunch of people complaining that the only part of the kit they had actually built was the engine. Then, they had either toss the kit in the thrash can or swapped it for something else.

Well, to me you've proven that the Tauro kits can be built. And to a great standard, too.

I really like it, congratulations.

Hi mate,

Yes there were numerous problems... I don't remember all...
The kit was finished in April 1994 but has been begun some weeks before... and as I'm obstinate...

Cheers,
Jicehem

Wings as well as flaps on them,fuselage panels (too wide) nose cannons...
You name it - and yes it is a trouble fit on Tauro  :))

Great work once again :-clap
