Sonic Models B 17 & food for thought.

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
The local club held it's annual open house on Sat & one of the Sonic Models B 17's drew a lot of interest. This is a big foamy at a great price & according to the owner it flies very well with no bad habits. Having seen what you get for about $350 -$360 taxes in I thought it might be nice if they made a Lancaster too & sent them that suggestion. They replied that if there was enough interest they might consider it. I'm not trying to start an email campaign but if any of you would be seriously interested in buying the B 17 but would prefer a Lancaster it may be worth taking the time to let them know so they can do the research.

Here's the one that was flying at the Rideau Flyers field.

It does look nice! I've been eyeing that model, but kinda reluctant as I'm not familiar with the brand or their rep. Also sort of holding out for a Lanc (from any manufacturer).

Ivan Pettigrew, from BC, has a great set of plans for a Lanc. I've got that, and his Beaufighter plans. From everything I've seen and heard, can't go wrong with his designs. Hopefully they'll both be in line for builds this coming fall/winter.

That B17 looks like the same ( same specs as the Memphis Bell) one I got from HK. Green Air Designs has the Lancaster in 62in WS
