Announcing the limited offering of a scale tribute to the world famous icon of American ingenuity and pride, the Hughes H-4 Hercules!  This massive builders kit of precise, laser cut balsa and plywood parts will assemble to form the structure of your own Spruce Goose flying replica.   Over 1,000 hours was invested into perfecting the scale design and construction of the prototype model as seen featured on the cover of R/C Sport Flyer magazine (November 2008 issue).  This kit will create a stunningly accurate scale masterpiece.


The model constructs through the extensive and creative use of interlocking tabs and slots in conjunction with the use of the included laser cut alignment fixtures.  This Builder’s “short kit” is being offered to experienced builders who are confident of their ability to construct models of this type.   Visit the RC Groups complete build thread here.  Please review the assembly which starts with post #136 and continues through #600.
