Construction: Molded fiberglass fuselage, tail sections, wing center-section, and engine nacelles with light-plywood support, balsa-and-plywood wing panels and sections

Covering/finish: Three-color flat-finished camouflage paint over fiberglass, film covered wings and tail

Options: Retractable landing gear (Not Included)

Construction: Model assembly begins with attaching the ailerons to the wings using cloth-style hinges provided in the kit. The engine nacelle splits the flaps on each wing panel, which are connected with a U-shaped joiner wire. The flaps are attached after the wing sections are joined, to make their alignment easier to match.

            The wing is composed of a center-section and two outer panels. The outer panels and control surfaces are built-up wooden structures, and the center-section is a fiberglass shell with a plywood skeleton.

            Two aluminum tubes—measuring 87/16 inches in length and 3/4 inch in diameter—installed with epoxy are used as spars to permanently join the outer panels to the center-section with a slight amount of dihedral.

            The aileron servos are installed in the outer panels before the wing is joined.

            Four plywood formers give interior support to the fuselage’s one-piece fiberglass mold; the exterior seam joining the top and bottom is intelligently hidden with a change in paint color. The wing mates nicely with the fuselage’s saddle area using a notch and groove that ensures alignment. Three hefty metal screws are used to hold the wing in place.

            The elevator halves are an airfoil-shaped, wood-frame construction. An aluminum tube that measures 615/16 inches in length and 3/8 inch in diameter joins the fiberglass stabilizer halves. The aluminum tube passes through a hole that must be cut through the sides of the molded fuselage.        Each elevator half is connected to the ends of a Y-shaped pushrod.

            Similar to the elevator halves, the rudder has an airfoil-shaped wood frame.

The retract bays are built into the wing from the factory, so the retracts will drop right in.




Engine Installation: Mounting the engine is fairly simple. Two-piece engine mounts (provided in the kit) are used to hold each O.S. .32 SX. The power plants are side-mounted so that the stock muffler vents to the lower side of the engine nacelles. Use a Dremel Moto-Tool to carefully carved away areas of each cowl so they could fit over the engine/muffler and give access to the fuel filler, carburetor port, and needle valve.


Finishing: The Mosquito ARF is covered with Solartex that has been professionally spray-painted with flat military colors: gray/green camouflage on the top and all light gray on the bottom.

            The finish job is exceptional; all painted surfaces matched perfectly. Panel lines are embedded on all fiberglass parts.  The quality and quantity of included decals are excellent. They are made from a stick-on material and have a flat finish to match the paint.


The Mosquito is a top-quality ARF that ought to be on your buy list. You will not be disappointed and you will be the envy at your flying field.[dingbat]
