    Somewhat better chance for built up wooden ARFs.

    The B-2 and B-1 are actually not black, but are 36118 gray. Slightly more sun friendly, if you cheat a little towards lighter shades.
    In the case of the B-1, why not just the promo color, white?

    Aros It is definitely #1 on my RC Bucket List. My better half is supportive, but like most of us, I need to grow my fleet at a steady and predictable rate to keep her happy. She knows that if a Concorde is released it's getting ordered no matter what, it's the only plane with that clout.

    Judging by the quality of my last few purchases, I sure hope that it is Motion/Freewing that release it first. I can see the droop snoot being a big challenge, designing it so that people don't need to shell out too much money after an inadvertent cartwheel. Not having to replace the fuse would be good for ratings.

    As a consumer, I thought the AL37 was the perfect launch to the airliner segment. Perfect pick due to simplicity of gear and configuration. I could be wrong, but any airliner that doesn't closely resemble a narrow body twin would also provide a few challenges of their own if built to semi-scale. I assume that with the success of the AL37 that Motion will do another airliner in the not too distant future. I hope they project an EDF Concorde to be profitable and worth the investment of time and capital.

    The Sheriff I've been clamoring for a Concorde and bugging Alpha to bring us a Freewing Concorde for as long as I have been an employee at Motion RC and that will be 7 years this October, lol. There are legitimate challenges to bring this beautiful, iconic aircraft to the RC EPO foam EDF world, especially the functional nose which let's face it, ya just gotta have! There's a reason it's never been brought to market. Having said that, I believe with the advancements in technology and God-willing Alpha's tenacity, who knows? Maybe we will get our great wish. It's definitely at the top of my RC Bucket List!

    I, for one, would love to see a Concorde complete with a droop snoop. Better yet, an "SST" with optional and removable non-scale, independently functioning canards that can be dressed as a Concorde or TU-144. Right now, there are limited options for both delta-wing aircraft and airliners and the last time we had functioning canards was with the Eurofighter. On top of all that, the Concorde is arguably the most iconic civil aviation aircraft of all time. It's technological breakthroughs and performance specs will not likely be surpassed in our lifetimes.

    F106, we seem to have similar tastes! The Tiffie & Sea Fury are top of my BH wish list too.

    Tho I'd almost kill for a 20cc-30cc F4F!

    It's been amazing to how many new product lines have been added at MRC. The tanks have sold out for two rounds now. I don't know how many have noticed that RC semis have recently been added.

    When Alpha says "evreything's next", he means it.
    No doubt! He has definitely been a busy man with all of the new releases and lineups that have been added recently!

    Elbee It does in terms of the big fat fuselage. I almost like the Buffalo. But everything about the wing shape and more stubby appearance make the Boomerang unique-ish. It almost looks like a cross between a zero and a buffalo.
