Moustache Model Works first kit is a 1/6.3 scale DHC-2 Beaver, designed to use a DLE-20 engine or an E-flite Power 60 electric motor with a 6S, 5000mAh Li-Po battery. Drawn from factory blueprints, it features a 100% scale outline.
Wings and tail surfaces are traditional balsa construction, and the fuselage is primarily lite-ply. Tab-and-slot construction ensures straightness of the fuselage. Laser-cutting is used extensively to ensure parts accuracy. The kit comes complete with all required wood, fiberglass parts, vacuum-formed plastic parts, landing gear, carbon fiber wing tube, pushrods, hardware, plans, and detailed instruction manual. Depending upon building speed, construction should take approximately 100 to 150 hours.
The cowl, wing tips, and landing gear fairings are fiberglass, while the windshield, windows, tail fairings, seats, upper carb intake and oil cooler are all vacuum-formed plastic. Two-piece, plug-in wings make transport and storage convenient, and the entire windshield removes as a large front access hatch to make battery or fuel tank access a breeze.
Two options are provided to allow modelers to customize their kits. First, a fiberglass lower carb intake or "chin scoop" is included, allowing the modeler to choose between upper or lower intakes depending upon the specific Beaver he wants to model. Second, three options are provided for the rear side windows: a single round window, a single rectangular window, or dual rectangular windows.
