Topmodel CZ Nike EVO

Published by Mr. D on

The Topmodel CZ Nike EVO will be my F5B “hotliner class” competition glider. It’s a really impressive kit, with all the parts you need and a high build standard. For example, the covering on the wings is pretty much perfect. I’ll definitely look at more Topmodel CZ kits in the future.

Currently, we are spec’ing and testing parts to go in to the build. But I hope to have them built by the end of February March. I am building Chris’ Nike EVO too.
