Continuing my quest to collect dusty old Multiplex gliders I managed to obtain an Arriba last week. As a bit of non-news the Multiplex Flamingo I restored last year still hasn't flown! Along with the Arriba came an unbuilt kit of an MPX Astra, I will start a separate thread on that. I hadn't heard of the Arriba, it is an ELG version of the Schampus apparently (which I had vaguely heard of). The Arriba is 3.4 metre span and appears to use the wings from the DG600 of the same era (or it could be the other way around!). The model is in flyable condition but as usual I will give it a birthday. The wings are glassed but could do with a repaint, the fuselage gel coat is very good but I'm not a fan of the purple trim colour. The original tailplanes (fitted in the photos) have been driven over by accident, they are actually ok apart from some spanwise cracks. A spare tailplane was provided. The spinner is a little bit over in diameter, looking at it I was thinking about removing the motor and flying it as a pure glider, dunno. Cheers Gary
