Along with the Arriba came an untouched kit of a Multiplex Astra. It's a two or three channel model, not unlike a Middle Phase but with a fibreglass fuselage. Airbrakes are optional, the very nice foam veneer wings have been pre-cut for them. There is no provision for ailerons. The tailplane is built up from strip wood, a towhook is provided but the wing joiner is a single wire, winch launching is mentioned in the instructions!! The Avanti is an ELG version, I assume it would come with a fuselage modified for a motor but would otherwise be identical. There is a red spot on the box artwork under the name to indicate what version is in the box (Chris Foss does the same with the Middle Phase/Phase 6 'trainer/advanced or pro' etc). I'd not heard of either of these designs before, I don't really need a two-channel model but it would be nice for an ISA Nostalgia Day and I enjoy building high quality kits. Cheers Gary
