The AVRO CF105 Arrow had all the right ingredients to become one of the most outstanding all weather interceptors of the Cold War. The Arrow was designed by AVRO Canada, to counter the threat of fast Soviet Nuclear bombers attacking the West via Canadian Airspace, however, based on an over-confidence at the time in surface-to-air missiles, this amazing aircraft was cancelled and despite impressive test results, never saw active service.
This quality and quite amazing looking 70mm ARF scale jet has a pre-painted fuselage and pre-covered foam core-balsa sheeted wing. The CF105 has a generous size delta wing combined with an ultra sleek profile, giving both speed and excellent slow fly ability. A 70mm fan unit is included, as is all hardware, including fixed under-carriage, or if you wish, the model is retract ready to accept a set of electric retract units (not included).
