Scandinavian Airshow is a professional team with over 30 years of airshow experience. In 2013, they unleashed one of the most powerful aerobatic biplanes ever conceived - the Model 12 Viking. Designed by Kevin Kimball, built by Jim Kimball Enterprises and flown by Jacob Hollander, it has wowed millions all over the world. Everything about it, right down to the custom trim scheme by Mirco Pecorari of Aircraft Studio Design, is without equal.

This giant-scale Hangar 9 replica is every bit the stunner its full-scale inspiration is. Matched with any of the most popular 100-125cc gas engines, it will perform show-stopping 3D maneuvers with competition-level precision. And its fit and finish is every bit as good as anything an expert modeler could build from scratch.

Lightweight, Laser-Cut Balsa/Ply Construction

The model has been expertly built to exacting standards with the finest balsa and plywood available. The result is an ARF model that goes together easily and flies with laser-true precision.

Painted Aluminum Landing Gear with Fiberglass Cowl and Wheel Pants

As with the airframe, the landing gear, split cowl and wheel pants are made from the best materials available. And all are painted to perfectly match the vibrant UltraCote® film trim scheme.

Carbon-Fiber Wing Tubes and Tail Wheel Bracket

Both the upper and lower wings benefit from the strength of carbon fiber wing tubes that can easily withstand the stress of aggressive 3D aerobatics. The tail wheel bracket is also reinforced with carbon fiber for extra durability without extra weight.

Firewall Pre-Drilled for Popular 100-125cc Gas Engines

The bolt pattern drilled into the firewall makes it easy to mount any of the most popular 100-125cc engines

I love the scheme!
Is it truly the same airframe as the beast?

There are few differences such as the wing tips, the beast are curved and these arnt. There is an extra inch or so of fuse length on the Viking. Im sure I will find more the more I look into this model


AWESOME model!!!

Don't know the team at Horizon responsible for bringing this one to market, but congratulations to them and to the full scale team of Jacob, Kevin, JKE, and Mirco!!
