The Flying Legend Italia line of scaled replicas includes several models of the Tucano, including the LSA pictured above, and the Hawker Hurricane. The Tucano LSA is powered by a Rotax 912 or 914 engine, and cruises at 120kts (maximum 178kts). There are dealers around the world, with two in the U.S.
The Thunder Mustang and the Titan T-51 are very similar from the outside, though there are basic differences. The Thunder Mustang seen above, with an example from Blue Thunder Racing, is made from a kit of composite materials. The racing example, flown by John Parker, features a 640hp Falconer engine and cruises at over 300kts.
The Titan T-51D and T-51B pictured below are constructed of conventional aluminum materials and powered by a Rotax 912 or 914 class engine. The Austinburg, OH-based company has dealers throughout the U.S. and around the world.
