Starting out as a Composite-ARF Mustang kit, Jean-Francois Bobo went the extra mile and made a detailed V-12 Rolls Royce Merlin engine to help boost his craftsmanship score at Top Gun. Not only does it cover up the DLE 55 engine, it also adds weight to the nose (needed for balance,) it increases outline scale fidelity by adding to the exhaust stack details, but also baffles the airflow under the hood. It seperates the fresh inflow of air from the belly scoop to the carburetor and the hot dirty exhaust air. This all improves performance and power.
