Yepp!, this aurora is a R/C model, no doubt about it, The dual wheeled landing gear is the big clue obvisouly the builder, did a serious goof on the main gear i.e. the rear ones, that are supposed to be two sets of tires per side of each strut, for a combined total of eight tires. Most full scale aircraft, as to my understanding, that have dual wheel main's are in parallel i.e. one on the left and then on the right side, per strut not in tandem (one behind the other), as in the aurora, picture. Also this is the aurora seen in bill sweetman's book on the aurora as noted in a article on, website. The jaguar, has two wheeled main's, that are side by side that to which I referenced earlier. yepp I am now convinced that this a R/C model.

regards this will be my final comment on this issue unless, more info becomes available!
