Bleh, Twiglets!  Make it pork pies & your in!!!  Otherwise I'll have to bring the evily strong tasting but suprisingly weak French dumpy bottle beer....

OK, I can do Pork Pies, we have an outstanding bakery in the village which produces simply the best Pork Pies in the universe.... but ditch the bierre francais and bring me some of that Belgian rocket fuel, you know the 11% proof stuff.

Mmmmmm pork pies, beer and Hunter models....... :cheers:

Deal!  Got some Trappist beers in the fridge....  Probably won't make it to the end though!!! :drink: :drink: :drink:

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

With the curved wingtips, that really has the look of the F3H Demon with the wings folded. Very brave, Steven.  :thumbsup:

It's like USMC fever is going around.  I love this idea.  The Hunter's such a good looking bird anyway, she deserves to be seen in proper USMC livery. :tank:

question: for a naval version, should we not raise the nose landing gear ?

Raise the nose, lowers the tail, making rotation more difficult.
