Boggled, blown and stupefied! WOW!
I find it very hard to believe Academy would make a mistake like that he said sarcastically...

A little progress. Always liked those test aircraft where an aircraft is pulled off the production line and then converted....you get those whacky paint schemes with natural metal:

Love this one.

But do tell, is it the production version or, like the Me 262, the first prototype with a propeller stuck in the nose just to get airframe testing under way?
Cheers.

A test aircraft, the second cockpit is for an engineer with equipment. I think its a bit like the Fireball, mixed power. Maybe later versions have the intake in the nose ;).

Cool. I like the rocket installation underneath and the clean, angled paint scheme.  :thumbsup:
