I agree that the 12 stars in a blue circle is a bad idea, but the idea that the EU wouldn't just do it anyway because it's the right bad idea is just too cute for words... ;D ;) :wacko:

Dassualt Mirage F-1C RAAF ARDU

When the RAAF purchase new types of aircraft an example is assigned to the ARDU (Aircraft Research & Development Unit) for appraisal.
A high visibility paint scheme is applied when it is deemed necessary to aid with observations.  The white/orange variation is commonly known as "Fanta Can" after a popular brand of sugar water.

Current state of play with the Bugatti body.  PSR is done for now.  A bit more will be needed once I glue the tub to the fenders.

Put any Ikea furniture together lately?  No words whatsoever on their instructions.  Designed to be misunderstood in any country worldwide.


Just like a Mach 2 kit in fact......  ;D
