it was an ebay win from a guy in Canada a few years back.
I always hope for the best.

experience has taught me to expect the worst.

For all intents and purposes Im calling the Sidetrack Harrier finished. (still a few small bits and bobs to do but close enough for Government work)






And a few pics of something else ive been working on over the last few months. Now about 85-90% complete.


For those thinking id been cured of roteritus.....think again! ;D Theres another one about 50% complete on its way as well.

Hmm, OK. So that's an FAA piston engined S-58 then?
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

The first full 2014 build.



Lightning F-2A. The C.O's aircraft of 85 sqn based at RAF North Luffenham 1972.

85 never flew Lightnings. Their last fighters were Javelins. They ended up as a Bloodhound squadron.
