I find myself asking "How much of the back-story is fact & how much is fiction?" :unsure:

Very neat & believable build, Dizzy! :thumbsup:

Very realistic indeed.
You are right, it's the missing link between the WW2 model and the Luchs.

Thanks a lot! Yes, it's probably a good example of how a whiffy model fills a historical gap - it works very well in this case, also because the build combines (literally) elements from the previous generation and from the successor.  :lol:

EXACTLY my thoughts too!
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! :)

On a real world note, the US Occupation Forces Constabulary, which more or less replaced the German civil police used M8 Greyhounds.  There is an interesting article at:
