Rickshaw,

Oh, dear.  It is by Scott Lowther...   :banghead:

Okay, so?  As he's a kit builder to, his kit engineering and manufacturing are all first rate.  Has your experience been different?

Or if you are into anime, Stratos 4 (yes, the series that uses modified TSR.2s) has a bit where a 559MS is air-launched from under the wing of a B-60 to deal with a problem.

I detest his politics.   :banghead:

Not a problem. Remember the no politics rule...........
Its kept us sane (if thats possible on here) for years.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.
