Not a Hornet, and I've just realised there's also a Sabre-engined type I can do!

i think, just to keep it a bit more realistic (in the beyond 1945 universe) i think it would be better to focus on (that would have been) equipent build and used between 1940 and 1949/1950  :mellow:

Who's running it ?

I believe Nils has been daft enough to volunteer himself.
