SAM-SAM-13 Moskalyev

Ahem: with the single pusher propeller, there is a big torque requiring counter-action. Here we (will) go:

The British have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies ran out for three weeks

One of my passion was to transform "ugly planes" into beauties... (Goblin, GeeBee, Corsair A-7, etc.) I'd be glad to do the same with this one, but this is not guaranteed... :-\ ;D
