That's a very attractive aeroplane.  It would even stand  later conversion to jet power without losing any of its looks.
  Hmmmmmmmmm...................   I wonder how feasible it would be to even attempt to make it super-sonic? Seems pretty aerodynamic, could be suitable for it? I wish kits of the Rainbow were easier to acquire...

Fascinating  aircraft and beautiful build.
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

I wonder if this would be a candidate for jet conversion?
