Awesome!  :thumbsup:

What scale is it, and where did you source the seat harness hardware from please?
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! :)

1. Scale is 1/12
2. The seat is from a Tamiya F1 kit. Don't remember the name.

Hope this helps.

The engine parts are ringing bells but ain't nuthin' coming to mind. :unsure:

I won't pretend that I understand the genre fully, but I can recognise a superb model when I see one and all your recent three posts fit that category  :bow:

The engine parts are parts from an astma holder to plumbing and parts from an old aircraft.
