    It's a beaut! Matt posted this some time back, and I believe the model is now on permament display in the RAF Museum, Hendon, UK.

    Yup, it is indeed taking pride of place in the entrance foyer at Hendon. It is a fantastic piece of work. Now if only we could persuade the owner to fit a 1/5 Merlin that runs (yes there is at least one that works !) that would be without doubt the best R/C model ever built !!

    Add to that some 20mm paintball cannons, then you would have the ultimate R/C Spit;)
