    I am really interested in this and yes Karl, I am going to give the Banana plane a go, but the 111 provides a go to backup. I shall attempt to do the in unison with one another, in fact I've about decided the 111 should be done as the proposed RAF "K" model.as the Canberra, Buccaneer, TSR-2, and F-111K were all mixed up in the roll in the hay so to speak.
