    :thumbleft: I'm wonder if the model is powered by a small jet-engine.

    I guess you can get gas and electric turbine engines. Certainly the gas turbines would be most impressive.

    Regarding the "paint job", I think you are exactly right Wurger. Good catch.

    To be a 'jet' guy in the USA you need to field at least 3 jets, a sport model and 2 war bird jets. About 10-15k (USD)each, a 20 foot enclosed trailer and a Dodge Cummins turbo diesel dually tow truck. Anything less is just amateur back yard. haha

    These guys don't sit around and "jaw" either. One guy told me he burns 10 gallons of kero a weekend.
