Awesome!! I wonder what it has for engines? Those are real jets not 'ducted fans'!
Wars are won by carrying the 'heavy iron' downtown!

Yes i have. Just click on the link. Its a work in progress, have not had the money lately to do so much with it. I have not done any work on it this year, since the money have been invested in new a lens for the camera and other stuff that i´ve been needing.

I have not even been up flying with my BAE Hawk this year, but this mostly comes down to lack of good weather.  :-\

OK, I read that stuff and looked it your pics. How big is the model ? Length and wingspan etc?
Must be as bad as a train set in the house.

Yup, working on it inside a house or apartment can get tough. Fortunatly i can use my parents garage when i doing any work on it. Big doors is a must or some other form of good ventilation when working with fibreglass.

Length: 148,5cm
Wingspan: 107cm
Height: 53cm
Weight: 2kg. (As it is now).
