So this is, for me, my ultimate "toy". What a nice aerie. The kids gave it a name, but I will not tell where the name came from. Dontwannatalkaboutit........ But it is still a damn nice toy!! I fitted some VG`s across the roof. Seems to make the stall speed a liiiitle bit slower. Had my fun with the big tyres, smaller one`s going on shortly. Now working towards a bit more speed. Those two beeeg tyres are airbrakes of note. This afternoon I added two extra fairings on the gear legs. Made of aly, and rivited at the rear. Should stream line them draggy pipes a little. Every bit helps!
Jinx is sharing hangar space with Oupa G`s Vansin. The weather has been too horrible for him to fly it back to the Fairest, so he left it here. Temted to push it out for a spin....... :wink:
