    Marco, pay attention don't mix up the versions Twisted Evil Twisted Evil even if it is a number 4,'kieku kien 109, kin jghaddi??" Twisted Evil
    It is not an F-8E, but an earlier version, the nose cone is more pointed and not IR seeker.

    Nice Job Chris,

    looking forward to see the cocpit pieces this evening. Unfortunately cannot bring along my bits and pieces, as I would need a van to carry the lot.

    I believe that this is about to change Nann cheers

    You might see some new models (rumor has it there are 3 Wink ) coming from the master sooner than you think. Right Marco Exclamation Question Smile

    If not, Joe Fenech and me have something planned which might prove to be the right catalyst. Can't wait bounce

    By the way... nice progress Chris!

    2nd - Martin Baker mk-F7 fit from 1968 onwards.
