Some scale for the Bomber.

This pic should give you some indication of its span, 3.2m as the video makes me look tall and thin and the span a little shorter. I think the Rebel guys are trying to hint something!!... :-) If you scroll down a little further, you will see some more photo's. Enjoy!! ...Smiley...

Morne's new Mig-7.











We would like to welcome Morne to the MIG-7 SQUADRON. He has always flown a correx Mustang all on his lonesome which ALWAYS batteled to fly in light winds. Not that the plane was the problem, just that it was his first attempt at building with the plastic material that he had to learn to build light. This he has done!! I will get him to weigh it as I think it is VERY light for a Mig the same scale as all the rest. Sorry for not having Morne in the pic for some scale...he had to rush off. Will do next time though.
