Thanks vholis, I used to think the Nipper was an ugly little machine but I guess it
has grown on me & now I quite like it.

I never realised it was fully aerobatic, quite an achievement on VW power.

I just so happen to have a 'spare' 4 stroke 160 twin laying around, just the
thing for a 3rd scale Nipper. - John.
