Absolutely fantastic!!! If possible please post pics/video of the test flight.
Is the engine a 160 or a 120?

Cheers,
Paul.

Wow. Stunning! Not my favorite subject but seeing it come together here changes my opinions totally. I remember seeing your Dad's Mig 15 when we were are the WJM In S Africa, so I know what he is capable of, and I reckon when fully scaled up this vampire will be just awesome.
Do yo have any plans to sell this?

That was some kind of an achievement. Finishing second overall with a brand new plane and in front of many great German pilot with their factory built Hawks...
You're bringing a nice bowl of fresh air on that event. Please keep training with the plane and you're gonna be the man to beat in two years from now.
Hat down Glenn...

Dylan comes from a dedicated family of craftsmen, his dad uncle and grandpa all build master class scale models. Real model engineering stuff. It is in his genes.
