    Bf-109 G-6 DB 605 engine

    Yes, that's correct and as you say its great to see some more DB605 powered machines flying Here's some info from Pete's link: WNF produced G-6, flown by Lt Schulte, crashed on May 29th 1944 near Melk/Austria. The wreck was recovered and the Austrian Michael Rinner started to restore it in 2007. In 2013, the project was bought by Air Fighter Academy in Zirchow/Germany and the restoration was fully finished (I think) in 2017.

    Pakistani Mirages overhaul

    Hi Jure, Glad you enjoyed the link and like you I am amazed that they continue to keep their Mirages airworthy for so long. I read that they have produced Mirages themselves under license so perhaps have a supply of spare parts. Delays in introducing the JF-17 has meant keeping the Mirages for longer than anticipated.

  11. Hi, I'm interested in the Hawker Hunter correction set & underwing set.


    Would you be willing to let go for £14.00?
