    Plastic engineering is never going to be the same as full size, regardless of how good WNW are

    Nope, they are generally spun ali, and there may be a cut out below, for exhaust and priming, but they are one piece. You could display with all of it off, resting next to the airplane. It is usually kept in place with a cable set into a groove around the back edge
  5. I have a theory about Dr1s that I have done nothing to verify, but I wonder if there are now more airworthy replicas than originals? (320) It was a pretty unsuccessful aeroplane. I was amazed at how slow they are!
  6. When Delmar Benjamin brought the GeeBee to France I was lucky enough to air to air it. He is an incredible pilot, I also interviewed him for Aeroplane Monthly's 'Flying Visit' series. He had some interesting things to say about the aeroplane as he was not only a very talented and natural pilot, but a very clever and well-read man who was fascinating to listen to. I did sit in, when you are inside you get the tailplane in your peripheral vision and there feels like about three miles between you and the firewall and there is an instrument panel there somewhere. An amazing aeroplane
  7. Fighter Pilot's Heaven, the book Lopez wrote about his time as a test plot, is one of the best aviation books I have ever read.
  8. Not *that* much different in price!
  9. There is an address on the paypal receipt. I will not post it here
  10. Looking at this it would appear he has been taking money since at least June. This is fraud, surely
  11. Thanks all, I have started a Paypal dispute but I am very annoyed he is advertising still and not sending stuff out. If anyone has the '153's from XT868 I can cobble the rest together.
  12. Hi, I ordered a set of these weeks ago and have not seen them, I have tried emailling and calling and no answer. Have I wasted my money? Melvyn Hiscock
  13. Mine was not supposed to be a quote, it just came out that way. Try and get hold of Paul Leaman's excellent book on the DR1, there are photos of this aeroplane, including one showing the curved leading edge on the tailplane
  14. It is factory finish with red added to wheels and cowling. 102/17 was an F1, not Dr1, so shold have a curved leading edge to the tailplane
