The Short SB5 was built to test the highly swept wing layout for the EE Lightning and flew with three different wing and two different tail configurations. I built the 69 degree sweep version last year; Now it's time to build the other two versions to complete the set and as the kit is fairly simple and they are both in the same colour scheme, I thought it made sense to do a double build. Two Whirlybirds kits and an original Project-X conversion that supplies the different wings and high-set tailplane. The resin parts simplify the build by dealing with the cockpit, intake and jetpipe. The decals are the horrible Clear-Fix type that don't work very well and always crack after application so I'll be replacing them using home printed ones using the artwork I drew for my previous build. Colour scheme will be silver upper and black lower as it is now preserved at Cosford. Steve
