Lightning maiden (1 min 25 sec)


This was the days of bungee launch and Nicads.Each launch after mods got better then fitted undercart.

Lightning Second Flight (1 min 48 sec)


Lightning Third Flight (2 min 14 sec)


Lightning with undercart (2 min 39 sec)


Also days before Bladder Cancer.

Made the mistake of goimg from cruciform intake shock cone to restrictive scale centre body.Less thrust.

I`m fine thank you.I am doing a Buccaneer build thread now as if I didn`t have enough models.
Looking forward to flying The Cold War Flight (Javalin Scimitar Sea Vixen) at my clubs E Day Colerne Aug 4th with the help of pilots Rich Vale & Bob Partington.

As President of my local Football Club, Cadbury Heath, proud to preset my late wife`s trophy(Wendy was Co. President) to player of the year Joe Chandler.

I have just found your build log half way through my own Sea Vixen build. Well done on your very successful build and subsequent flights. A master craftsman!

Thanks to agedflyer for leading me to this thread. There are words hardly adequate to describe this incredible undertaking, beautiful flying machine and the genius of the man behind it all.
