Thanks a lot Jim! It was so much work since under the paint there is carbon and getting everything smooth was a pain. I'm sure you guys know the scheme, it's my take on the Mclaren F1 Viper Jet paint scheme.

It is amazing how slow this thing will fly with a lot of flaps and a little crow ... I was doing this high up, so it's a bit hard to tell exactly, but I would swear it was less that 10 mph and still stable.

I just went back to see what everyone was talking about. That is one of the nicest looking Falcon / Navy Cat's I've seen. Great job!

Hey Ed
Where can i obtain another cockpit tub for this model.
Im not happy with the way the original that came with the model turned out. It was cut horribly and warped.

Jim:

Sorry, there are no more tubs to be had. When I had the mold, it was offered to Keith Sparks but he was not interested. I had a few other offers to buy it but they were terribly low so I put it away, Then cleaned the house and I misplaced it or threw it away.
