Off topic for sure, but that reminds me of one of my favorite Miyazaki films, Kurenai no Buta (Porco Rosso).



Porco Rosso (1992) Japanese Trailer (2 min 26 sec)


There is a really cool line in it where Porco, the protagonist, says something to the effect of "A pig that doesn't fly, is just a pig". In Japanese it sounds much cooler, 飛ばない豚はただの豚だ or "tobanai buta wa tada no buta da", as it's more alliterative and how it's said in the movie reveals Porco's despise or fear of being a normal pig. It's a good movie to watch even for "big kids" not to mention there airplanes involved!

Ouch I saw Carlski's new one in his multi-plane photo but I hear it may not be his to keep There's always fake fest

BTW, I just heard that the northern hemisphere contingent may be coming online soon so we'd better finish up our projects and make room for some Chaos! Of course, I'm not talking to you Brian since you could build all of the Chaos' before I get my Zephyr wing mounted

Only just caught up with this. Great to see it flying [and looking] so good. You must be pleased BTW did the 104 fly? Or did I miss that as well?
