ha ha ha.......

That's one way to stay warm in winter !

That's quite a pit crew you have there. The fastest radio de-install yet.
This make dynamic soaring look absolutely safe.

Yet it doesn't fly that fast thanks to the big fuse. Needs aleast 15mph slope wind just to fly......25mph to have fun.

This plane needs a rocket engine.

Saw something in MA years ago where some Nutbar German(?) modellor made a 10' (?) wingspan model 163 and fitted a monster Pulse jet engine.. 200+ mph 'passes'
Spectacular model, even if a bit over the top :-)

At the Air and Space Museum in VA. Was surprised at how small a real Komet is, so I asked a staffer to jump the rail and pose next to the exhibit for a sense of scale. Cheap cell phone shot, but you get the idea. This plane is almost cute as opposed to the Space Shuttle, which resembles an apartment complex.

Clearly the work of the aerodynamicist.

A few days later, I when back with a slightly better camera and got these shots. This plane appears to be right off of the flying field, scratches and all.
