I shore do have them...well, at least I can have them made. I'll have to wait till I get home to get you prices. Shipping will be another matter with VAT. Perhaps I will be able to have a mate hand carry them back to UK.

Finally got working on the A-10 today. Going to show it at the Ocala EDF event tomorrow. It's on the wheels for the first time ever. Got the wing and tail mounting holes aligned and drilled, just need some hardware to complete that part of the project. Still lots left to do!!

Sorry I missed you today gunradd.

I told my wife when the A-10 is finished I am going to park it in the garage and park her car outside

I do love having the garage for working on this big stuff!!

That thing really is looking nice brad. You need a 3 car garage so you can keep all the cars and it parked in there. I cant wait to see your maiden. What is your completion goal date?

I gave up on a completion deadline, seems like I just don't have the extra time like I used too, especially since we just bought a house. Luckily most of the hard work is already done. But I hope to have it done before the end of 2010, possibly a maiden in the summer in primer and fully detailed by the end of the year.

On another note, as I suspected with the 2-piece wing, the A-10 will fit inside a Dodge Magnum

Don't remember having that with my kit either....

I don't see any ballast in the nose. Whuts the weight as she sits with two fans and motors in the nacelles?

And...ofcourse I think it looks GOOD!!

There's a large pipe wrench in there!! (really) and 2 boxes of nails for the ejection seat to sit on. Also, I only have one fan installed. Gimme a minute... I'm going to go weigh it out of curiousity
