I think there was a James Bond movie (with Roger Moore ?) where they barrel rolled a Mustang over a river.

That article is a little misleading. It wasn't a computer generated image used in the movie but that a computer did all the number crunching to prove that it could be done.
Apparently they used a AMC Hornet ........ should of used a Mustang. It would have been cooler

I remember that! A Morris Minor would have been more impressive. One of the Traveller Estates with wood on Just imagine it.....Barrel rolling over the river at 15mph!!



I glued my rolled parts tonight, and added filler where the joins were less than perfect (almost no where of course ). Tomorrow the wing....again

I was almost never ill until we had kids. Marvellous isn't it? My only conciliation is, that at the age of 36, I gave my son chicken pox when he was 10 months old (he's 10 now). Sadly, he wasn't bothered about them whereas I was laid up for a fortnight!

Get well soon mate!

Currently my sea vixen wing is squished under some books while the glue dries and everything else is about done!
