Now we're talking!! Both of those planes look spectacular... I'm glad they won't be out for a few months though, I just placed a couple orders for stuff and have a brand new house right round the corner.

I am all over the spit! Even if I have to pay for it!

Can't wait!

Hmmm, spit looks good, but is it me or does the spinner look a little small and/or out of proportion? Dora's not really my thing but it does look sweet.

The Merlin cover looks right, it bulges right up to behind the spinner face. I hope the spinner diameter is scale. I can always make a new spinner as long as the back plate is the right diameter.

Be interesting to know the difference in flight characteristics between the clipped and normal version. I wonder if the clipped will have a faster roll rate a la full sized? Either way mine will be clipped, its nice to be different!

Wow both at the same time. That's great! well I'm glad we have some lead time too because I just bought steve's pusher gripen last night and I need to build up the hobby funds again. Maybe in the future we will see a 1o9? Either way the scale appearance looks great and with a little weathering I bet they look fantastic in the air!

Hi Stuart
At our Rn (reynolds number) I doubt you will be able to tell the difference.
