Goldfinger has the same size wings which use those short ailerons. Instead of making new ones they used Precious Metal's.

    Wow, sounds like PM has become Pick-A-Part, surely not a good thing.
    Thank you.

    Pretty sure it isn't being parted out, but fixed to fly again as a TF at Airmotive.

    So just the go-fast parts are being parted out.

    As it should.More valuable as a TF than an air racer in "the worlds fastest motorsport".Really? Four days a year they call this a sport?

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I'd like to introduce you to what is commonly referred to as a "troll". In recent years they've spread across online message boards like boars in Texas. This unfortunate being seemingly exists solely to insult people and start or participate in arguments online with no real connection to the subjects of the argument, this gives them some sort of perverse pleasure. There is a set of conditions that a large majority of these internet instigators seem to have in common. They are obese. They wear an odd facial hair style called a neckbeard. They live in a subterranean space under their parents home. They seem to spend most of their waking time online or playing video games. They normally live a fairly solitary life with the exception of a certain level of financial dependence on their parents. They are, with very few exceptions, completely harmless. They can be fun to play with if you have some patience. I don't mean poking them in the eye with a stick through a fence or giving them a swift kick, more like teaching them how to play ball. You toss a ball, they chase it and bring it back, tell them thank you very much and repeat over and over and over and over..........

    And then there are people that wake up every morning and their goal in life is to try and ruin other peoples nice day.

    Given how many hours I put in adapting them to fit onto PM, it breaks my heart to hear the strakes are gone. Each days trip to work on them was a 90 mile round trip, not counting all the sweat equity invested. Only thing I know for certain is the rebuild is moving at the speed of money.
