    see just how fast it would go. It has seen 256 on a high speed pass. It underwent a flutter analysis during
    its development and I have all that paperwork for that.
    I expect more questions in the future and will be glad to answer them.
    BTW, who is 1:1 scale?
    Welcome to AAFO, Talon. Look forward to your posts and comments. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods with you and your family.

    BTW, have you tried to send a Private Message to 1:1 Scale to find out? You can also view the profile by clicking on the screen name, however, you may not be able to see real names.

    Again, welcome aboard!

    Thanks. Yes I sent him a PM. I am sure it is someone I know.. Whenever I open the hangar door, I will get at least 1 visitor. While building Bob DeFordís full-scale replica Spitfire, people would come out of the woodwork to stop by and check it out. That project took over 8 years. Just gotta love the aviation community!

    Welcome to the forum Vern! Bring the airplane to Reno if it hasn't sold before then.

    It was there a few years ago. I think 2012. Parked in front of American Air Racing HQ hangar.
