Sky 8 eh?
How many were there in the programme?
I thought Skydiver 4 was the highest mentioned.

I'm probably wrong. I usually am. :yes:

What do you mean by were? You dont want to make me believe that this was only a sience fiction show???? HAH, only eight Skydivers! I am convinced we even have one in the lake of Zurich in Switzerland...:D

During the Approval/organisational stage of shado, one of the delegates said and I think I quote, "A fleet of 10 submarines?"
So thats my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

BTW the wingspan on the biggy is 19inches I make it around 1/24 scale ish. All in two pack primer now, Ive had to re position some of the fluting on the nose, now its right I'll carry on with the nose intake, not to sure about it as it is.

more piccys to come.

Complete amateur opinion here compared to RCNUT & Maninblack but Cockpit appears a tad small in bottom pic mainly, not quite as obvious in top pic, perhaps it's just optical. Otherwise TOTALLY STUNNING

cockpit

the cockpit canopy is the correct size lenth and width wise however the front top end of the fuse needs attention, If you look at the 2 foot sky 1 refs you will notice a distinct canopy capture point which I will add in due course. The sides will be reduced then so it should all come together. I hope.
