  • I wonder if that's as squirrely as those 3/4 Mustang kits.

    Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies, The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. — C.S. Lewis

  • They used to sell a Chevy 350 powered 3/4 scale Mustang. Wouldn't be too hard to make a Spit variant...

  • THIS looks fucking cool. Look like they're using a Rotax now, which is good. This may be squirrely and dangerous, but what a way to go. More than half the fun would be assembling it.

    Back when they were making them in Australia (not sure why they moved to Texas, probably sold the company) you had the option of the V8 or a supercharged V6

    You can identify an unknown force by firing one shot and judging the response.

    - If the unknowns respond with precise, regimented rifle fire, they are British.

    - If they respond with heavy machinegun fire, they are German.

    - If nothing happens for a few minutes, then your whole position gets leveled by artillery, they are American.

    - If they surrender, they're French.

  • When I worked at CH, the owner Chuck, was building a replica Curtis biplane ultra light in the 2nd floor of the building. Once he finished, he had a construction crew come out and remove the wall portion of the 2nd floor and opened a section 9f the roof. A small crane was then used to hoist the ultra light out onto the parking lot. Then the wings were removed and the Curtis loaded on a flatbed and taken to his hanger at Palomar.
