Thanks for the info Ed:) I had a look at some of the planes and they are quite impressive. Maybe I'll cover my He 178 in it when it I eventually get it finished[popcorn]

One of the reasons I dropped out of RCG's, and only drop in occasionally on Wattflyer. Too much aggro, "he said, she said etc". It is supposed to be a model aircraft forum for like minded...

It was simply a statement using examples where the majority do the right thing, but the minority bring on the bad reputation. ;)

After retiring my last combat plane, I've been building a Lippisch Li 10, which was a contemporary of the Me 163 Komet. It is a swept wing (36 degrees) with a pusher prop, typical of the early 1940's...
