It won't be as impressive as a scratch-built Hurricane but, unlike my Tigercat, it may actually see the light of day before 2030. Wink

Funny statistic...

The other pictures of the plane alone have been opened around 45 times each. The one with the pit crew has been opened 60 times.

Makes me wonder...  Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed

What a cool looking plane.  I don't know a lot about the Dauntless, so now I have a great reason to check it out a bit. 

Good to see different planes showing up at the field....many of them being warbirds.
