Yep stunning, Joe. What scale is it? are you going to scratch build a Harrier for it to go in?

Thanks Holdfast. This is in 1/16 scale, built useing assorted Evergreen plastics, Polly-clay, lead foil, solder and wire. Used a set of line drawings i've got from an old FSM magazine. I do plan on building a cockpit around it.
