I'm pretty sure you took out the comprehensive fire/theft/enthusiastic sanding insurance policy so yep - no problem at all.
Send me a pic of the damage if you get the opportunity.

I'll repeat the entry I just made over in another section:
When a mummy CA23 and a daddy Sukhoi love each other very much... and a crowd of F-111 and MiG bits egg them on...

Awesome awesome awesome. I never liked the CA-23 until those CG images. Man that's pretty.

Bring on your new builds, Uncle Les! (and the ability to buy a CA-23 that swings!)

CA-23B:

Other operators

In addition to the RAAF, the following countries also operated the Jigaru:

•   New Zealand:  8 acquired in 1961

I am interested. Assuming our Uncle still produces the 1/72 kit, what would I need for the VG wings?

The wings I used for the drawing were Su-17/22 ones I seem to recall.
