Nice photos again Carl  :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

I've been playing with the idea of putting some F-15 drop tanks on the F-22 kit I have. That photo gives me a good idea what to do, although it is something along those lines that I was thinking of.

That’s an agricultural sprayer with really thin, tall wheels for driving between rows of plants. I don’t know how spraying streets will affect the spread of the virus other than to meet the demand “to do something”.
