Additionally few moments of work and voila...





Hope you'll like it :)

One thing...These words "...because polish pilot , when needed , will fly even on stable doors" are real. One of the polish politicians used them when speaking to journalist few years ago :)

Many thanks for all comments :)

The only thing it needs to really fulfill its brief is for it to have Polish AF markings hand-painted on the barn doors! ;)

Absolutely brilliant concept & realisation! ;D 8)

This could be the most delightful thing I've seen all day!

I've got to thank you for the chuckle, it was a rough one today and a laugh did me good!

Always a treat to see models with a sense of humor (and built to such an amazing, museum-quality standard)!
