No, that's be the fourth by my counting... (1833, 1914, (1942), 1982 and... )

Probably aboard HMS Cumberland (one of the "Counties" anyway) when she sailed up, but arrived to late, for the River Plate shindig.  :)

Must have been a "Final Countdown" event that the Brit's keep filed under Very Hush Hush!

Not my scale and may be a repop but this would possibly be an interesting set for some people:

$45 Canadian @ Hannants. You can thank me for paying way too much for the original release of the X-32A.

Would it be wrong to make a manned version of the X-47B? Or re-scale it to 1/144, 1/200 or 1/350, remove the wings mad turn it into a stealthy bomber or airliner?

Great ideas. There is also a 1/48 scale version.

How about forward swept wings just because?

Scale that puppy up to where the wingtip pods from ModelCollect's modified A-12 can properly fit and you definitely would have something that could be done as a Klingon aircraft from before they went interstellar.
