I've got to see that.

Towerman - can you have a word with your neighbour and see if he'd mind a bunch of bikers turning up to take a look at his WWII warbird?

Not a problem,  it is actively encouraged there is a collection pot by the spitfire...  Dunno if he would be happy with 20 plus Kawasaki versys and there owners on his lawn but these one way to find out.

 Very neat indeed, but a model? It looks to be 1:1 I wonder what the story is behind that :notsure:.

I would think the story started with a beer and the phrase "I wonder if" continued with a few more beers and the phrase "I bet you couldn't"

 Not many beers in the execution, I bet. Looks like it could fly in a straight line or any other which way on command. No canopy vibe either :whistle:.

 What do you reckon it's built from?

Fairy dust mixed into a paste with the tears of an orphan.

If not that then some kind of metal would be my guess!
