    The J3 is basic and simple,... have you looked closely at a Spitfire or Hurricane ? ...these two have a monstrous engine, loads of gauges and systems and are as easy to fly as a wild bronco! but what a kick!

    A J3 doesn't sound too exciting, but it's nice for sightseeing. If I could get from Paris to Munich in an hour and a half I probably would have built a Cessna too. I like to go places.

    I really like the 206, Cardinal RG, P210, and the Cutlass RG. Got my instrument ticket in the Cutlass. I love that airplane.

    Fighters are cool too, but I like more dials and switches than they have room for.

    I've got the spitfire dimensions. I am also working on laser cut 3d gauges at this point. They are non functioning...or at least were going to be until I saw Flight Illusion's vintage AH. Now I am reconsidering.

    I'll dig them out for you this comming weekend if I get time. Depending on how much you are willing to spend I can put you in touch with a guy who makes the spade grips...about A$600-700...but solid as the original and beautiful!!

    In memory of Flt Lt Tony Hill who, on 5 December 1941, at the request of Doctor R V Jones, successfully photographed a small "Würzburg radar" at Bruneval on the French coast. This from a height of only 200 ft, at high speed, under fire and from a camera mounted obliquely behind the cockpit.
