That's the most impressive pitot tube I've seen for a while , superb attention to detail :goodjob:

The rest of the aircraft will be stunning in about 40 years

More stuff:




I'd better explain all this nonsense


Firstly, it's my kind of thing. Exploring the structure and engineering of an aeroplane and replicating it in a model fascinates me. I'm an engineer


More to the point, if I go and cut a 'normous hole in the bottom of the 'plane and hang a gun pack below it, a lot of interest and pictures are going to be around the underside of the cockpit. So putting some kind of detail into the area below the cockpit floor, and in the front wheel well makes sense (to me...). Maybe even the wing wheel wells


I'm still worried by those RAF MK.II winches
