Artnoon Ken.

I think Graeme needs a new felt tip!

The pontoon endplates on the 14 are quite thin laterally, whereas in his silhouette they are quite thick.

However, I am sure you are correct and if you wish to continue, since Graeme is , I am happy and I'm sure he will be.

Afternoon

Depends which model of Mil-14 you are looking at! The Mil-14BT has fatter endplates than others, assuming that the 3-view in airwar is correct

As you have both supported my suggestion will move on. Stand-by for the next challenge.

PS...nice to see you back David and glad you are working again Just need to get yourself a pc!

Edit to say Photobucket not working...will post when I can

Thanks David....seems to be my connection. Can't even send an email with a photo...takes too long to load up. Suspect the strong winds have damaged something somewhere around here.

Have to be Open House.

New build from the late 40's. Never went into production.

Morning/Evening.

Depends which model of Mil-14 you are looking at!
Don't know what the variant was, but the silhouette is from 1995...



Ken, your latest looks like the Streak 85?
