Sorry Kitbag, tis a lazy Saturday morning here.
But very well done CGB - it is an upgraded Viggen - the JA 37D which included features of the Gripen.

All yours mate!
Cheers.

Fairchild (Canada) Bolingbroke. Surprising number of surviving airframes & even several flightworthy ones.

Well done, Kitbag.


The 1929 Eastman E2 Sea Rover at the British Columbia Aviation Museum in Sidney. Eighteen were built in Detroit. Five came to BC. This one is a "bitsa", built from several of the airframes. The tail of the Bolingbroke is in the background.

You have control

I had to look that one up RV. I think the challenge ac is rather more attractive, if somewhat older than your suggestion.

I42

Yes and No.

The aircraft type was designed by an American in the late 20s as a kit, and became quite popular. This particular ac is registered in the UK (G-xxxx) and was built in the late 80s/early 90s, it looks like there are 20 or so on the UK register.
