Wow fantastic stuff and very appropriate seeing as a real "Gloria Lyons" has recently come to the forefront. Have a great book by a chap named David Glen who scratch built a stunning 1/5th scale early mark Spitfire, looking forward to more of your work.

Dear lord, that’s incredible!!! I love seeing the work of scale engineers like yourself - I can’t use the term “modellers” when they do such exquisite work - and it’s amazing to see this level of skill applied to a P-40, let alone NZ3220! WOW!!! My heart’s racing at the level of detail you’ve achieved! I can’t wait to see more.
EDIT: I started my post before you put up your fuse/engine pics. If you framed the last photo right you could fool someone into thinking they’re looking at a 1/1 project
That is some fantastic engineering. I'm interested in how you made the wheel hubs. CNC? Or manual mill and lathe. I run a CNC mill and have made a few interesting shapes (although we have only 3 axis and 4 axis mills) but those wheels are a work of art, as is the rest of it. Is the plan to do the complete aeroplane?
