Re: CAA proposed charges

I thought Tony Hooper was our liaison officer with CAA. or am i missing something here. Surely after all that blurb has been issued there will be a few points that have to be discussed at committee level and decisions being made.

Re: 55% Pitts Challenger 2 - Skip Model Designs.

Due to the overwhelming response This model has had and almost crashing the LMA website due to the amount of posts and support we have received, ,( Yeh Right, Its not a WW1 OR a WW2 Aircraft) Thought i would at least post a picture of the finished plane.

Thanks for all the support LMA :)
