For some strange reason this link does not work

www.icaerodesign.com

All to do with interior design

This link works but that is a numeral one, not a letter I?

I've been quite kindly offered a copy, and it will be my next build thread. I concur, Jean-Luc- this is a marvelously thought-out, mastered and produced kit. I must finish my current build and then I can dive into this tiny marvel!

It's definitely an improvement over the old LTD kit.

Cheers for the heads-up Antoni

I've altered Jean-Luc's text to match the vendor link at the top of the page. That works fine.

And to think how many years I clung to the LTD. kit waiting for some decent references, only to find it was basically hopeless when Brinzan brought his superb book out! I'd rate it as essential reading for anyone building a kit of this fascinating aircraft:

Chuck - I can hardly wait to see your build - I hope you're busy practising drawing some Romanian groundcrew!

All the best

Nice review Jean-Luc, this is a nice looking aircraft which I think will one day soon be an addition to the rapidly growing pile of to build kits.
