Hi there, is this one going to take as long as the coaster? Don't know how you build them so quick and to such a high standard. Congrats on the lgv, I've been driving them for several years and thoroughly enjoy it. Be seeing you..Number6 :-))

Nice build Alan, I like your idea for sealing the rudder shafts. Do you think 3600rpm will be enough power for the Mustang
