UFO Skydiver 5 Footer
« on: November 25, 2012, 09:52:50 PM »

This is my Big Skydiver, at the moment its a surface runner powered by 2 tornado thumpers going thru Graupner jets with custom made fiberglass intakes. Its had its first water test (see link below) As with a few of my models its waiting for paint as well.
