It looks absolutly wonderful.

One of your better examples, Allan...sharp-lookin' build - I like it.

Nostalgic kit, but a very sharp finish in build and paint.

Anthony Conway said on December 13, 2017
Cracking job on that Allan. Makes me wish i hadnt sold mine.
Thanks Anthony, could always buy another, if you can find one !
Anthony Conway said on December 14, 2017
Yeah but I could not build it to the standard you have here. I have not seen a better one.
Marc Barris said on December 13, 2017
Fantastic job, must be quite big.
Thanks Mark, 60' diameter rotor, so a fair size !
Allan J Withers said on December 26, 2017
A bit of misinformation from my reference book, should be 90' or 27.43 meters in diameter !
Robert Royes said on December 13, 2017

Thanks Robert, when was that pic' of yourself taken ?

Splendid stylish model finish and super flashback for me. I wish these were whirling around us silently as a city transportation vehicles.
Thanks IT, silently !
Bernard E. Hackett, Jr. said on December 13, 2017
Allan, beautifully done, and rarely built. I remember reading that they were very loud, and it was hot being around them when they operated.
Thanks Bernard, very noisy, and four tip-jets pumping out hot air !
Erich Goldbach said on December 14, 2017

Allan J Withers said on December 14, 2017
Thanks Erich, one of a kind !
George Williams said on December 14, 2017
Fantastic work on what must be an ancient kit. What a pity they were never that successful in real life.
Thanks George, it is, if only they hadn't been so noisy, who knows !
David Mills said on December 14, 2017
Great work Allan, good to see this fascinating aircraft and kit actually built.
Tom Cleaver said on December 14, 2017
I remember just how dreadful this kit was. Which makes your transformation truly a fine silk purse from a sow's ear. Really good work here!
John Healy said on December 14, 2017
That turned out great, Allan. That’s the first one I’ve ever seen finished.
