It'd be nice to see FT do the Lancaster too... But I think this season is all about scratch builds :(

I'm getting the feel that FT has fallen from HK's priority a bit over the last few months.

Haha, winter's usually good for flying here in Canberra. Calm, sunny days, if on the cold side.

I do think the Zephyr would be a really good plane for FT to do, as it's innovative and spunky.

I'd love to see a review of the Lancaster... One of my uncles worked on keeping these beasts in the air during WWII. As a result he has never flown in any type of machine. He once told me that the only thing keeping them in the air half the time was a few crossed fingers and some well worded prayers. He said that they would come back with gapping holes and panels swinging in the breeze!

My grandfather was the pilot of a Lancaster in WWII, 'S for Sugar' was the name of the plane. Could be a chance your uncle worked on his plane. My grandfather was Laurie Baker and passed away 5 years ago. From what I understand the 'S for Sugar' is one of only 2 surviving Lancaster from WWII and is in a museum in the UK somewhere.

I'd like to get my hands on one too just because of the family history with the plane.

Heh - last time I was in Canberra (a couple of weeks ago) it was raining and foggy and just shy of far too cold. It felt like I was back in London again!

I would love to see a good impartial review of this as well - it's a pretty cool looking beastie.
