That's amazing. However, i'm curious about the German/Italian(?) flying boat in the background, and that Connie at idle is interesting as well.

I found it interesting to see how the nose almost tried to plough the field during takeoff. That explains why the extra set of wheels are there. I always thought they helped landings.
Thanks Vickers.

I heard that it all started when a bloke called Archie Duke shot an ostrich 'cause he was hungry!

That's a big monster!

I wonder how long it took to put the lozenge camouflage on....

there are bigger planes out there. I remember a  b17 or b29 from a popular mechanics issue in the early 1990s that was hitting 30'

I wonder if there are any larger WW1 models? I've seen a very large-scale Fokker Dr.I but it's still smaller than this!

Not quite so big but very impressive is this B-29 with droppable and separately controlled X-1! https://youtu.be/S0a-bE8p8Rc
