    Looking good Tim!

    Is that a kit or home brew? I suspect the latter?

    How is it going to be powered?

    It would be good to see how it works, ie air route etc, never played with one myself.

    When I was about 18yo I borrowed some plans, no idea where from, and tried to photo copy them.... needles to say the photo copier melted, never did know what happened to the plans! and so ended my hovercraft modelling days.....
