Perhaps this belongs in a Brew Room equivalent but it’s project related so hopefully it’s alright here! I’m at an odd point in life (no kids, recently divorced) and haven’t really got any hobbies at the minute after mostly finishing the last one. (1992 GMC Typhoon modification and restoration). I’ve begun flying again after a hiatus that began when I left the military which is quite expensive and fun but I’m not getting my hands dirty. It got me thinking that I’d like to build an aeroplane and I decided I’d like something fast and sexy - why wouldn’t you? I found the perfect solution in an aircraft called the Thunder Mustang. It’s 3/4 scale of the WWII fighter, made of composite with a v12 engine and it outperforms the original. I’d give my right nut to own it but the kits ceased production. Nothing else comes close. An assembled one is £250-400k. I recently found a kit online for £50k in the US which is half what they originally cost so it’s a bargain. It is without the engine, PSRU or prop and I have been scrabbling around trying to conjure up some hare-brained scheme to buy it and build it over the coming years. Alas, I don’t think it’s possible for me but in a few months, I’m pretty sure I could at least get my hands on it. My work circumstances are about to change for the better. The timing is terrible. So, I expect it will slip into someone else’s hangar. The experience reminded me of another project that I never got to start. My Dad bought a Land Rover 110 when we lived in Saudi Arabia in 1998 and he had a HMMWV engine from US surplus that we were going to retrofit but we had to leave and customs restrictions meant no export of the parts. It’s probably still there. I was curious to hear what projects some of you ladies and gents might have just missed out on? I bet there are some great ones! Aaah, but for the lack of unlimited time and money eh?
