    Sorry Nick no. And I won't have any soon as Hendon snatched it back a few years ago along with the P-47, B-24, Kawasaki K-100 and Hawker Hind as well.....
    What a shame

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    I wrote to him for some signed photos a few years ago Nick and the Lebenslauf he sent confirms that his score was 224 with 12 flying the ME262 !
