Super painting Jim, I presume it was floated off at high tide?

As far as I know, I'll look it up and let you know.
Do you ever 'do' aircraft, we'd love to see them if you do,

No, I haven't "done" airctaft since I was drawing silhouettes of Spitfires and Lancasters on mum's wall as a child :D

I do however admire people who do.
