So on this sunny April day, I have lucked out....

Have found a 'wishlist' Klein, one which is pretty rare in it's own right, and one I have been after for quite a while now. Got it at a great price and took delivery today (via a parcelforce depot).

It appears I have found a prototype to top it all off, to say I am happy is an understatement! The seller hinted it was a prototype, but I took it with a pinch of salt at first until I checked the frame number today. The fuselage is in amazing condition with no paint fade and only a few slight nicks to the paint.

Plan to give it, it's maiden ride at the Klein ride in June (more here - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=245953)

Will update in due course, once cleaned up and parts found hidden in the loft. For now I will tease with the following pic....

I'm really looking forward to seeing this at the Klein meet!
Can’t help thinking it’s moved on from a Dolomite majority... lol
Might bring the Storm or Sunburst. ;-)
