Not sure we need to know about it to give an opinion on if he should buy it as something to fly in the meantime.

Voted.

I used to be an aircraft mechanic in the RNZAF I have done a bit of apprentice training on the strike master, they do have that fairly cool side by side seating position, but I wouldn't give you much for the horrid undercarriage design and the lack-lustre power plant.
current cars:
Evo 4 230Kw atw
1971 mini.
79 bugeye 245kw atw.
Evo powered mx5 under construction

I can't imagine that it would be a cheap exercise to fly or maintain a Strikemaster!

Between 70,000 and 90,000 per year based on 250hrs flight time.

a single 20mm cannon is hardly a threat!, max celing is maybe 1500m, i just fly above that and drop a LGB on his ass...

The engines in the strikemaster are very low powered, but i dont need a supersonic jet

1GZ-FE? But then again I guess that leaves you with converting a car motor to aero use. Or the Falconer V12 as seen in http://www.thundermustang.com/, but again I'd imagine that would cost a fair whack as well.. bmw make a few decent V12s too.

Lol.. yes, just been reading up on BMW and its' origins in aircraft engines.. still, I think the 1GZFE would perhaps be a little too big and heavy for your airframe?

Plus is a nazi engine :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
Toyota = Nazi supporters... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Too heavy compared to the allison and under powered. Even the crappy allison made 1,100kw, the merlin upwards of 2,000kw. The 1GZFE is 400hp

There is your "Tank" for $4500


Thats almost affordable! But a FV 432 has got to be the Toyota Previa of "tanks". I was thinking of something much more unaffordable and impractical.
Like these:

If I win Lotto, an impractical and large armoured vehicle is definitely on the "list". :D
