What a woman!

BBC NEWS | England | Lincolnshire | Reach for the sky from the garage

Susan Lipscombe-Ridley, like many people, needs more space in her garage.
But rather than being cluttered with old toys, unused tools and bottles waiting to be recycled, it is filled with a full-sized Spitfire.
And far from being an impulse buy at a car boot sale it has been built, from the blueprints and rivets up, at her Lincolnshire home.

Puts my feeble DIY efforts to shame...


The link through to Historic Flying Ltd - who restore Spitfires - is also interesting. They even have 3 of them up for sale. Now, where did I put that 1.25 million...

My God what a lovely creature!!
