DIY Replica Fighter Jet goes 5MPH!

Check out this cool DIY replica fighter jet that can actually run at 5MPH.  Of course, that’s on the ground only but I wouldn’t mind having one of these in my garage, great for weekend neighborhood showoffs.

Measuring seven metres in length and four metres in width the £4,000 F-35 Lightning II Fighter Jet has been built at a scale of 1:2.

Resembling Tom Cruise’s jet out of Top Gun, it took 3,500 hours to construct the model.

The plane is constructed from iron, wood, hard foam, fibreglass and lots of epoxy filler, comes complete with cameras and monitors inside the cockpit, and is capable of achieving speeds of 5mph on the road.

The plane’s designer, Arthur van Poppel, 49, from Tilburg, Holland, said: “I finished the plane at the beginning of last year.

“I had no drawings to work from, just some pictures and a small plastic Revell model to use as an example.
