At the 2012 Top Gun Scale Invitational, the team of builder Mike Selby and pilot Raymond Johns, took second place in the class with Mike’s amazing totally scratch-built A-6E Intruder.

Mike’s Intruder was 1/5-scale, had a 120-inch span and was powered by a B300F turbine. It weighed 55 pounds. With a static score of 99.423, and a final standing of 193.798 points, the difference between first and second place was less than three points and the team also tied for the high static award.
