That's really incredible. Back in the day we used to save all our old used AL printing plates for a guy that used them to make large scale model plane skins.

This takes it to the next level being that it is manned.

Edit: Hopefully it will be fully functional i.e. able to drop bombs on some unsuspecting eveil-doer

Impressive craftsmanship and dedication but looks smaller than 1/3 to me.

What a beautiful plane! I hope it has a successful flight. As far as building it, I can't even imagine spending 20,000 hours on anything

I wonder it the guns are .22's scaled down from .50's
Of course, that makes me also wonder what's coming out of the bomb doors.

Let me pilot the plane while you ride in the back and I can guarantee you what will come out the bomb doors.
