Here's something a little different from Jim Greenwood in Townsville. It's a highly modified Thunderbird. 
The original cowl and cockpit have been modified and the paint job is copied from RAAF 10 Squadron's Mustang which was used to tow target drones in Townsville. I think the original Mustang is now in a museum in southern Queensland somewhere.

Electric powered Thunderbird.

The Mustang style intake scoop under the fuselage was added to house the LiPo battery.
Cooling slots under the nose for the motor and speed control.
