A court heard today that a terror group from Luton plotted to send a remote controlled toy car carrying a home made bomb under the gates of a Territorial Army centre.
Zahid Iqbal, 31, and Mohammed Sharfaraz Ahmed, 25, spoke about making the bomb using instructions in an al Qaida manual.
The manual was entitled "make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom - by the al Qaida chef".
Woolwich Crown Court was played covert recordings of the pair in which Iqbal suggests attaching the bomb to a remote controlled toy car and sending it under the gap of a gate to the TA centre.
The court heard that Iqbal told Ahmed: "I was looking and drove past like the TA centre on Marsh Road. At the bottom of their gate there's quite a big gap."
"If you had a little toy car it drives underneath one of their vehicles or something."
Four men have admitted terror charges.
