UPS finally delivered the Big Carbon Airwolf kit! The fuselage is shorter
than the Dauphin, but wider as well. I wish it were about
10% bigger, but the surface of the fuselage is MUCH smoother then the
Len Mount Dauphin. This should cut about a month of initial
sanding and filling time out of the overall build (I think). The
landing gear are horrible, but I am working on something now that I
will keep a secret.... hehe.
The Pneumatic machine guns
came as well. These are beautifully machined, and will allow the
wing pods to extend, and the machine guns to deploy sequentially.
Not terribly scale, but that is coming next!
Ben from Cine-Scale came
through at almost the exact same time. Among the goodies I
received were an immaculately scale cannon, seats, electronic surveillance
pod, exhausts, and (wait for it...) Scale machine guns! Now, I can use
the resin bits from the non-functioning Cine-Scale guns to make the
Pneumatic Vario guns look realistic!!! Now if I can only remember
where I saw those machined brass bullets online for the ammo feed.....
