    Outstanding design so far. I can't wait to see it with the wings attached.

    What is the scale of the build?

    Honestly Ashrunner I did not build it to scale. It measures around 8 inches in length. There is a minimal mount of parts for this model. I purposely kept the number low to make designing / building it to a very easy level. One thing that sort of turn me off when building a new model is the large amount of parts some of them come with. Most of the reward is geting a finished product for me and some of the larger one take a while to finish. I have a short attention span and usually lose interest very quickly. Hey but that is just me, and I am sure there are others that feel differently. In any case the wings will be a thin card stock similar to the vertical stabilizer. I will let the textures add detail to them because I have not built them up like the tru craft. This also ties back to few part quick build.


    Anyhow thanks for the words of encouragement
