Thanks folks.

I did a spot of rummaging through my boxes of aircraft weapons today and have selected as a load for this a pair of SUU-14 dispensers (Academy Dragonfly - used by the PDRV Republican Police to dispense tear gas and other crowd control munitions), a nose mounted camera (Italeri/Tamiya Huey - I might add a spotlight to this) and the streamlined winch housing from one of those towed target setups Hasegawa put in the missiles weapons pack and which you very rarely see used.  I'll turn the winch housing into an ECM pod type thingo.

Still needs the payload.  But while I had Dadswell Bridge Field set up...

Verry good. The Huey fuselage seems made on purpose for some dragonfly-style flying thing.
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

That's because it IS a dragonfly-style flying thing......  ;D ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
