I finished the build and wrapped up photography at 11:21 PM. That's cutting it close....    I'm going to take a break and then organize things before I make a proper post and get my stuff into the completed builds thread but this is just me getting something posted as proof of completion.












Pictures are a mess but I don't exactly have time to make things better.  ;D

Yes Brad, that's cutting it SERIOUSLY close.  ;D ;D

But it looks great anyway.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

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

Thank you!! I love the lil feller! I actually kind of like it without the stripe I had planned to put down the side. Nice and clean! Looks the part that way.....   kind of reminds me of a couple "UN" liveries I've seen on jets. 


ANYWAY! Although everything is done with this I really wanted to get some better pictures and do this a little more how I wanted to instead of the improvised night time desk photos I took. Those photos aren't bad but I didn't have enough overhead and background lights (the red white and blue things in the back are for aesthetic only) and I didn't have time to grab any knick-knacks or anything. Also, I couldn't seem to get many good angles with it it. I believe I've rectified most of this today!

So, I went and found a badge (ok ok, it just says "concealed blah blah blah" but it looks like a good Police badge!), my Blue Line paracord bracelet thingy, and the good ol' Stars and Stripes to complete me patriotic Police theme.  :mellow:

YEAH! That is a good motto.... I wonder if we have one officially? I should propose it to them if not... then when they adopt it .... steal all the credit and forget to mention Guy came up with it. lmao  :wacko:   ;)    "Why yes, I am quite the patriot, thank you!"  ;D
