Is that for shooting down U.F.O.s, I hear you get alot of them in Arizona? Probably passing over on their way to Eddies house.
And where's the PINK?

I invite all and any criticism, except about Eric The Dog, it's not his fault he's stupid

I can say with all certainity that they are nothing but swamp gas filled weather balloons refracting reflected sunlight during a full eclipse. ;)

Greg,
  How much planning went into this heavy hitter? Did it come to you all at once or was it a progression of ideas that led to this endeavour?

LOL, swamp gas indeed !  No, just was wandering around the hobby store, and randomly picked up some kits...figured something would work out.
  More pics tomorrow night, had a long hot day today...drink, and sleep.

LOL, thanks all ! It has been a hectic week, but I managed to squeeze in a few hours yesterday, and built the MetalStorm cannon for the upper hatch, and made the armor panels for the sides...
