 Don't know if i'm right but i admit i'm weird so probably you're right... ;D :thumbsup: Got me curious as i believe it would look great with both mods, wouldn't need a large fuselage extension though...  :rolleyes:

If you mean "about 5cm in scale, so whatever that is in "reality"", then, yes, 2.4m (240cm) on the money. ;) :thumbsup:




(Otherwise it's about 1.042mm! :blink: )

Thanks guys. Yes, she's going to be huge ! The Victor is 72nd scale. I'm going to finish her as a flyer. 1-easier, 2-better to fly around the room with !

LOL! Well I guess its too late now, but what I had in mind was a 72nd/144nd or a 48nd/96nd scale-o-rama.

Anyhow I like the idea of a lengthened fuselage. :thumbsup:

When you see something as cool as the Crescent Winged lightning, you go straight to the styrene cave and it's a 'run what you brung' kind of thing !

Lots of puttying going on. Haven't started any sanding yet still another coat or two to go on. Now, what about the guns ? Leave two in the belly ? 2 or 4 on the nose ? None ?
