Kit. Sword did a kit of the Seastar a year or two back.
heres one I noticed on "a well known online auction site" Seastar kit for sale



Ooooh, I like that, thanks OGL.  :thumbsup:

Not sure if I like the price, but it's par for the course these days I guess.
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! :)

Definitely looking good Todd, you've given me an idea for one of mine (got the same kit as yours, plus a vacuform which I can't remember who made it, and the kit bash I was doing before I found the other two  :-X  )

The vacform SeaStar was done by Griffon I think. I had one but sold it a while back, stupid of me......  :banghead:

I think that may have been where I got the one I have from Kit   ;)

Captain, that's looking great! :thumbsup: I know very little about this plane but i agree about it looking better than the T-33.

Nice.  Good job.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I will choose a path that's clear, I will choose free will.
