    I built this one for my soon to be nine Yr old Son. The idea is that this is a bribe to keep him out of my modeling desk. Wish me luck beause he also builds models and MY knives are always sharper, My paint brushes are always straight and I always know where MY sanding stick is.


    This was an OOB build.

    With all.

    I never managed to get my son to pick up the hobby. It's not for everyone.

    Very nice job.

    Looking at it makes me wonder, could that thing get in the air with all that stuff strapped onto it? Looks like an enormous payload.

    My idea also... It prolly could get airborne but range would be short. It's not a standard payload that's for sure. The model looks great though

    Wow you have that loadout set up for max destruction! :lol:

    Well done. And I sympathize with the "tool sharing". Makes me cringe when I find my $9 brushes used over the ChiCom $0.90 brushes my son bought.
