Great build!

Love the colors scheme and the backstory. Always informative and fun!  ;)

Hi guys

Thanks for the comments!

The tower remains in the same location, Saturn V style :)

Regarding the title of the future Part 3, no relation with the R. Heinlein's book title.
I just happen to be  fan of him, and really like the title.

I will  start the topic very soon. Just gathering documentation and checking the Airfix Lunar Module kit for missing parts :)

I might be wrong here (there's been so many big chains getting taken over or merged with another I'm losing track), but I think all the K-Marts in Canada got taken over by WalMart

My first two wedding rings were tungsten, my third is titanium.  No I haven't been married three times its just that highly polished titanium is highly slippery and will fly off your finger when you are drying you hands, it is also very brittle.  :-[

Thanks, Greg! :smiley:

Yeah, something like that but I'll probably have the fold further out (although that screws with the 3-part wing plan) & lose the machine guns.

K-Mart in Australia is owned by the Coles-Myer group of companies.

Who they are owner by is beyond my care factor.

*chuckle* Wonder if they are under different ownership than the ones in this country?  The operator in the US is going bankrupt and closing a host of Sears and K-Mart stores (what K-Marts have not already been closed).

To me it has potential as a sci-fi fighter

Obviously. Just look at the name. Turboshaft Engine Interceptor  - it's a TEI-Fighter!  ;D :icon_beer:

Actually, some TIE Interceptor solar panels wouldn't look to bad on this.

I trimmed the struts a little, generally only at one strut, because the wing had a crazy-high angle of incidence. Ah well. It's rigged, there's no way I'm putting in new ones, and the owner of the 1:1 subject didn't mention it when he saw the photos so I say it's done!  :smiley:

I put lots of work into the cockpits through scratched and painted detail - including the battery under one of the seats - but you can't see them. Maybe I need to borrow Dad's DSLR to take some macro shots!! I'm pleased and, as I said earlier, Graham really enjoyed seeing the pics.
