Oh, how pretty is that???? Envy Plus!

That is a such a beautiful kit (Link here). I'm wonder if someone will produce some scale detail parts to suit.

Which motor mount version did you get?

Bye,
Mike

Very nice in deed. It'll cost quite a bit in motor cases and reloads. But hey, this isn't a "fun flyer" kind of project. It'll certainly be spectacular! Envy plus plus!

Open the box! Open the box!

I'm still unpacking from Thunda :( .

Plus I am assembling the 1:100 Saturn V Estes kit (001969). I might hatch a build thread on that one shortly :) .

I vote for a side by side build thread comparing the Estes kit to the Loc kit :D

Good luck cleaning up the red dust.
