If ever a model cried out to be made as a kit in white metal, this would be it. Like resin casting, white metal casting quality varies tremendously too depending on who does it and how.

Much the same as I used, couldn't styrene coated steel rod be used - just cut to length and instructions provided?...

Having said that, much of the kit was made with plain old styrene tube/rod - we'll see how much sagging occurs over time!

Sounds awfully close to a scratchbuild to me. I think people outside this forum are inherently lazy and like to do the least amount of work to produce a finished item. It's not beyond the scope of anyone here though I imagine.

I Think I'm going to try to knock one of these together today...after the waste canisters I have the bug for little projects like this - and besides I want to try to make all Eagle variants for my 'fleet'.

Will probably end up being the refuelling version though...

That's assuming the wife doesn't come up with a list of her own for me to do today...

Dammit! I knew there was something bugging me about the grab arm - I've forgotten the black rings on the 'fingers'... :/
