Default Side by side.....

Hi there ETF friends, just a few shots of the second Eagle refit beside the first - the second one's just been re-assembled with the long side members only, because I haven't fitted the cross-members yet. Baffles came out better, slightly better build all round (the first one was terribly tatty) but overall I'm very pleased.

Always liked pictures of the Eagle from behind - great looking craft!!

Kindest regards

Patrick

Really showcased the sheer immensity of those 4 big engine-bells!

And more than left to your imagination, just how big the entire craft attached to them was...


ADD: some great rear-Eagle views, from Missing Link...

Patrick, You are doing a fine job refitting your old Eagles. The old Airfix/MPC Eagles may not be the most accurate but they can sure be built into a nice Eagle as you are showing us with your work on these. These old kits can certainly bring back a lot of nice memories. I personally like the old kits from back in the day when 'accuracy' wasn't the big deal it is today.

BTW, I like the 6 legged Eagle with them spaced evenly. I can imagine it in an episode.

Keep these updates coming and excellent work on these.

Mike.
