Default 12" Eagle beaks

Is there an active source for 12" (PE scale) Eagle beaks at this time?

Thanks. I didn't realize he was actively taking orders at this time. Great!

Speaking of taking orders...any word on JBOT decals? Still appears to be down.

I keep checking, and still nothing. I've also not received any reply to e-mails...

I wonder what's happened...

I got an e-mail answer to an inquiry back on 3/17/08 in which he predicted he would be up and operating again in April.

I hope that he is all right and that other more pressing--but not bad!--matters have taken his attention away from his decal business.

Ouch. Well, strength to the poor fellow's arm, may he get back into it without too much more difficulty. I've had nothing but good stuff from Jim, so when he's ready I'll order more spectrum roundels

Fozzy, I've done just that. It works fine! You might also want to add some small 'clamps' (like on the studio model) to help align the new CM and make it look properly connected to the Eagle body.

Thank you both very much. One of these days I will get the camera out and snap a few pics and show ya-all what I'm doing. I've been building individual 'cages' (2 for the front and 2 more for the rear) with plans on fastening them together with the spine in the kit. I have an idea for the landing legs and will post something in the future to see if it will work or maybe someone else has tried it.

Do post please as there are a number of people doing the same thing. It seems that this old kit invariably gets replaced and modified when people build it now days.
