Default Styrene 44"

Some impressive work but I can't help but wonder just how strong a styrene Eagle that large would be...

Looking remarkably good though

Hi Todd; I thought that price was for a finished / painted model? I haven't looked in to it in any detail. A finished 44" if well done, a bargain? Maybe I am mistaken, if it is a kit.....that is pricey!

Hi Julian, that's finished. But how are they gonna sell 800 44" eagles? It's not a realistic goal, 100 is a bit high in my opinion. Yes, I agree that's a great price if they do it right! No cutting corners and using sub-par materials.

Interesting to see that. I take it that's a scratchbuild and not an upcoming styrene kit?

Harolds build, Todd has shared the photos. Is resin kit and scratch build; very impressive and quick. Harold has been posting on Facebook.
