Default Skydiver 5 foot build

Heres where I am with this, Just got hold of 2 Graupner 40mm water jets and have to install them, once this is done then its a matter of adding all the surface detail. Need to get some brushless motors as the 700bbs really drink up the juice.

Done a bit more today, the engine exhausts are under rubber and will replace those in the current kit as they are more screen acurate to the larger filming model. also started to add the vents.
