Default BIG THUNDERBIRD 1 BUILD

Well here we go with Bensmodelworld's Huge Thunderbird 1..

Just to give an idea of scale



I will be making a few changes to suit what aspects of the many versions of TB1 I like. So it will be a hybrid of all my best bits.

I will be removing the panels on the wing and re-scribing new lines and ailerons.



Also I think I will be doing some work on the nose cone.



I will be sharpening up the cone to be more ..pointy



Also I prefer the 10 nose bars and each one being slimmer.



The kits nose has 16 chunky bars, so I will remove these and add 10 slim ones with less height per bar to so the nose will be closer to the body.

The adjustments are just my preferences and in no way a comment of the kit which is great.
