Thank you .I'm well versed in the history of the original concept.Im also quite aware there are many who adopted Fed Ex,TWA and many other airline liveries as the theme of their SL's.There have also been many others that saw the same vision as I ,an exotic "one of a kind " military themed fighter or starfighter.(one version of mine incorporates a wimsical open cockpit ala WWI complete with pilot figure)The truly great thing about the SL kit is that this is one of the very few platforms that works and looks great in either configuration.I've owned 3 so far and am working on acquiring a fourth as we "speak".
BTW, nice canopy on your MQX...is that a Ti -fighter or an x-wing?
