Yes I have seen them fit. I don't know if there were any mods done though. But yes, they do fit.
Keep'em Flying,

hi yes i have painted one of them as i purchased mine from ebay and it came with 2 boddies but one was slightly damaged so i started painting that one first to see what it was like. i used acrylic and just brushed it on but i think for the good one i will be spraying it to get a better finnish.

i have still got to work out how to fit the aerohawk frame or i might even try a honney bee frame instead as this is more like the humming bird and undercarrage is more like the piccalo style than aerohawk ones are.


give you a tip when glueing both sides together dont grip it to hard to squash joint together as mine left a few finger impression marks on the styreen boddy.

im not used to working with styreen.

Steve they are actually made out of styrofoam not styrene and are very fragile as a result. Styrene or PETG bodies that will fit the Blade CP are available from DarthDrk at

http://darthdrk.4t.com/

and made from Lexan from Jack Dunkle at www.jmdmodels.com

like you say they are very fragile the smallets bit of pressure and you have an impression.

luckily i found this out on the damaged one first.

this is my first attempt other than the card canopy apache i have tried to fit to one of my hellis.

steve

Not an AirWolf, but the basic shape to start with if you are so inclined.
