Thats pretty cool.
I played one of my sons xbox games modern warfare or tour of duty cant remember which but they had a part in there where you were in control of all 3 of these guns on the plane shooting targets and it looks just like this video clip same set up it was really cool I just kept playing that part over and over.

Got the tarp done, looks as close to canvas as possible.

I had to turn the front spot lamp out on the lathe to carve the inside out and make up a lens.

So all done except making a receiver & speed controls mounting tray and a steering servo mount,
The steering arm is a little challenging on the jet drive they made the steering arm way to close to the drive to be able to water proof the push rod but I think I got it under control now.

Mean it looks like it is museum quality and not dare to run at the pond for fear of something happening to it.

Beautiful job, I see a Hull and some Hull sized boxes in the background. Any info on what's next or is that a secret? :-)
