For 20 beans it's such a deal. A nicely cut EPP kit, a funky paint job, slots/hinges done, includes CF, a very clever printed universal motor mount and other bits n' pieces.

Now, to make it something special. Time to put the scratch build skills to work. Number one on the re-build list it to make it a light tractor powered by a 1407 motor.

Here's the start...………. chop two inches of each wing panel...……………… now a 700mm.
