Re: HOn2 a mini...

And got a bit further along..... IMG_1217.jpg IMG_1218.jpg The blue grey will be the paint job for this one...It definitely needs a rework of the window trim.

REALLY appreciate the help!
Thanks guys

Re: HOn2 a mini...

Hi Chris,
I do agree but the downward spiral in to the pit is quite intriguing. If one has enough space, this would be a great feature to use.....

So, I went ahead with some more RECYCLING ....of the Switcher parts for my new creation.
