Excelent. I iused to crew one of those. 2 years ago. Great to see it. I hope this means a plastic kit will come ut now that you have scratched it. The acquisition radar array looks like it is up to high. Hit would hit the tracking dish when at a negative elevation. I expect you are not done. I don't see the air bottle housings to change Acq Freqs. I love it though!!! Very nice.

Apologies for the slackness in participating here.

Finally I have got around to putting an update on this, as it is just about done.
Although, as usual, the photo's have revealed some items that need fixing

Thanks for the insight on these machines.
Would like to see what these air bottle housings are on the real thing though.

I built it only from web pictures (including the PrimePortal walkaround) and a very small line drawing so some details will be missing,plus there appears to be may variations in actual fitout depending on the operator.
I would love to see a kit of this to do a "proper" one









Have to go back and fix some minor things but all in all finished for this one

Cheers
Brian
