I'm only 90% happy with the Piggy I cut. So I'm waiting for some new cutting bits, and redrawn the airbrakes.
If I'm going to do this I'm doing it right. So apologies for the delay's but the finish and quality of the model will
not be compromised before you guys can part with some pennies ;)

No offence to Ernst but that really is ugly  :P  and I thought my Helix was bad enough.


Might be better at AF schedule but can't say it flew AP any better than the Disney does.

I bet it takes no longer than 10-15 minutes - the rest is makeup to make it look so ugly .....
still - flies great :)

8 hours to cut.
6 hours to build.
4 hours to setup.
10 seconds to remodel against the wall  :)
