It's the real thing I believe. It looks to be a real old picture.

If still could be that the model has a higher tail than the real thing. I just haven't made up my mind yet.

The HS is set very high, so the gunner can shoot stright back at a plane on his tail.

If it was set very high how could he shoot an enemy on his tail?

Yeah. I read that it's the rudder that's low, for that reason.

Heh. Someone just suggested I might need a bigger head.

The bolts look good, but they put me over 20k. I can make them simpler. Here's the question: Should I model bolts or servos? I think it'll be one or the other.

Cool. There's about 3 or 4 other people I'd like to hear from.

I don't think servos fit this build as well as the scale details do.

If i go the bolt route, I'll have to reduce the polies in the nuts and bolts I put in. I'll do it in part by having the Maj. bump bolt/screw heads in. It'll still cost some polies. There's alot of them.

My vote would be for the bolts. I think they'll add much more to the Wow factor of this plane than the servos. And as a side benefit, it will make the physics slightly easier.

Ooh, that smarts. Ah well, I knew I was part of the peanut gallery for this question. Just for that, I'm voting twice. I think the bolts look really good.
