Cool, reminds me of a shorter version of a FSI EOS.

I was thinking the same thing. The top section is thinner than the Eos, but it has similar lines.

The EOS is one FSI bird that I haven't attempted, but I'm a) building up quite a backlog of unflown projects, and b) I still have several of my initial FSI clones to finish. :D I know for sure the camo on the Hercules is still unfinished, the Penetrator is still in all white, and the Voyager is still in primer.

Bill, I have yet to find my model. Will post some scans when I do. IIRC I enlarged the catalog picture which appeared to have the root edge of the fin perpendicular(i.e. a straight on shot. I then laid out a 3 an four fin circle and extended the lines to get a 120 degree lay out of the span if that makes any sense.

I'll continue to look for it and will post scans when I find it.

No way. Explosions and fire are always better than a dull thud. :cool:
