Hi Nick....I have climbed up to one of these in real life to view the drive  :embarrassed: & I don't like heights  :o
How is the weight?........FFG's in real life roll a lot this could certainly help a model do the same  O0 ....Derek

20 grams for this part of the radar, I'm guessing the overall weight will end up around the 50-60 grams.


Thanks

That is very responsive! Lovely ship, I think you need to recreate yourself in 1:48th on top of the missile launcher!
