Heh... good catch. I started plotting out a bit of work for my "Voir et Savoir" collection - which is basically a crossover between my Tintin projects and real world WWII subjects. The Tempest is bound for this project : Tintin: Voir et Savoir 57 - Hawker "Tempest V" | Project by strobez (1:144)
- so it is a bit WHIFFY. The Me262 is in the same boat, but I also have the better Trumpeter kit (earmarked for a Leijiverse collection project). However, yesterday I dropped my Hard Drive and killed it, wiping out months of work on a master decal template I was going to get printed. So some of those more intricate projects are on hold.
I still plan to fancy them up small motors for the props, so it should be fun. I just spent a few days retro-fitting all my 1/144 Area 88 builds with micro USB plugins, so I started to get some ideas. I originally wired them all up with USB plugs, but the wires started adding up and causing havoc - taking up shelf space and creating weird balance/stability issues that would see projects go flying off the shelf, dragged down by a USB anchor and chain. Now they all have the best of both worlds. You can plug them in with a USB cord when you want to see them in action, and remove the cords when not needed.
