A new addition to the VTOL range will be this skycrane variant which should be out in a few months time.
Due to continuing issues with the fragile tail fins on these models i've commissioned a resculpt of the weak area which has now been fixed by beefing up the tail booms and extending the horizontal stabiliser forward to greatly strengthen the whole area whilst keeping the overall aesthetic of the designs. This means a re-print and new moulds so the kakapo and moa once sold out will not be back in stock until the new moulds are created. I know this is not ideal but the problem needed addressing if the models are to remain part of the range.

Updated kakapo image.

Very swish! I think the tail redesign is a good idea too, and worth the disruption for superior structural integrity.


Anyway, some food for thought,

Today the new kakapo casts arrived and i'm realy pleased with them as you can see they are practically the same as the older model but with a chunkier tail section. Next wil be the Moa once I can afford to fund the print.

The Moa is the one that carries small vehicles?

By the way, really loving the newer version, it looks so tight!
