My Spectre winter project so far =o)

Well, after approximately 4 weekends here is what I have so far.
Trim Aircraft Spectre. It is fitted with a RAM750, BVM wheels and brakes, Spring air retracts, JR radio equipment, a tail pipe is coming from RTI, and a custom tank from Jet Tech. I managed to get 2 liters in there LOL!!!!!

It's actually a pretty quick kit to build considering all you get is fiberglass fuse and foam cores. A lot of the ply parts are precut, but I changed the gear mounts as I thought their system was heavy and not very strong. I managed to screw up my canopy though so I'm on the hunt for a new canopy (I hate those things LOL!!!)

Anyway, not sure yet what the finish will be on it, but it will be something cool, and visible!!!!!!

Here's a few pics so far

Nice kit, it should move along with a 750. Is it a plus version or regular?

Can't wait to see the paint job on this one...

It's one of Dean's old engines, 750F I believe. 18 pound thrust air start engine. I'm still sold on the air start rather than auto start. Just like that weight savings (still a pattern guy at heart)

Since you noticed the ibanez, here's a better picture of it, the swirl finish is done by a friend of mine in Florida, he's IMO the only guy in the world worth having do a swirl. There are only 2 guys doing them, but Darren is the best

You can read about why I built the guitar and what it represents here:
