Kitbash: Estes Argent --> Fat Cat Centaurus
#1
After seeing the TRF thread about the limited availability of some Fat Cat kits, I was motivated to take a stab at cloning a Centaurus. I used the Estes Argent as the starting point, so many dimensions were set for me and thus it is a stand-off downscale. My intermediate progress is chronicled here. (Hope the photo gets attached.)

Pretty good job! Looks like my Centarus from a distance. So you came close enough!

Thanks! I'm happy with it. Close enough for me too!

Cool. With all the Estes sales and my recent PSII kit bash crashes the basement is looking a little Chicken McNuggetty: Parts is Parts! What to do with all those odd sized PSII parts?

No, it's not on my line up. But it has flown at the Sod Farm. If I can't kick this cough, there might not be anything on my lineup Sad
