    I was looking at the shadows of them and noticed the Fans on Thrust were in the wrong spot? WTF would they do that?

    Anyhow I have a friend that has the botcon or atleast access to the botcon Thrust and we are discussing doing molds of the wings and the rear wings for when the Henkei one comes out or if folks wanna save money and make their own.

    Would anyone be interested in this? We would ofcoarse get some pics of the wings up before anything.

    Unless someone else has already thought of this then please share.

    Molds would be cool, as long as they're good quality and can take a new coat of paint well.
    Especially since Alyosha's left his set out of stock for what feels like forever.

    Well Rog, the guy that would be doing this with me has won several awards for his custom casts for Star Trek ships that were shown in shows but never made into models as well as several other things.

    I will speak with him some more and see what turns up and post it on here. If anyone else wants to colaborate on this lmk.. painting etc.

    Thrust has always been my fav seeker since G1 but if the shadow of the henkei one is correct, fans on the rear wings is dumb. We will probably wait to see what the actual Henkei ones look like before we get too excited and then go from there. We will prolly be casting the them correctly as many people know the Botcons were accidentally molded upside down so they made decals to cover the screws.

    Rog said it wouldn't be hard to mold them rightside up and move the gun holes to the correct side.

    And if his stuff is good quality, by all means proceed.

    Oh, well the way you worded your sentence made it seem as if you referred to me as Rog. Like if I were to say "Well Bluestreak76, blablablablabla". :lol

    Takara didn't know how it worked on the original Thrust, what with his guns being mounted on the fans.:inquisiti

    Well, yeah. Positioning the fans somewhere in the VICINITY of the midpoint of the fuselage might be nice though.

    Maybe Thrust likes to spin tail-first into the air these days?
