    ?? Is Seaspray some ginormous type of hovercraft I don't know about? His alt-mode never struck as being one of those big channel-crossing ferry hovercraft. But I never owned the original.

    A very astute observation that totally necessitated bumping the thread for MFT Astrotrain.

    Last Sunday should have been finished Chinese holidays. But I think all would be postponed because of Corona virus

    FYI that mail/factory worker don’t come back until about 3 weeks after the holiday. So another week or two for things to start moving in a normal year.

    His base altmode is pretty big. Here's OG Seaspray:

    [​IMG]

    Note the white lump near the back just under the props. It looks like an additional place for people to sit/pilot the craft.

    While Seaspray doesn't appear to correlate with any real life hovercraft, just guesstimating from the windows at the front of the craft, we can make a reasonable guess that he's probably not smaller than this thing:

    [​IMG]

    It's a Griffon 2000TD hovercraft: roughly 12x5 meters (36x15 feet) and between 3.5-8 tons, depending on loadout - substantially larger than any three cars. Yet Seaspray is a weensy feller.

    There's that episode where he hangs out with the Mer-folk on some other planet, and falls in love with a lady there. I can't remember if those humanoid beings were human-sized or not, but there's a scene where his lady friend rides on top of him. She's like half his size.
