In the interview Lenny said there’s room to modernize with the o-ring joes, he just wanted to start off with a verbatim recreation. I’d like to see what a modern take would look like from them. I imagine trying to hide the metal shoulder rivets might be challenging for construction unless they go all PVC for the upper arms(and I’d rather they didn’t use PVC, I’ve already got mixed feelings about them using PVC for the lower arms). They also mentioned that they bought a couple 1983 Skystrikers to tear apart and rebuild for the sake of redesigning the new one. Due to the age of the Tomcat, Northrop Grumman was more willing to work with them. He said their team member Chris is a big jet guy so they both spent a lot of time working on it.
