Amtrak Project.3

Converting the Sea Arrows would mean removing the tail fins which i did by drilling out the block on the underside and taking the plane apart.

The tails were then sawed off from the main body, bit of an effort as they are metal, and the plane reassembled. In book one the Skyhawk is open canopy but by the start of book two it has been upgraded to closed canopy.
I have shown the reassembled plane next to one of my completed UNSC  and also a drivers from ion Age miniatures in an open canopy configuration. The books describe the engines as slung under the wings but I am happy with one on top, though i might look at building one in when I tidy up the rear, possibly build one out of Green Stuff.
