My PSS mass build effort

Hi all! Well, this is the start of my build thread for a mk iid Hurricane for the PSS mass build. I should come clean early, and mention that the parts I'm starting from are already well under way - I have the bits of the beta build that Phil and Matt put together to prove out kits, and fixed so many problems from.
So basically, mine might not look like yours!
I've gone for the mk iid with underslung 40mm cannon, as I think that looks far more evil. They will dropped before landing either via eflight release mechanisms (if space allows), or a pin-and-latch system if it doesn't. I can then also fit a couple of 3D printed 250lb bombs for the bombing comps too.
Here are a few more pictures for inspiration, actual model progress shots to follow

A quick check at lunchtime revealed that the wing is too thin for the e-flight release units, so an alternative will be drawn up today on SolidWorks that will utilise a single 9g or less servo to release the payloads.
Oh, found an actual real-life picture of JV-Z on t'internet:
Just goes to show how little you should trust the plastic kit bashers - their camo positioning is all wrong, oops!

Great choice Andy, I hope you will be mimicking the exhaust plume stain on yours!
