... it is quite well known for our favorite editor to be a touch fussy about the pics that get in....

No? Really? Gosh, who would've thought it?

crumbs !!!!! must do better eh!!! ok Murice i have stood in the corner for 15 seconds and told myself off!

on a serious note it is not allways possible to take pictures mid build of an ARTF, as i am not the photographer this would entail meeting up with said photographer at a mutally convenient time and taking pictures mid build, somthing that is not allways possible as the aircraft only takes hours to finish, to stop for a few days whilst we take pictures of wood, is not really a starter, if anyone wishes to kit me out with a fancy cannon camera to take these pics myself then please feel free to!!

pictures of most fittings and fixtures are always taken, if the editor choses to print lead, then that is up to him ( personally i thought it was an inspired choice(kiss, kiss))

to a certain degree Maurice you have to put a bit of faith in me, if the wood was not of a good quality or well assembled, i would have told you. and i did mention in the review there is loads of room for battery fondelling, my 4s 5000mah pack went in easily, in fact only the fuel tank was a tight squeeze!!

As i alluded to in the review not all pheonix kits have been of good quality (frog spit and pallet wood) but this new type is a world away from these older versions

i have a trad built kit up comming and rest assured this will have everything photgraphed, even me in my undies!!

oh hang on............... wrong mag!!!

however point made Maurice and we will take the odd pic of the internals from now on!!

I reckon that would merit the front page that Lee! However it would disadvantage those modellers of shorter stature once RCM&E goes "top shelf only" in WHS.

I can assure you there is very much less of Our Lee than there used to be. Neverthe less, his stature in my eyes remains the same...
