finally finished!

was definitely more than a weekend project as initially planned!

first, I identified the need to know a bit more about the Reaper, then I noticed that France operates a more modern version than the kit represented, then I needed to modify,....etc. you know this, don't you?

but here you are

Bigger than I thought. That sunlight reflection is one of those moments you know will never happen again. What weapons do they normally carry or are they strictly recon?

thanks everybody for your kind comments!

and to CaracalModels himself for commenting! without those decals I would probably not have bought the kit in the beginning! thanks for producing them in such quality!

:) :) and yes, it is big! (able to carry 2 GBU-12s and 4 Hellfires after all for several hours!)

French Reapers are strictly recon for the time being, probably starting soon to carry weapons though....
