To give me somthing to do when off work, with a de-calibrated head.

I thought Mmmm "what about that Bronco predator sitting there, so lonely next to the SK Reaper".

Dispite the instructions NOT telling which is which optional fuslarge bottom. I figured out the larger radome must be for the Recon version, having the synthetic aperture radar (SAR). (Or are they the same now ?)

The main brain strain, was getting the propellor around the right way. However a quick internet search convinced me it was RH spinning ? "push me" prop ? (forgive me I'm a jet guy).

I'm building the same kit. I had the same problem trying to figure out which bottom fuselage to use. I just compared the parts with the drawings on the decal location page. I think I painted mine Light Ghost Grey. I'll have to check when I get home.

Ok,....weekend update.

After a recovery from, a disastrous attempt at hand painting the underside white.

I am trying out a few mods. For both a port(RHS in the kit) side airscoop, and a satcom/Foxtel style "fuel tank" blister.

I am starting to belive that UAV's are simmalar to Marine Helo's (no two are alike !).

Anyway's, here is the current insparation.
