Had a few little glitches here and there, but I'm glad to have it in the collection!

 

Thanks for looking in...

Very cool looking Trip-Trey Crusader! Did the conversion or kit come with the raised wing and off set flaps and slats, or did you do that work yourself? Certainly adds to the coolness of your build! Thanks for posting!

Hi Gil,

No the conversion kit came with only the nose, canopy, a new launch bridle attachment point and some decals.  The wing, etc. rework was first done with the kit parts, as I was only going to do the flaps, etc.  When I finally decided to do this aircraft, the wing tips looked so cool that I just had to raise them, and used the Wolfpack designs conversion kit for that. But,  the Wolfpack kit didn't want you to raise the wings, so I had to modify them also.  Everything is explained in the build thread, linked to in the first sentence above.
