Cool pic. Thanks.

How is the base? Too thick?

Excellent. I wasn't sure how visible it would be.

Would you want to change the landing gear? They seem a bit like posts more than struts. I can throw a couple of pics of the ones I like your way.
Definitely.

Thanks, this is exactly the kind of review I need.

I don't think it's too thick, but I'm not sure what you were going for. I'd bet it would still be solid if you cut off about a 1/3 of it, if needed. It does look like it would be difficult to paint the bottom of the Scout, tho. 'Hard to get to', if you know what I mean.

I'm going to see if I can get some primer paint to try out and see what it looks like. It might look good now, but it might look different with a coat of paint on it.

Here's one I can think of right now. It doesn't show a front strut, tho. If you know who made this, please let me know. I forgot where it came from.



I figure we're 'beta testing' this a bit, so I'm trying to give you as much info as I can.

Technically, Andrew's isn't a Sulieman, as the proportions are wrong. The photos look good, however.

Made an temporary stand tonite for the Scout with .062 music wire from the hobby shop (pics below). They were out of normal stands. It's 1.57 mm wire with a little bit of Scotch tape where the Scout fits on, for those that like to Do It Yourself. Needed: Scotch Tape, Wire, Wire Cutters, Vice, and a Hammer

I'll try the primer tomorrow during the day.

Also, found out that it's not the resolution of the camera, it just can't focus on something that small. The background looks in focus. (EDIT: deleted other pics and took new ones with a different background)

Looks neat.
Fwiw, when I need a mini to sit on a stand but only in a temporary way, I use Blu-tack. It holds well, and is easy to pluck off of the mini and the stand once you are done with it.

Right, it's really a Solomon.

Supp7 *says* the height is 7.5m, but the pic of the Seeker shows it to be a little over 9m, not far off the 10m I use.
