:clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: Outstanding work Grant :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

I can see what you mean about the folded wings hiding the detail, but think about all the detail in the wings that you'd hide with the wings extended. Tough choice, or you could just build a second one ? :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

Excellent work Grant.
I'm still going to fold the wings on mine to save some shelf space! And it would be a pity to hide that lovely wing fold detail.
