OK here is the story. I was in Pegasus hobby shop. A mecca here in Southern California. And I was looking at all the best of the best models available in the world and I came upon this,(second photo). It was the most gosh ugly morphed out worst undeniably stupid way bad, did I mention hideous looking piece of box art I had ever seen!! I had to have it! So I picked it up and was walking around this very large candy land of model dreams store and I came upon one of the owners and struck up a casual conversation. He began by saying, “Oh, you found it”. It was marked twenty dollars. I said yes, I couldn’t help myself. He said I think you will be happy with your purchase. I felt like Harry Potter in the magic wand shop. So I took it home and opened the box. The darn thing is motorized from the factory!!! And it looked nice! So here is the rest of what I added. LED headlights and a infrared light to pin the target. This was done by adding a red LED inside a plastic tube with a pinhole at the blunt end. Hey, it works. Thanks for reading my novel. I hope you like my true story. I guess you can’t judge by the cover.
