David was kind enough some photos today on his work. As mentioned earlier, Revell gave them their blessings for a conversion kit & even provided samples for prototyping. David's comments below:
I'm now in a made scramble to get the 1/72 Revell of Germany Type-9 fittings kit and SD ready for sale. The very, very low slung shafts require a specialized motor-bulkhead -- I'm working on that master right now.
This kit seems to be engineered for r/c -- the strut bearings, stern tubes and such can be used as-is. We secured written permission from Revell of Germany to use kit parts as masters, so that will save many hours of master making. A wonderful kit!
I'll be starting a WIP on this puppy as soon as I have a fittings kit in hand. A few weeks from now
