Default Avenger Guinevere, and she's pi**ed!

Or so that is what the intro says on the first page of the Excelsior Avenger Guinevere kit.

She of the Intergalactic Patrol, based at Luke Field, Arizona, is looking for revenge.
"The Galactic Pirates are on the run after injuring Lance Ableman in their last space duel upsetting Lance's girlfriend and fellow pilot Lila Goodbody.
"Lila takes off from Inter-Galactic Patrol's headquarters at Luke Field, Arizona in the new and improved three gunned Avenver Guinevere!

"They can run but they can't hide!"

The kit was a blast to build.
I flew it last Spring, and she flew straight and true.
I made my guns out of brass tubing.
One of my favorites, and she joins the Excalibur; I have not built the Dragon Ship, yet.

Thanks, guys!
You are too kind! Jon, I'll have to bring it to Orangeburg next time.

I've had it built since February of last year, but I did not even think about doing a build thread.
Gordy designed such a nice kit, I thought he might enjoy seeing someone else's in the flesh, so-to-speak.
I forgot to say his instructions are easy to follow, and his decals are fantastic, as you might well imagine.

Yes, I did enjoy that.

It's so....1950's Saturday morning sci fi.

I'm sure she drives up to her ship in a Nash Rambler.

She looks sweeeeet!

But don't pi$$ her off.
