It's time to start researching sci-fi shuttles for alternative paint schemes and kitbashes! Just like the Outlander and several other past kits, I see lots of potential for multiple builds in various configurations. I forsee some cool future/retro paint schemes such as TWA, PanAm, etc. too.

I'm thinking a "Hugo Drax" Moonraker Special or a Buck Rogers "Ranger 3" shuttle.

It needs to have the "Drax" logo plastered on the side.
A "Zorin Industries" sub-sponsor for an "all villain" theme would be good too.

I am wondering if the glider would get too heavy with an 808 keychain camera added to it.
