I "like" the fuel tanks... :-) They look like little Snapple bottles, complete
with screw on caps. LUCAS must have branched out into the fuel tank biz...

I think the Puppeteer should be classed in the stand off and squint class. Not
even close to true scale outlines... However, with a bit of work it would make

all that area and light loading really tosses it around in a breeze.
