    Hello all

    One of my current projects is converting a Ron Shanko kit into a "Hero" version, I thought I would share the experience of my reverse engineering thru the Hero pictures on the web.

    Collecting the metal for the project.

    P-1 actuator parts test fit before silver soldering it all together.
