A Duster for Punky!

Welcome to a quicker build than usual (for me!)
The old FT Duster, or "Duttie" to my 3 yr old Grandson, who's inspiring this Build.

We watched the Pixar movie "Planes", and he was so excited about it!

He may end up throwing into a Door, but it will be his!
I'd just like to see if it flies first....

This will be haphazard, like I'm building it, between two other Planes and 2 Crawler projects. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Did more tonight....
First, THANK YOU Chris!!! @BATTLEAXE
I may never use anything but an Iron for Bevels again! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ It's SO MUCH easier, neater, and like Chris said in his Video, the melted Foam becomes Plastic-Like, and quite rigid.

I'm going to try to describe my "Bulletproof Power Pod" at some point.... I'll probably put it in the BATTLEAXE Tips and Tricks Thread. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Building on the Fuse Doubler/P.P. Guide idea from the same Thread. This stops the Power Pod exactly where the Skewers go in!
With an open top, this really wasn't necessary...
But I just thought of the idea tonight. ๐Ÿ˜‹

.... This one isn't glued in. The BBQ Skewer will HOPEFULLY stop a rocketing Battery. The Foam Block is press fit though. Something else I just came up with.

STILL wondering what I'm going to use for the Eyes....
Ideas??? ๐Ÿ˜Š

Another look at Ironed Edges... Maybe too shallow, but I like it. We'll have to see what happens.

I dig it @PoorManRC, You have done this build justice man. Greyson will not only be proud to own it but more so proud to say Grandpa made it for him. Really from the heart man.

Merry Christmas to you and yours. God Speed buddy
Thank you and Merry Christmas to you and yours!! ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…

He's an incredible little Fighter, and my Miracle. I'm more than happy to do this for him, even if he destroys it.
If so I can build another!! ๐Ÿ˜‰
Thanks so much for the invaluable Tips!! I just wish I had looked at it sooner. The new addition of the Covering Iron that Rockyboy gave me has SAVED my Fingers!

This Build has even inspired me to come up with NEW Tricks!
..... This is also my first Build with an actual "Swappable" Power Pod.

Looks good so far man. I think it's awesome of you doing a build for the little man. :) Can't wait to see the finished project. The battery hatch looks good too! ;)
Possibly my best Hatch idea yet... ๐Ÿ’ก
I'm just waiting to be able to afford some Orange Paint and I'm done โœ”

I'm trying to thin out some of my OVERFLOW of simultaneous projects!! ๐Ÿ˜ณ
