Thanks! As I'm sure many people have discovered before me, the zizy designs look awesome, but aren't super sturdy. So I am trying to rejig the upper body, but work keeps getting in the way.

Rebuild from the ground up with a MUCH more solid core. Happy with the direction this is going.

Very nice; something about this new frame just screams "dragonfly" to me.

Me too! I've only just realised the wings only juuuuust fit in The Box, but they're a system anyway.

Thank you!

Here's that squad bricked up. Really pleased with how they look in these colours.

Wow, these look even better in the brick than the render! Really love those jet/exhaust nozzles on the back!
