Almost verbatim, now that I'm double checking it. The parts list actually reads: Stabiliser Jets x4.modelglue wrote:XV566 wrote: It almost shows what might be jet backs (but that's dubious. It seems absurd that those little bits coming off the back are anywhere near big enough to thrust something that large)
In the OP, they are mentioned:SinisterSamurai wrote:In the components list is a very small part labeled "Reactor," and of note is the x4 stabilizer jets. There are two head options.
Not sure if that was verbatim, or just an observation.
The parts list is as follows:
[spoiler=]1-4, Torso front/back/left/right.
5-6, Intake left/right
7-8, Head 1-2 (Your choice)
9 Sensor (the circular bit in the right "breast" of the torso)
10 Reactor (small part, goes into the back of the torso)
11 Support Weapon Connecting Pin x2
12 Smart Missile System x2
13-15 Burst Cannon Turret/Left/Right (x2 each)
16 Burst Cannon Front x4
19 Groin Plate
20-31 are all leg and foot parts, and there's 20 parts for them all together. lower left/right leg, upper left/right leg, knee x2, ankle joint x2 outer toe pivot x2, knee joint x2, foot socket x2, front/inner/outer toe (x2 each).
32, Stabiliser Jets x4.[/spoiler]
True, the size comparison shown above is with the legs standing straight, and the instructions seem to explicitly advice against that. They've got a little box that describes the range of motion for the legs, and standing seems to be approx 90 degree bend at the knee. So it should be shorter than we are seeing.
Before you ask, these are not my pictures. But, you can see some of the color coding on it, which is real nice compared to my B&W Pathfinder/Piranha instructions.
