That's where T.J., Streets, and Deacon sit. (Showing my age with that one. And my bad taste in 70's television.)

The show SWAT was NOT bad television; it was 70's TV at it's FINEST.
I own the first season on DVD....think that was Robt. Urich's first well known series.

It was the '70's. Face it. It was pretty cheesy. It had a disco-influenced soundtrack and they never failed to get their man. Hondo was another name that I've since come up with, but I think I'm still missing one.
That's out on DVD? Wow, can Charlie's Angels be far behind?
I know Urich did Vegas, but what was the one where he lived in an old firehouse?

Are you thinking of "Spenser For Hire"? That was a fun series - With Avery "Capt. Sisko" Brooks as Hawk!

That was it. I was never a regular, but I'd occasionally catch an episode. I haven't thought about Robert Urich in a long time.

He was Dan Tanna, too, wasn't he? He died a few years ago - his cancer came back.

I enjoyed his portrayal of Rocky Blier. Wonder if Blier went to his funeral...

With a little luck, this gets painted tomorrow. (It's supposed to be almost 60 degrees here. I've got quite a bit of painting to do.)

Very nice build.
How much weight did you have to put in the nose for the cluster?

Bill,

Looking at the pic of the aft end of the cluster-mount it looks like the centering ring above will block a lot of the ejection charge.

Have you ever used this style mount before? If so, I'm curious as to how much damage the ring above sustains, or if the motors eject themselves.
