We get many requests for micro down scales of many of our popular kits.  This lead to the Diminutive Deuce and Petite Praetor, just to name two.  One design that we have looked at long and hard was the Borealis.  While it may be considered just too complex to do an accurate downscale of such a detailed model in the world of Micro to the MAXXTM, we came darned close with the Dead Ringer!

Boasting 3 large hoop fins, supported by laser cut fiber fins, the Dead Ringer is a marvel of engineering in miniature.  While we don't duplicate the intricate ducting of the Borealis, the Dead Ringer certainly bears a resemblance with sweeping grace all her own.

Check out the photo's below to see how this model evolved into what you see before you.  As micro models go, the Dead Ringer will be a trend-setter in your growing fleet of Micro to the MAXXTM

Aim for the ceiling, and try not to miss!TM
