Hrm... if one were to build a version that could fly on MicroMAaxx motors, would that be called Micro Bertha?

I would think so. Sounds better than Blastula Bertha. lol
(for you non-biology folks: blastula - an animal embryo at the early stage of development when it is a hollow ball of cells)

I did a Micro Alpha that was painted like the Maxi Alpha of the late 70's but with a micro decal. I thought it would be a more fun downscale from maxi to micro than from the regular Alpha to micro.

I did a Maxi Alpha (not III) paint and decal scheme, but replaced "Maxi" with "Micro" in the decal. I guess it would officially be a Micro Maxi Alpha. I figured everybody that does micros probably had done a standard Alpha downscale.

I have no idea if this link works and I'm not sure it's the right image. I'm at work and can't see photobucket.

Super marketing idea ...

“Introducing the Micro Bertha ... they’re a blastula to fly!”
