This is picture is of the pre-loved and slightly tatty Cheetah I got off eBay, which was sans butt-plate. As luck would have it I could find no pictures on the web of the Cheetah taken from the rear. Fortunately, I have friends who have complete Cheetahs to send me pictures of what the butt-plate should look like.
However, as luck would have it–or not, as luck only involved winning an eBay listing–I managed to buy a Whitecat. This has the same V-motor butt-plate as the Cheetah, so I am now using this as a template to fabricate a replacement for my model.
And here's the cleaned up Cheetah awaiting assembly.
So, more updates to come, but now it's time to go off and shoot pointy sticks at round things: archery being lots more fun to do when the weather is nice.
