I went through all the books for descriptions of The Blue Beetle, and this is what I came up with. If anyone has any descriptions that I missed please let me know. I’m going to recreate the latest incarnation of The Blue Beetle and I want it to be as accurate as possible. 


I’m attaching another Small favor drawing with a dark blue engine cover to represent the fact that zombie Phil pulled it off during Dead Beat, but the fact that it’s blue still fits in with the color descriptions of the beetle. Technically it’s never described as being a different color but I think the back half was looking kinda’ plain. 

Alos I have started my actual build you can follow my progress on the Jim Butcher forums here: http://www.jimbutcheronline.com/bb/index.php/topic,42493.0.html


Sometimes the most remarkable things seem commonplace. I mean when you think about it jet travel is pretty freaking remarkable. You get in a plane it defies the gravity of a entire planet by exploiting a loophole with air pressure and it flies across distances that would take months or years to cross by any means of travel that has been significant for more than a century or three. You hurtle above the earth at enough speed to kill you instantly should you bump into something and you can only breathe because someone built you a really good tin can that seems tight enough to hold in a decent amount of air. Hundreds of millions of man-hours of work and struggle and research blood sweat tears and lives have gone into the history of air travel and it has totally revolutionized the face of our planet and societies.

But get on any flight in the country and I absolutely promise you that you will find someone who in the face of all that incredible achievement will be willing to complain about the drinks. The drinks, people.
