If they are the ones I'm thinking of you should be able to drill out the rivets on the bottom and take them apart that way.

Thanks, I'll give it a try. I removed the screws but that didn't do anything.

Which one do you have? I have several. If the same I could look it over.

I have not done this on a Modern "Heros" series rig, but have disassembled 2 of the OLD ALF TDA.
Yes, all you need to do on those is drill out the rivet holding the chassis to the body.
I have shown pics before, but can again here if wanted.

I do have a second Cherry Hill NJ Mack CF Aerialscope I could part out/rebuild though.
Got it Cheap at Tuesday Morning a few years ago (Only $7.oo +tax due to broken parts/damage)
I did get Some parts from Corgi, but not all needed.
I later got a complete Mint one.
