Wow!  I was trying to figure out why a company would be crazy enough to make 102s in that scale.  I would never have guessed they were scratchbuilt.  Very impressive, and super cool diorama  :bow:

3D printing is the way to go for things that small such as the aircraft found here.

SUPER idea, love the ice plates leaning against the hull of the sub.  :thumbsup: :bow:

When these are done you should photograph them lined up along the top of your B36 Cropsprayer.


As per your suggestion  :thumbsup:  (spray bars removed for new project)



And thanks for the title suggesting sideshow- now Ice Station Delta!

Thanks for noticing the broken ice Kit!

Thanks guys.

Heh heh heh.   :thumbsup:

One more suggestion.  A bulldozer for runway prep.  Or maybe a zamboni?   ;D

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Look closely- there are two dozers for grooming the runway!  One on each end of the line up of the four F-102's .  1/700 scale Tiger tank with turret removed, with a scratch dozer blade, and a small platform at the rear end for the operator, to make a mini dozer. I did think about a Zamboni!   ;)
