Messerschultz Me 109-Q7 Libelle: Finished pics Pg 5.
« on: September 07, 2017, 02:09:27 am »
No real plan here other than to throw parts at each other and see what sticks, splash some paint on, slap on decals and then make up some Sciffy lies to fit the result.
I am starting with this...
Sci Fi Bf 109 G Start 7-9-17 by Fred Maillardet, on Flickr
...which consists of an Airfix BF 109-G, a bag of Academy A-37 parts (left over from the Soviet GB Myasishchev M-7) and a resin C130-J prop.
With 4 weeks to do it in I am trying tho channel Dizz.  I feel I am behind already...

Odd thing about the '109 kit.  It smells very strongly of tobacco.  Not the stale cancerous ashtray smell you get from kits that have been in a smokers house but the sweet smell a freshly opened punch of rolling or pipe tobacco has.  It's almost pleasant.
Its odd because my father gave me the kit and he has never smoked.

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

More done today.
Wings have been modified and large pieces removed from the fuselage to enable them to fit.
Last thing I did was glues some styrene sheet back on to fill some of the larger gaps which will otherwise be visible through the intakes.

Interesting! I couldn't visualise where this was going but, seeing it, it's certainly going somewhere good! :thumbsup:

That's looking awesome! It reminds me of something but I can't quite put my finger on it.  Maybe something from Crimson Skies?

The spinner is a resin C-130J item.  It has scimitar blades which would look really cool but would require very stalky undercarriage which would not.
It will therefore stay a jet and not compound powered.

You prolly won't like it when i'm finished Tophe as it is going to have weapons on it.

I added some gap filling plates to the engine intakes and exhausts today, attached the stabilisers and put some filler on it.
Next pics when I prime it.

Now, I have a decision to make about the wingtips.  Tanks or missiles?

part of me wants to say "hunters world " as a piece of sci-fi artwork, but so far the google fu is weak  :banghead:
I will now have to find it.
Im certain it was used as a White dwarf cover in  the 70s, or 80s.
