WIP: CAC Boomerrit (a Merlin Boomerang)
« on: November 08, 2017, 03:44:24 am »
The story behind the build:
Itís a CAC Boomerang, but... with an in-line engine bolted to the front in the shape of a Merlin 32.

Why Boomerrit? An aboriginal word for sword, which perhaps corrupted from Ďsabreí, which ITTL, was the power plant the CAC ordered from Britain, but unboxed a Merlin instead😂, but they kept the name...



Anyway, itís early days, with a fair bit more sanding, putty and more sanding still to go. The donor kit parts were a Special Hobbies 1/72 Boomerang which I think is a nice little kit in itself and I picked up cheaply, and some donar parts from a Barracuda mk2 kit that I picked up for a few bucks at a Canberra swap meet last year, and was never going to build and was pretty stodgy.



If the images donít show up, let me know :banghead: Iím also not sure if this is the right board

Nice idea.  The big chin intake suits the the tubby Boomerang. :thumbsup:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Looking good.

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

It's a bit dark to make out details but what I can see looks good! :thumbsup:
