Old Wombat's (possible) Scale-o-rama Builds
« on: February 09, 2019, 08:15:45 am »
Over on BtS they have a Scale-o-rama GB happening & have 2 x possible entries, if I get the time to do either.

Below are the obligatory Box Shots. Let's see if you can guess, given the clues in the photo's, what I intend doing.

#1:


#2:


Yes, I'm whiffing the whifs! ;)

The RF-19 Stealth Drone is almost at the painting stage. I'll take some photo's before I prime her, though, so you can get an idea of what's been done.


PS: One thing I must say is the kit, although very simple, is terrible! Flash, off centre mouldings & pathetic parts fit. Oh, for an Eduard 1/144 kit of this! :rolleyes:

I didn't realise how small it was at first.

Yup, ain't big. In 1/35 it scales out to about 3.5m long. ;)

That second one looks like it could be made into an alternative aircraft from Raiders of the Lost Ark

So where does the 1/35 pilot sit?
 :unsure:

Fred

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

... Of course. Logical, when you think of it...  :rolleyes:

So is the Arado going to be something similar, but with a larger ordnance load?
Or a carrier for a 1/72 drone/fighter based on another 1/144 YF-19?

the 1:35 pilot stands between the twin tails surfboard style  :thumbsup:
you use a thumb controller and an attached cable like they do on jet skis   :wacko:

Redone 19/08/15  the things you learn, give your mind the wings to fly, and the chains to hold yourself steady added 07/10/18   take off and nuke the site form orbit, nope, time for the real thing, CAM and gridfire, call special circumstances.   wow, its like freefalling into the Geofront

 ;D ;D :thumbsup:

That's not a silly idea, though - very cool thought. Hmm - no, too many other project ideas.
