Aircraft / Avro Archer F mk3

Finally getting somewhere with this, just the paint to sort out, as the Tamiya raf dark green, isn't dark enough, so I am waiting for a Vallejo bronze green to arrive and go over the green. Here's some pictures of what I have done so far
The weapons will be externally carried, and consist of a pair of firestreaks and a pair of genies. The canopy, was redesigned in to the mark 3, as the pilots all complained about the lack of visibility, so a newer, and slightly better one was designed and fitted. The aircraft is in service with 19 squadron based in Germany, and it's task was t intercept Soviet bombers. More back story when I have done some more work and pictures.

Some wonderfully crazy Mech stuff:

Wow indeed. How did you do those bloody thin lines all around the cowling?
Well I have decided on the main weaponry to be carried by the aircraft

Just got to decide what I am going to hang from the outer wing pylons, soviet style rocket pods looks like a good idea at the moment.

One thing that I am going to be looking for is a 1/72 Hasegawa Tornado GR1/4 tail fin so that I can use it for a whiff version of the EF3

When I lived there, there was quite a good model shop in Tempelhofer Damm, just south of the airfield.

Is it still there?

Thanks!! Pretty cool. I was kind of wondering anyway so the information is welcome.  :lol: :lol:

As far as this one goes.... I've done some more work on it today. I've finalized the paint situation on the gear doors and tail planes. I just need to get them gloss coated along with the bottom of the plane itself then I can start working on the transfers.

Probably won't get back to it for at least a week or more because I can't spend any money on hobbies and stuff right now lest I run myself out of it.  ;D
Like a second life? Is this the airplane of Jesus Christ? :unsure: ;D

Methinks you're thinking "resurrection", there Tophe, lol

Deep down inside it has some Su 27 lineage, if memory serves!  :mellow: :thumbsup:

In Macross Zero, the anime the Sv-51/52 are originally from, they're made with plans and information stolen by espionage by the 'anti-UN', a holdout group of nations that resist unification of a world government. They build them using the same reverse-engineered technology that later leads to the VF-1 fighter of the first Macross series (or, in the west, Robotech).
Like the VF-1 - and its' limited production prototype the VF-0 - the Sv-51 transforms into a bird-like 'gerwalk' mode for low-speed flight and VTOL, an aircraft mode, and a robot 'Battroid' mode.
All three modes of both craft make use of weapons on the wing hardpoints, as well as an underbody high-speed multibarrel autocannon that becomes a hand-held rifle in the non-aircraft mode.
The Anti-UN was comprised of some countries that were formerly part of the USSR - as Macross was originally written during the Cold War, and had a 'Global Civil War' between the East and West in its' backstory) - and some of their aircraft industries were involved in developing and building the Sv-51, which is why it has a strong resemblance to the Sukhoi. There's scenes in Macross Zero with MiG-29's and F-14's also modified and enhanced with minor applications of reverse-engineered alien technology from the spaceship that starts off the whole franchise and series, and leads to the transforming fighter planes.

Of course, none of this is actually relevant to your build, but I thought it was something I could contribute, haha.
I do like the way this is shaping up though. I have often thought it would be cool to build some things blending more real world and macross influenced stuff together, but the kits aren't cheap, sadly, and are mostly in 1/72, which isn't my scale of choice.
