Nicely done! Good to have a use for all the 'puffer' carcasses that litter the place, too.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

What about taking the grey box behind the cab away, and moving the reversed upper hull forward?
The former engine deck could replace whatever the grey box was, and the turret would be further forward and more balanced.
You could always shorten the engine deck, too.

I had the Twin mustang on my stash, so I acquired two mustangs to make fit

 ;D ;D

Truth be told, I'm kind of lamenting the fact that I didn't try to alter this thing a bit more than I have. I could have found some things to glue on here and there or re-shape or something but I wasn't thinking about it until I was well into paint.  :angel:

So anyway....  I found all the missing clear pieces!!!! I thought I threw them away. I have no idea how in the hell they got there, but they were in a bag with a sheet of transfers from some RAF kit. This bag was inside a cardboard envelope that contained part of my transfers stash. I draw a complete blank when I try to remember how/why they were put there but.... whatever! Glad to have them back.  ;D ;D

For today, I'm going to look this little dude over again and see if I'm missing any detail painting. I know I have a few little places to paint gold. I was going to leave them as they are, but it just so happens these are where a lot of the clear pieces go so these things will look better than with just paint. So glad I found them.

After that, I'm going to try to get it glossed. I have very little left in my can but I think I have enough to get it covered. I also still need to go through my transfers to find some to use on this. I tried to last night but shortly after making that post I went to bed. I accidentally took too much pain medicine and it wiped me out. I need one of them calendar box thingies for prescription pills so I don't do that again!  :o

But uhhh..... back on track...   I think I'm pretty much at the end of painting and construction after this. I did the gear doors and stuff yesterday, I just need to put that green/silver wash on them so there's very little left on this one, now!  :lol:

I'll believe it when I see one in the shops..........

Mind you, most LHSs tend to ignore the airliner market unless it's first release of a new Revell Airbus kit.
Sci-fi / 1:48 Maschinen Krieger 'Spatz'

Yes, I know, it's been too long since I posted anything on the forum, hope you'll still have me  ;D
Main reason for not posting has been not producing anything worth showing.

This one though I really like. It used to be one of my finished 1:20 Maschinen Krieger suits: the Fliege. I wanted to see what else I could do with it and go all Scale-o-rama on it's derrière. This is the result: a liaison craft in 1:48. I plan to give it a proper base (I do believe i say that with all my builds though, and it never seems to happen) With a pilot standing next to it.

Hope you like it, thanks for taking a look.

AFAIK Revell in Europe don't sell the 727-100 kit, but then they're in deep with Airbus so that may be part of the contract.

In the current catalog, along with their other Boeing aircraft.
