Haven't really been doing much modeling recently, so i slapped this one together. Not quite done yet. Paint need some touch ups, and the landing gear is yet to be fitted. Broke the propellers off though:

Cool!  What scale and kit did you build this from?

Starfix, and scale is somewhere between 1/72 and 1/48 :thumbsup:

:huh: I am not sure I understand all, but - as it is now ;D - I love it, as a glider or something :wub:
[the word "realistic" hurts my heart...]

Nah, Hungarian scientists found that by removing the propellers, the aircraft would become a lot more quiet, making it ideal for night-raids on RAF bases...

Thanks for the info.

I have heard much about Starfix kits but have not actually seen what the look like.

Trust me, it wasn't easy. Got to use a dremel on a model for the first time though! :D

Maybe the props are experimental Lucite ones to make it easier for the pilot to see through them.
In want of hobby space!  The kitchen table is never stable.  Still managing to get some building done.
