PZL-230 Scorpion 1:48
« on: November 11, 2010, 08:27:40 am »
Hello!

Because on last saturday I received two awards on model contest (for Bolo NIKE and for VF-0S) I'm trying to work even harder :) Today I finished model of proposed polish attack plane (sadly cancelled) PZL-230 Scorpion. I saw that there is a discussion about PZL-230  HERE. Model is in 1:48 , made from parts from two other models: SR-71 1:72 (engines and  aft part of fuselage) and 1:48 F-16 (cockpit , front part , wheel wells). And of course a lot of putty, spare parts and styrene :) I'm not so happy with result , I think I was fed up with it at the end. Here are some photos:

First a real one:


And now model:

Very nicely executed!  I still prefer the other version of the PZL-230 (the one with podded engines above the fuselage), but this is a nice rendering of the final version.

This is great.  Must look really cool on your shelf, too.  Black is always classy and distinct.   :thumbsup:
