As my Me-2025 and Ju-86Ka are in the boring PSR-hardwork status :angry:, I needed to create projects again to restore my enjoyment in modelling... :lol:
The next one (and last before I enter the 3-big-ones very last) is the OV-10D Bronco Hasegawa 1/72 :blink:.
I like its twin-boom layout and pretty nose (without long-nose addition) but I need to whif it somehow. :blink:
The first idea was an asymmetric single engine version, all right, but I hope to do better.

As my always-principle is decreasing span drastically, this will be of couse a biplane, but that was a true North-Am project and I need to be more uncommon. I plan to be over-asymmetric this way:

Ahem... bumps and holes in the wing will make me change my project. I have not skills enough to scratchbuild that much from such a basis... :-\

Here is the update project principle:

How about cockpit on the front end of one boom, pusher engine on the back of the pod?

Interesting idea... while I fear I would need two kits... and the widths do not match... :-\

Thanks.
Building goes on. With this tiny span, I 'seriously' consider making it a triplane

I didn't mean have two cockpits in total. Put the cockpit pod in the boom position and stick a cut-off bit of boom on the back of it to get the fins in line. Then use the front end of the chopped-up boom to make a pusher engine nacelle in the middle, where the podused to be.

Where's my beer ?

Thanks once more Weaver, your invention is clearly better than mine... while I lack the skills to make it plastic, I fear :-\
Thanks Captain, here is the detailed project of asymmetric triplane:

hi tophe, this project looks promissing.


best regards

Tophe

Thanks.
The starboard boom is cut, glued to the pod (into a fuselage), putty is added (next step: sanding)
