Easiest AAR probe ever !
« on: November 25, 2020, 01:51:56 pm »
The prop shafts from a 700 scale Dragon HMS Invincible are a pretty close match to a 144 scale RAF AWACS type refueling probe ! I have two birds and one boat. Perfect !

Well that's VERY handy.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Very interesting. I tend to build my ships as waterline leaving many unloved keels, shafts and screws laying in their boxes.

excellent idea, especially if you build both small scale ships and aircraft :thumbsup: It could turn in to a lucrative business for someone with a 3D printer too, copying the prop shafts and selling them on as IFR probes for militarised transport aircraft.
