Title: Easiest AAR probe ever !
Post by: Captain Canada 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 !

And of course now I want to dig out my smaller scale and 350 scale ships to see what they have !

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.
