Haaaa!  "Viper."    Figures.  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Yup, another one, although this kit is more like the prototype, which makes it perfect for my second Viper with a fenestron tail rotor. :mellow:
I'm going to try to make it a real Viper with all the real world mods using the kityhawk kit as reference, then it'll get the fenestron.

1:72 R2-D2, is that as small as it sounds? Considering how small 1:72 pilot figures etc are... :o

I'll have to come up with some sort of something for liveries. The decals are looking non-useable but something like the orange/red/blue  United tulip scheme would be pretty cool perhaps.


NICE one Brad!  :thumbsup: I bet that wasn't cheap!  :o

Drawdecal do some fantasy scheme decals for that kit, or did at one stage. Maybe worth a look at their site.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

From Frontline Hobbies.  I ordered an extension for a board game board and these needed to accompany it to ward against the 'rona (well it did come from New South Wales).
Both bought just because I liked the look of them.

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Oops, should be 1:12. Freudian Slip.  ;)

Still, a 1/72 R2-D2 would be handy for putting into many of this world's aircraft... ;)

One of the various Star Wars X-Wing kits comes with an R2D2 as its backseater, and I think it's quoted as '1/72'. I've got one somewhere but I've NO idea where it is in The Loft. :(

The IBG PZL is a nice kit, as all their kits are. If Japanese then give the PZL a Torpedo ? Or just say it's Polish Navy ?

My hobbyboss  Mil Mi -4 hound  arrived this afternoon, and after a quick  comparison of  parts on the cockpit, to those that are missing from  the Kopro  kit, I  won't be able to  copy any of them to replace the  missing  ones.  I  may have a burst of inspiration at some stage and work out how to measure  the inside  space and the angle of  the 2 missing  bulkheads, and scratch build  them that way.  I think I have some  seating  that should  suffice.  The hobbyboss kit is very nicely detailed  I  must say, and my only decision to  make for it is whether to build it royal navy  or RAF.

OH brilliant! THANK YOU. That's what I want... I was wondering about piecing together some of the stuff I have but if someone else already did the work I'll gladly give them my money for a sheet or two.

No, not cheap..... after shipping the models were $60 a piece. Just one of those things I had to have. Could have been worse... I remember back before I forgot that these things existed (the kit) I saw some go for more than that so one one hand, it was a princely sum, but on the other, it could have been worse. But hell man, the box even is in nice shape so I got ahold of a "good one" I guess. Not factory sealed but it doesn't need to be because these bad boys will be built!

Courtesy of a "Deal Of the Day" sale at Sprue Brothers, Great Wall T-33A. My first GWH kit. Looks nice in the box with great detail. I hear fit around the lower fuselage/wing needs some care but supposed to be a good kit
So I got that going for me...which is nice....

Brad, this time it's not a Viper... ;D

Two 1:72 resin/white metal conversion sets for British tanks from S&S Models:
- Valentine mk XI conversion (turret, might end up on a leftover Matilda II chassis)
- Crusader AA mk2 turret conversion (turret, might end up on a leftover Valentine chassis from a Bishop SPG)
