Cut the tail fin down, give it a T tail, a clear canopy, some gun positions and some pusher propellers and it's USSR 1930's secret long range bomber  :thumbsup:

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

I revive this thread because I stumbled across THIS thing:the "Gigant" from the anime Mirai Shonen Conan, a Hayao Miyazaki design.



It's 1/700, but still 25cm wingspan. Molded in dark gray plastic. Includes a display stand and a little Falco. Could make a great Captain America diorama over a sea scenery with a ship below?

Has some more potential, I think?

FALCO (remember the singer?) in 1/72 from Aoshima:

I don't particularly like the submarine type rivets in Warhammer 40000 style and the weak fan in the rear, but the model can be easily used for some kitbashing/whiffing.
More details here.

Yup! For an amusing moment this was all I could see, before the image loaded, & I was half expecting to see exactly what it said, whilst wondering why on God's green Earth someone would actually want to do such a bizarre thing.

Had a cassette of Einzelhaft wa-ay back when.

It looks like Aoshima are replacing their rather poor 1/700 Illustrious class with a new tooling  :thumbsup:

Just noticed that Aoshima do these two splendid things. Hannants have very little Aoshima stuff, but SOME of the range (by no means all of it however) is available in the UK from Kent Models and Expo Drills & Tools.

Aoshima's 1/72 vehicles are nice little kits from my limited experience.  They seem to concentrate on home market stuff.

There was a batch of the cute little Material Carrier vehicles in this country a while back. I decided not to buy one 'cos I wasn't flush with cash at the time, and have regretted it ever since. I had half a memory of buying one at a show either this year or last (after I got a job again) but there's none in my stash: maybe somebody else bought one and I just looked at it... :unsure:
