Petlyakov PE.2 converted => British Aeronautics BA.23hf
« on: April 16, 2012, 03:21:12 am »

So heres the big idea:

1 airfix PE.2
1 Penknife
Multiple odds and ends.

The idea was to have the double vertical stabilisers on the engine nacelles, with maybe added extras and a rear gunner.


I started by rounding the ends of the Horizontal stabilisers as they would no longer hold the Vertcals.

I then cut a rectangular section into each Vertical stabiliser, so that they could fit onto the wing and nacelle. To add them on,  I cut a vertical notch in the rear point of the nacelle, and into the coresponding point on the upper wing.

Photos to be included later.

I like it......add lots of steampunky stuff too around the engine cowlings.

I'd use a breadknife....

To post pictures, you need to host them somewhere else in the internet. Flickr and Photobucket are among the services that others use here. Then you have to make an image link, when you are making the post.
