I have a set of the old Italeri 1/35 US Marines incoming.
OK, it's old and there are better out there, but perfectly fine for my wants and needs.

And there are a couple of them that don't have bloused trousers, good for civilians.  :thumbsup:

<...> Couple of choppers from Fujimi <...>

The Gazelle has got something distinctly sci-fi-ish about it when seen from this angle. Looks like the cockpit should be part of a mech or anti-grav vehicle of some sort. Maybe even with the HOT missile tubes.
Cheers,

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Yeah - put it on a a truck chassis as the cab - then have it able to crank up and take off...


... wait, that's not so original after all...

Maybe that's what the Blue Thunder's designers thought when they chose it for the conversion. ;)

I must admit I keep looking at Trumpeter's pre and post Dreadnoughts and my wallet runs away  ;) Seriously it would be interesting to hear your views on the Dreadnought ?

I'll give you a quick In-Box Review, Chris, because I have no idea when I'll build her ... Unless it's for the In the Navy GB. :unsure:

Well, now that i have it in my hands, i can call the Blue Thunder helicopters collection complete! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:



Now, it would be great to get the 1/32 Tamiya F-16... Although it's a C variant and the one used in the movie was an early F-16A but that's just a minor detail...  :wacko: :wacko:

More 1/48 Armour for the PDRV.  This time a Tamiya Su-122.

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