Wow! I imagine the noise of such a monster... :thumbsup:


I'm trying not to, the real one was bad enough!  :o

That is so, so cool. I'd never have thought of TAA as an operator but that scheme and markings fit perfectly! Gorgeous work.
With warm regards from Whanganui, New Zealand

TAA, Fly the noisy way... ;D

Thanks folks.  The transfers are from the Airfix Fokker Friendship.
I'm pleased with how it's coming out but I have made a few silly mistakes.  At least one of which I can't hide.
It's sitting on the table next to by bench and I can't resist flicking the rotors round everytime I walk past.

For some reason I have this image of some itinerant moggie being totally engrossed by it  ;D

Saw a pic of the pre-production 1/48 scale resin 3D printed Rotodyne someone is producing today.

Thanks Womby.

Any cat foolish enough to trespass into the shed would leave spray painted the first colour that fell to hand.

I'm keen to pick up another of these (1/72 obviously, although the smaller Revell one would do at a pinch) but they are like hens teeth.

I see them pop up from time to time in the States for reasonable money. I bought one just yesterday in fact after going to look again after I saw yours. They usually are being sold for $60-100 though and I'll never pay that much. This one was $28 after shipping. Just under the limit of what I would spend on one.



Complete but the parts bags aren't sealed. Problem is, shipping from here to there can be a bit expensive sometimes. There were times I had to pass on these when they were going for dirt cheap and I suppose I could ax you(y'all) if you want 'em.  :unsure:   About a month ago I saw one for $10. Someone bought it, but it wasn't me...  :banghead:

I don't think I've ever had a 'dyne kit that the parts in bags, just LOADS of bits bouncing about loose, most of them having fallen off the sprues!  :-\

See if you can find the Revel kit, it's more detailed but an odd scale at 1/78.  A very nice kit for it's age, it has a full interior and passengers.  It was re-released within the decade, so might be easier to find than the Airfix kit.

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.

$US 28 is about $AU41 today.  Not a bad price.
If I was whiffing another one then the Revell kit would be as good as the Airfix as the scale wouldn't matter too much.
I would like to build a stock one though so that should be in the one true scale.
Of course, should I get any further with my plans for a Super Rotodyne (Superdyne?) then i will start from a different place.  Osprey fuselage looks promising.

Started the last lap on the 'dyne 2.0 today.  Began work on the undercarriage.  The A10 wheels looked too large in diameter to me so I had a rummage in a parts box and found some smaller replacements.  No idea what they are off.  I also, after looking at the thickness (both Rotodyne and A10) and shocking ejector pin marks (Rotodyne) on thThis would have been fine except that while detailing it I had painted, transferred and cleared the body and I cracked the top fuselage joint seam while fitting it.  This crack is now hidden by a faired in antenna.

Thanks, Mossie, I'll have a go! Sounds like a fun kit. Fred has the right idea, if I whif it then the size difference doesn't bother me any. I'd like to militarize one.
