I found the same Tamiya 1/350th set in my stash you have Tophe. I pulled out the S-3 Vikings and with a little inspiration from Stratolaunch and White Knight I came up with this small satellite launcher. Not sure if I want to make it NASA, Navy or private company yet.





First coat of white so far. The satellite launcher is a 1/72nd rocket from the spare parts box.
There's someone in my head, but it's not me!

Actually I friend of mine from Starship Modeler website sent me several spruces from his stash. Now I have to think of what to do with the other aircraft!

Ahem, with my big fingers, it is less easy to colour canopies than with computer at 1600% zoom...
As well (or as mediocre) with the A-7Z...

Now zwilling the A-6s into a single double-plane/twin. It is not decided yet if it will be biplane or tandem wing, canard or T-tail...
