I’m sure we’ve all seen the old Battle of Britain movie stars covered in dust. These were part of the private collection of Connie Edwards. I intend to use the Revell 109G-6 kit with the Attitude Aviation conversion to replicate a part of this scene.

After 45 minutes in the cave I came this far:

Kit and conversion courtesy of conversion designer and 3d artist Ronnie Olsthoorn and Attitude Aviation.

stay tuned.

inspired idea :)

 

I love this lens you bring to modelling Jeroen - makes me think I need to think wider than just building an aeroplane..

 

can't wait to see this one

 

Peter

I’m thinking we all do. You folks see the world of modeling differently than I.  All I’ve ever thought is to create a complete miniature totally believable aircraft model as seen through the eyes of a pilot walking up to go flying. You guys take it way past my vision. I’m often left speechless in awe.

Looking forward to seeing your vision come to fruition.  Couldn't make myself build a damaged 109, tho.  Love em too much.

Yet every time we crack open a beer can or Coca Cola, we’re probably sipping from a recycled 109.

Hmmm...I don't know about that. According to all my old advertisements from the late 50s/early 60s soda cans were initially made from tin. Bethlehem Steel especially loved blabbing about it in Life all the time. I think a lot of that old aluminum got recycled prior to that era.

One has to wonder where it all went.  Not that it matters.  Just like all of the water in the world has been re-used over the millennia.  Your morning coffee probably had Pancho Villa's urine in it.:rofl:

Yeah, I hit you where it hurt, you nail me to the wall.  As long as it’s not Santa Ana or my ex Wife’s urine, I’m good with it. 

L M A O!

I know what you mean, I'm sure jeroen will make it look brilliant though.

Thnx guys.

at the moment i’m cutting away a lot of plastic and resin to make the set fit the revell kit AND to show the wingroots in the proper way. The wingroots actually need to come off and the fuse should be flush. Slowly but surely the nose is starting to fit. As you can see i’ll need to scratch the gear hinges.

Santa Ana was the other contender.  Would Sam Houston been a happier choice?  Lol.
