Special Wingdings GB - April 2012 ~ Sept 2013
Posted by Ninetalis on Friday, February 17, 2012 11:08 AM

Welcome tto the official 'Special Wingdings GB'

This Group Build is all about special wings, from swept forward wings to lifting bodies,
you'll find them all here.

The rules are quite simple

   -  Any plane with something special about it's wings.
   -  All era's are allowed, production and prototype, even luft 46 and 'drawed' stuff.
   -  If you still want to join, send me a PM.
   -  Half started projects are allowed, as long that there's still some work to do about it.
   -  GB crossovers are allowed (but with the same rules as above)
   -  (Added Rule) WIP must be posted!

   -  If I forgot something, be sure to let me know in a PM.

These are the mega-awesome badges!

Here are the bigger versions

Bugatti 100
Flat Version 
Normal Version

Panavia Tornado

Normal Version

You can put the badges in your sig if you're in, but when you don't finish, then you've got to remove 'em.
Below you can find the entries and the finished builds.

Changed m' mind, Ninetalis...

Put me in for a 1/72 scale "Burt"-17A...

This'll be a "Wings in Unorthadox Places" build, and a "What if Burt Rutan had designed the B-17?" gag...

(For those of you that don't know him, his designs are almost ALL canard wing or at least unusual..

http://airplanes-aircraft.factoidz.com/the-aircraft-designs-of-burt-rutan/  )

While it's not "my" scale, nor do I usually build without a diorama, this one's fun enough to build, and I also found an old 1/72 Revell "Memphis Belle" B-17F kit in my stash that i'd forgotten I still had, from about 1977... It was inside another kit-box, along with a bunch of other "parts-kits" that I have...

The interesting part will be the main gear, lol..  Definitely NOT a tail-dragger, lol...

I'm still looking for my Tomcat. The LHS's have the old Revell/Monogram 1:48 and the Italeri. If you were going to chose, which one would you buy?

you want me to put you up for that one to? Doesn't matter if you don't know if you're going to fit them both within' the time scale, as long as you complete 1.

I forgot to ask - would an X-Wing Fighter from Star Wars qualify. I saw one at the LHS and the question came to mind. (I'm still in with the Tomcat BTW)

I got this off E-bay today - $25.49 USD including shipping. About $10.00 less than any of the LHSs were advertising (if they even had it in.)

Well, I would like to keep somewhat some line, so no sf-stuff if thats okay?
But your tomcat is good enough tough!

Krakan
Great, what kit are you using?

BSYamato
Okay, good, I'll just put it up as a possible option

Hans from Hammer

I wasn't planning on any SF stuff. I'm slow enough that one build is enough for me. It was just a random question that popped into my noggin. Propeller

I picked up three interesting 1/72 kits recently and I was wondering if one of them might be suitable .

The first two are Anigrand's DOAK VZ-4DA VTOL and Bell's X-22A VTOL "Tilt Rotors"

The third option and my favouite of all three kits isAnigrands XC-142A  "Tilt Rotor"

I recently bought a nice 12"x9'' photo off ebay of the XC-124A , so I would like to start with that one if that's okay ?

This is what im looking at building.

Its very similar to a henschel p-75.

Some of the lines will be different. And ill have to sort out the hook. (it was specially designed to be launched from and captured by rigid airships)

Thats a nice looking plane Scorpio. And an unusual idea. Did it ever get off the drawing board.

I dont beleive so. The P-75 was a luft 46 design. The Bloodhawk was from a game lol. Performs admirably in the game. Has a high stall speed though.

I see. I just had a look at the P-75 on the Luft 46 site. They are almost identical.

Yup. Almost identical. Different nose profile though. Couple of other differences. But i doubt anyone will notice too much.

Well, I think it has relativly small wings so yeah, why not?
they aren't really that standard in my eyes, I'll add ya

Helo H-34
Sure, I just wanted to say that I like the XC-124A more than the other one,
But then I saw you were going to start with that one, so yeah, okay, I'll add you to the roster.

Scorpiomickey
Okay, That's good for me, it actually looks like a shinden with a tail on it's belly instead of the wings and with a duo-prop.
What scale is that?

Btw, I'm still silintly hoping for someone to enter with a F-111 Aardvark or a MIG-23...
Nobody willing to build that one? I haven't acquired one of those two, otherwise I would add em here myself.

Regards Ninetalis.

I built a MiG 23 last year, but i do have 2 F-111's and a MiG 27 in the stash. So if i don't feel upto the triebflugel, or if i have time after that, i add one of those.

At this stage call it 1:72nd. That may change depending on which cockpit i decide to use. Im carving up a mix of 48 and 72nd scale aircraft. hopefully this works.
