Okay here's the shark componet. It's a plastic toy shark, I didn't feel like paying extra for the model kit. I hope it's okay Steve. I'll be making a number of modifications and adding kit parts to it.

The top view of the veltro wing tells me the DC-3 lives on even further in the future.

Might think about the old blimp/sparrowhawk system to hang it from.  Was a simple hook and bar setup referred to as a trapeze.

GH, I need to come up with a plausible arrangement where the Veltro’s hook stows completely when in flight, yet minimizes the chances of the pilot getting decapitated when recovering to the mothership.  The comic does not clearly show the hook, and I know it needs to be fairly long so the stabilizers don’t foul the launch arm upon release.

Is the wing planform from a future past?  Or a past future?  Oh my head hurts.  I need to lie down.  Been a long day.

Keep fiddling with the deployment system, I'm sure something will come to you!

Gamera, the robo-shark was from the movie “James and the Giant Peach”.  The shark had a mouth that was basically a tunnel ringed with rows of counterrotating teeth!  Too cool.  IIRC, it also belched diesel smoke.

Will continue working out the details for the “skyhook” on the Veltro.

Steve: Awesome! Thank you sir!!! 

Real G: Oh sorry, when I said I hadn't seen it I meant 'James and the Giant Peach'. That robo-shark is all kinds of cool though. Love the counterrotating teeth and diesel smoke- that's steampunk if anything is steampunk!

Modelcrazy, your space battleship looks great.

Sorry I haven't posted many updates on my build lately.  Unfortunately, in addition to everything else going on right now, I had also managed to squish one of my fingers in a fire door at work.

It's getting better now though, so I have been able to make a little progress, though some of that "progress" has actually been going back and trying to modify/change some stuff I had already done.

Anyway, here are two quick pictures of my build right now.  Once I finish up cleaning up a few things here and adding the headlights, and a couple other small items, I think that I will go ahead and start playing around with painting the upper body, before I add the chassis, wheels and such.

Steve: Oh WOW!!! That is incredible- love her!!! Heart

The red, black, and copper looks awesome, and the ship is just a really cool idea and design! 

 

Pat: Ouch, glad your finger is better now. The armoured car looks pretty dang cool!

Hi,

My build is beginning to finally start coming together.  I have most the undercarriage done too, but I'm going to leave it off till I finish up painting the top half.  I'm going to try and spray paint some form of camoflage (though I've never been that good at spray painting).  

Pat

PS.  I'm also still working on the barrel.
