The Falke; Redux anti-gravity craft
Posted by Tiking on Tuesday, January 16, 2018 7:58 AM

Here is the almost completed Falke I have heavily modified with kitbash and minor scratch built parts. Just a little more touch-up here and there. Hope you guys like the results. Now I can begin to concentrate on another truck diorama.

Thanks,

No. The kit was scratch built by a Japanese modeler during the early 80's, kow yokoyama. It was then turned into a kit. It sells under Ma.K products amoung many of his creations.

That's a great modification, and a cool build!

Did you share this in the Facebook groups, too?  I think I saw it in my feed earlier.

Yeah if you look closely, you can see some of the donor kits Kow used to build the Falke.  The "wing" booms are from the old Revell 1/32 P-38 kit, and the pilot's pod is a 1/24 Porsche racer.

Kow is an illustrator, and a modeler.  He created illustrations of vehicles and armored fighting suits on a future Earth, and then scratchbuilt models based on those illustrations.  The original kits were made by Nitto.  Then there was a hiatus brought on by a copyright dispute.  Later kits are from Wave and Hasegawa, along with figures from Brickworks, and a number of smaller manufacturers, practically garage kit makers.

Anyone interested in a deeper look at Maschinen Krieger might like to take a look in Bryan Krueger's Maschinen Krueger forum, maschinenkrueger.com, or at any of the Facebook groups, such as the Kow Yokoyama group, or MaK-North America, to name a few.

Spectacular! Dig the mods, very unique. I've never seen a Falke conversion like this.
