So when were you going to put up the official thread?

 

Well, I thought I'd wait a little longer but considering how much traffic we've still got going on here and I saw a Cadberry chocolate Easter egg commercial so I guess I might as well go ahead and post it.

Thanks for the kick in the Censored Steve! I can always count on you! Stick out tongue

Building a kit from your stash is like cutting a head off a Hydra, two more take it's place.

P-40 or Typhoon nose, P-51B tail, F4U wings (clipped), TBF canopy.  All available in 1/72.  That would be a real kit bash.

Didn't know about the Spits being available, was just kidding since it's Bish's fav.Big SmileWink

Wow, that Stuka is cute. And that's one plane I didn't think I'd ever call 'cute' till today....

I built the Deal's Wheels Spitsfire years ago. Lemme see if I can get a link to post:

Some company needs to come out with a Stuka version just for Bish, or a short fat Spit with squared off wings.  Big SmileBow Down

 

 

 

Would not surprise if Meng have a Stuka lined up at some point. I keep looking.

But wouldn't that just be a normal Spitfire Whistling

 

Tiger Models has this:

Found this one also, though not sure if it's a real kit or just art:

And of course you might be able to find dear old Flt.Lft Rif Raf:

Then there's this...which, so far AFIK is only 'concept' art:

It strikes me you might be able to lash up a Stuka by artful crossing of, say, an 'egg' Warhawk's nose and an Avenger's canopy...but you'd have to scratch-build the wheel spats.

Could always paint it like a ty-dyed easter egg..Big Smile  Use the clear red, blue, green, orange on the plexi....

 

 

 

I thought of doing one up as T.C.'s chopper from Magnum P.I.

 

Higgins did refer to it as 'the easter egg' in one episode...

 

Both are good ideas.  I do like the brown, orange, and yellow scheme.  Gamera, I'll work under the assumption that you have dibs.

Food for thought.

Just delivered today. 

Not really an egg beater, but more of an egg chopper.  Need to figure out what paint to use then I'll be ready.

I forgot. i have this fire truck too and the big Revel 1/25 one.. May also do a Soviet MAZ-537 8x8 as civilian using the high vis greenish yellow for civilian categories at contests. have a Ural 6x6 that will be orange.

I've waited for years for some manufacturer to do a 'real scale' version of a fire-fighting Oshkosh...but this is the closest to appear. Fortuitously, this GB makes the perfect venue for it!

The Drifter

Gamera,

If you deceide to kick off this idea into a GB I'm in!! This is the kit I have to bring to the table.

 

 

 

this is the first one i built and MENG learned from it. future tow cables are separate parts and not molded onto the hull like this one. not even annoying but takes a steady hand to paint them. i superglued the track sag using foam earplugs as wedges. i have another i will do as i rattle can primed this in the garage at 95F and the paint dried before hitting the model. nice cast effect for a 1/35 but a bit much for this so an afternoon of thinner and Q-tips smoothed thiNgs out.

TO REPEAT FOR EVERYONE. THE FIT IS TIGHT so built as much as you can before painting, mask off all axles and hull suspension holes, etc or you will be sanding and scraping to make the fit. that was lots of fun with the side skirts on the PZ-IIIN and i should have known better.

I told you there was going to be high intrest. Good idea Gam.

How about these? I don't have them, but would like to.

I'd have to figure out how to make toon water LOL

 

 

i have LEXINGTON and the Uboat. you could get some clear plastic sprue and mount it just above a seabed base.

 

I have the Lex and will be getting the u-boat. You gave me an idea of the sub stocking the carrier, wrong theaters but might as well distort the facts as well as the subjects. 

Thanks for the info on the tigger. I have that one as well.

I am planning on the u-boat for this GB. Not thought about how to display it. The usual nice wooden base seems a bit to sensible.

I wounder if the kit comes with the fish.

 

 

 

Hey Bish,

 

I beleive they come with 2 gold fish

O, nice, in that case i will have to get a fish tank.
