Oh Ikar01 did a simular sort of thing with some naval ship models. They're over on the SF/Fantasy forum:

Hi,

I'm still planing on building my 3D printed Attack plane, but I'm kind of stuck figuring out part of it, so I have set it aside for now.  In the mean time I stumbled across a model kit of an old Soviet Armored Car that kind of has a Steam Punk look to it.  So I might try building the car 1st and then try to get back to my plane.

I've got a couple ideas for some small tweaks to the armored car, to try and make it look a little bit more "punk-ish" but I'm not fully sure what all I will do to it yet.  It should arrive by Friday and I hope to start it this weekend.

I received the engine nozzels today and wow! Surprise These things are sweet!

here's my idea. Use two diffrent engine nozzels, one for each engine, kinda main and secondary.

These are so cool that I may have to get the Revell Arizona and do another  Stick out tongue

Thanks Chad and Gam, that's wat I was thinking, more go Big Smile. As far as Ikar, if I keep going like this, he may need to join my side 

I was thinking of combining these two for a later build.

It's missing parts, and.......

Hey look what showed up yesterday!

This is the Goliath, a giant airship from the Hayao Miyazaki anime "Laputa: Castle in the Sky".  I dimly recall watching the movie back in the late 1980s on a pirated VHS tape rented from a hole in the wall.  I wasn't really taken by the story, and completely forgot that this ship appeared in it.  Or did it?  I can't remember.  Indifferent

Anyway, it's neat that stuff from older properties continue to see light in the form of modern injected kits.  My only gripe is that the kit is only 8" long, and that the included 1/20 scale figure of a rather sinister looking bureaucrat has more "presence" than the subject kit!

Scale of the Goliath is not stated, so it's off to the Internet to search for data.

In the mean time, I'd like to submit this into the GB please.

You got it G, looks like we both received something cool yesterday.

GH, yeah, that's what I was thinking of. The 37 on tracks with armord sides, guns, the whole works. I wasn't raelly intrested in the tank but got it for a song when a toy store was getting rid of their plastic. Now I have a use for it Devil

I was serious about the Arizona as well.

So off the HL I went last night, fullty intending on grabbing the Arizona, then my eye caught this,

A complete crap of a kit by itself but as a space carrier.........Confused

Doesn't every fleet need a carrier? Maybe an interior flight deck as well?

Steve,

Oops, I didn't read instructions again!  The Goliath will be OOTB and thus does not qualify for the GB, so it's the Veltro all the way.

Tell you what, I’ll consider building the Andrea Doria, the airship that launched the Veltro instead.  Trying to keep up the honor and intent!

Sounds good G. Whatever you decide, I'm confidant it will stay within the intent of the GB.

Hi,

I started on my armoured car last week.  So far all I've done is build up the base body, but now I'm looking into some mods/changes to make.  After search the internet for awhile, it looks like during the 30s and 40s there was actually some serious looks into using electro magnetism as some form of (what the press described as) a "death ray". 

So I think I may try and mod the gun on my model with some fins and other bits to make it look a bit more like a "death ray".  Other than that I think I may try and doctor up the turret a little, just to make it look different, and extend the body of the vehicle a little, to provide a "trunk" area where a small generator, with its air inlet, exhausts, and muffler might be fitted.

Hope to get more done this weekend.

Thanks Gam, I sanded on it some tonight, added some CA and filler to build it up some more and. I have the shape now, it's just down to smoothing it out.

The space battleship Missouri is coming along well.

 

I'm going through a massive hobby room and shop rearrangement, but hope to be able to get started on something soon. My wife has called in her marker on the spare room that was supposed to be her sewing room / artists studio but had sort of become my hobby storage. Second floor to the basement, and room had to be made in the basement so all fun is on temporary hold. She didn't complain when I bought an old fire engine so when she asked for her room, yes maam!  Wink

Lots of mass to move what Mach, Warp, FTL, less than 12 parsecs? It needs big go go thingies.
