So good.  With retirement of space shuttles, you have repurposed the transporter as a mobile coastal defence gun battery.
DC-3 conversion is a favorite for me. 
Thanks for posting.

Whoa, awesome! I think it's hilarious!
Hmmm, I wonder whether the sci-fi modelling faction also has their share of JMNs that gets miffed about "heretic" stuff like this.  :P

If it was a model in stores I would finish the transporter as a mobile coastal defence gun battery.
But don't know if it should be Army and Olive Drab or Navy and Battleship Gray.  If navy, could have shined brass pieces here-n-there.

    Yep, they sure do !!!   To some of them, using decals from another Ma.K kit or a mod so mild that us here don't even consider it worth mentioning will cause great upset  :icon_surprised:

 :D Thought as much. Seems there's Joyless types everywhere. Although it's kinda twice as odd in the Ma.K. universe, where a lot of stuff was scrounged from other kits in the first place.

I've told my cat but he just looked at me with his normal derision ... ??? eh, what ?

What to do with a Beluga kit with yellowed decals when you don't like airliners ...
      turn it into a sub !      (kit in the "to build someday" pile)

Love it! You turn air freighters into subs and I turn subs into airships.

I hope you're not too disturbed by being on a wavelength with someone like me...

Anti-personnel does double duty as mine field clearing machine.
FU-280 variants are great.
Favorites:  Ming-5c & d    be available in resin or plastic soon?
I still buy into space shuttle transporter as mobile coastal defense gun battery.  Know if there is a kit of the transporter?

finsrin,
          there was a 1/400th transporter as part of a resin launch-tower kit.  But I think it would be esier to start with four 1/72nd Churchill tanks or maybe if you could find something suitable in a toy shop -- I had a look myself & it seems too expensive + lots of scratch-building with plastruct girders.

The Ming-5s can be altered from a Mig-15 which is what I used for the line-drawing.  A 1/72nd model based on a F-86 Sabre or FJ-1 Fury kit gave me the idea for the wing shapes - just need to do new wings & fin.
