See bit of M8 armored car DNA in there.  Is way creative.  :-*

I started off with the IDF Nagmachon APC kit from Hobbyboss, that I received as a reward for the ‘Random Award’ in November 2017. I then converted the kit into a hover unit using the kits original parts only, making up about 98% of the bulk of the vehicle. The only scratch build parts and foreign items used in this built, was the rear panel, with the rounded exhausts mounted on; a few white styrene here and there, and empty astma canisters used for the four engines. The weaponry were modified and extra parts added to give them a distinctive look from my box of ‘Misc’ model parts from other kits I have collected over the years. The name ‘Walrus’ was given due to the shape and size of the overall look of the vehicle.

Beautiful!!  Is there a matching "Carpenter" vehicle?  Reference is to Lewis Carroll's poem.

Hi guys

Thanks for the feedback!

So the shipping costs are the main obstacle. We will have to think "small & light", then.

In my case, I can send a 250gr (slightly less than half a pound) package to basically anywhere in the world for 4.1 Euros (4.6 USD app.), using standard air mail.
I can live with that, but what do you think would be a feasible value to pay?

Let me build a small business plan with 2 different scenarios, just to evaluate the economical viability  of the project.


One year time frame for this seems about right.


Cheers

Antonio

Corks held with the one of three carpet tapes that work.
Be using rivet like method in places.
As build goes on found these unlikely things useful.  See price..... this box been around long time.

Try top one w/o missiles. Has fine lines as is.
Want to see how semi flying wing turns out.  Looks maybe 1/200.
Last two doing well.  Keep going.

Update time:

First of all, Thanks to those who gave input on my mig-41 for the GB. Unfortunately that project is on indefinite hold, as I had a lot of trouble trying to make it look right.

Other stuff:

Should I put some missiles on it or leave it bare?
