Hi guys

Just to show something a friend of mine did and is thinking about turning into a commercial product.

A nice base for small dioramas /vignettes, made in MDF:

This is the 1/48 version example.

14 x 14 cm ( aprox. 5.5 x 5.5") of pure perfection:


Detail 1:


Detail 2:


Detail 3:


Detail 4:


And with some 1/48 figures to give some sense of proportions:



He is currently figuring out the financial aspects, so I have no idea of price at this moment.

But what do you guys think?

Any feedback is more than welcome.

Thanks!

Followed by these comments:

Needs to be in 1/48.

Needs to be in 1/35! :P

No! The one true scale. 1/72 - death to the unbelievers! The heretics.

You dare to question the righteousness of the Only True Aircraft Scale (All Hail 1/48!), blasphemer? ???

You dare to impugn the sanctity of the Sacred Armour (& Helicopter) Scale (All Bow before 1/35), false idolater? ???

Pagan worshiper of the False Ancient God, repent thy evil, godless ways & find the Light of the True Gods! :icon_meditation:

Or be burned at the Styrene Stake! :icon_twisted:

What about Contingency Fighter's aka Emergency Fighter adoption of business jets for military roles eg: Interceptor / Ground Attack? Or has this already been done in other forums? (if so, I apologise, and please disregard)


M. A. D

Dime-a-dozen in Whif-verse, and not uncommon in the “real world”, and all far
more boring than the reverse: bizjets/exec aircraft based on military aircraft.

The US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) use Cessna Citation 550s equipped with AN/APG 66 radar and other sensors on intercept duties. See here: https://www.cbp.gov/sites/default/files/documents/FS_2015_C-550%20Citation.pdf

The Royal Navy used one or two (actually this is number 4) for Fleet Support in Scran Land:

There were studies of interceptor versions of the Learjet 35/36 with a radar on the top of the vertical tail and three missiles, 2x AMFAAM and 1x IRAAM, under each wing.  You could also adapt the Learjet wing to carry ground attack munitions and add suitable sensor designator elements either on the fuselage or at the front end of the tip tanks.
