Explaining the banner
« on: December 13, 2011, 12:02:05 PM »
from http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=2.0 ("rules of the forum"):
Well who ever built that plane in the banner must be a freaking genius ;)
GET IT.  :D (It was me based off a drawing of GTX's)

Well I had to drag up some low life's work to show there...

Greg
Is this model a Spitfire with 24 cylinders double-engine?
And what about the wonderful profile on the left? name? author? P-51D/F-16A mix?

The model is Ron's (aka sotoolslinger) Hawker/Grumman GT-X24 Hellstorm which is based on this original drawing I did ages ago:



Here is another photo:



The profile is known as the Chimera and is the work of Chris (aka coops213) who used the assistance of Damian (aka damian) and based upon a sketch I did that was based upon a suggestion by Jon (aka jcf).  The logo in the middle was also done by Jon and is based upon an original by Brian (aka Brian da Basher) who also suggested the forum name.  Suitably confused?

All round a great team effort! :D

Greg

I am ashamed to have seen a Spitfire in a Grumman...  ???
But this a wonderful model, thanks to add this profile view.
Uh... is G-24 the Hellcat code? I know the Wildcat was G-18 but I have not found for Hellcat.
Anyway, congratulations to sotoolslinger the modeller and GTX the designer.

The Chimera profile is wonderful too, do you confirm this is a P-51D mix with a F-16? (I know these words sound crazy, but this is what I see, what I love...) :D

I called it the GT-X24 cause of it's fictional X shaped 24 cylinder engine. Here is the photobucket so you can see the build up
