Polish whiffs (previously PZL-230 Skorpion 1:48)
« on: April 29, 2014, 03:02:02 AM »
Hello!

Few years ago I had build one of the few versions of PZL-230 and I think time has come for another :) I mean this one:

(I borrowed photo above from topic about Skorpion-I hope it's allowed)

I'm going to bash Mastercraft F-16, Monogram A-10 and Italeri F-22. And of course a lot of putty and styrene sheets:)
I had a plan to use whole front section of F-22 as a Skorpion fuselage but F-22 proved to be too big so I got back to F-16 and began a surgery. Despite of low supply of styrene, I managed to make basic shapes of wings and canards. As a tailplanes, I' ll use horizontal stabilizers from F-22. Photo below:


I've cut away more plastic than I thought I will.
Suddenly, when my Skorpion was finally taking shape. I just wondered if wings aren't too small. I hit upon an idea- why not try to fit and reshape F-16 wings. On the photos Skorpion with first version wings and another shot with F-16 wings. Which version is better? Now I'm trying to fit engines....Ehh

Watching this one very closely!  You should make a master from it and sell some resin copies…hint, hint!

:D I heard that mock-up of Skorpion was offered on auction (pice was very low as for 1:1 model). I have a plan to visit Military Technical Academy in Warsaw and ask if they're still want to sell it :)

Wow that's hot! From the very cool mods (which blend in seamlessly) to that amazing camo this is some mind-boggling modeling!

Hello!

I've decided to go with reshaped F-16 wings. I've made original , styrene wings  too small so now I have more work...Anyway, engines are temporarily fitted so I could adjust elevation and shape of tailplanes.

Thanks for all kind words , guys:)

I've managed to make a caisson (almost) like on original model. Amount of filler is visible:)



PS:

I would like to rename this topic cause I'd like to start a long-term project similar to well-known and loved "Taiidan" topic :)
So now "PZL-230 Skorpion 1:48 - final version WIP" becames simply "Polish whiffs". Next models in project: A-10, F-35B , F-35C when it'll be available and C-27 as a gunship :) And many more , I hope :)

Thanks for the compliment  :)

That sounds like a great idea, and that is a lineup I can't wait to see completed  :)

Adding those nice, big engines on the back was truly inspired! Love the look of 'em!
