Wyrmshadow's Assorted Whifs
« on: May 17, 2012, 02:24:45 PM »
Only found the board a week ago. I haven't done much in the way of creative design in many months until recently.

So I thought I'd start off with something I kit bashed together last night.

M1A2 TUSK.. in Euro-Nato woodland cammo instead of the boring desert.



I took many different Abrams models to put it together. Trouble was, the individual authors must have used different plans to work from because nothing lined up between them.

And to think they were selling this terrible model for $68 online. http://www.meshfactory.com/shop/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=21_38_42&products_id=309

Did you stick the L55 120mm tube onto it? Or am I just seeing it longer via perspective? Anyway it looks great. If you want to Whif it up change the green for tan and the brown for green and you've got an Australian Army Abrams (or close enough).

That's somewhere down the road if I have some good overall pictures, including top view. I'm not sure about the gun, it's what came with the model, no ID on it.

redress of a Turtledove tank I did a while ago. I tried to enter it into the World of Tanks 'design a german tank' contest but didn't get anything. Frankly the whole contest was a joke. Everything after 2nd place was just ridiculous.

The Brigand from Crimson Skies but in USN colors.











And the Devastator mk2 to go along with it.

nice stuff, wyrmshadow
                      like your Crimson Skies planes :)

The "German Tank" looks good for a '46 Panther-III  -- only bad points are the toothed rear-idler / front-sprocket (or is it rear-drive ?) and the turret blocks the driver's & co-ax' hatches.  Turret-basket's a nice touch.
Those Lee / Sherman tanks are the best -- you should also post these in the Land Inspiration thread ! :P

You are correct in all that. By the time I finished it.. I didn't want to mess with it again (3+ years ago). So I thought the turret/hatch issue was minor at the time.

Please ignore the BLUE that you see in all the aircraft. They were all meant for a computer game where the blue changes to team colors.

Getting B-47 and B-52 kit-bash inspirations from last two of bombers.  Shadows are a good touch.

Shadows? I didn't have to draw in any because the models are fully 3d.
