fish & 1/24 Harrier, blue & red Re: hybrid aircraft/animals and others
« Reply #842 on: February 19, 2017, 05:25:50 AM »

continuing with fish, that one is quite big, so it is a bit monstruous (not only by size  ;) ) :
the Harrier is Airfix's 1/24 (I got it for real cheap : 10 euros),
and the fish is a big rubbery thing, but sizes did fit well :

one way, in red :





and the other way, in blue :

(wheels were a bit hard to get straight, but hey, it does stand )

The red one looks a little steampunk submarine with all those rivets!
Awesome as always!

thanks a lot!
I expected the Harrier to cause reactions as big as it is  ;)

Nice work. The blue one looked like a Skyhawk to me at first glance.

fish & 1/48 P-61 twin boom, yellow Re: hybrid aircraft/animals and others
« Reply #849 on: February 25, 2017, 02:21:30 AM »

another fishy experiment : using the booms of the previously shown 1/48 P-61, and a resin fish replica
(Tophe, you were concerned about the booms : here they are, not lost, on the contrary ! )







this time I had to adopt a new kind of modelling tool :

The preceding Yellow and Blue numbers demonstrate that new species of "flying fish" are continually being found.  Beautiful work on them and the red one before them.

I love how the yellow fish's tail has the same sweep angle as the P-61 fins! Great stuff  :)
