twin-boom (Boxcar) bottle, red Re: hybrid aircraft/animals and others
« Reply #497 on: February 27, 2016, 02:32:32 AM »

I have a few small bottles ("mignonettes") in my stash, and I realized I haven't tried a twin-boom yet

so here is a Flying Boxcar (1/144) with Gentiane
(Tophe, don't be afraid, I didn't even drink it, so the bottle is still full actually  ;D )

You missed an opportunity to paint it purple!
Looks good, though. Is that the Roden boxcar kit?

Wellington and violin, red Re: hybrid aircraft/animals and others
« Reply #501 on: March 02, 2016, 04:07:30 AM »

this plastic violin was supposed to play music with a bit of electronics inside, but it was broken when I found it : maybe for the best, after all, for my ears  ;)

and I had a 1/72 Airfix wellington of the right size so I furthered my experiments in the spirit of this :



and here it is :

Beautiful!  Perhaps for their next album they should honor the Commander Cody of Republic serials (Radar Men From the Moon et al.) and make spaceships of their instruments?

2cv and Saab 21, yellow Re: hybrid aircraft/animals and others
« Reply #505 on: March 05, 2016, 06:55:00 AM »
thanks ! but before more music :

I began a series of 2cv hybrids, with different kinds of aircraft : monoplane high wing or low wing, biplane, twin-boom, twin-motor, jet

here is the first one, a 1/43 2cv with a 1/72 Saab 21 (both Heller)

VERY beautiful :-* :-*
And I just noticed the slight asymmetry of the propeller, not exactly following the centerline (probably to counter-act torque of the single engine). Congratulations engineer!
And maybe "2cv" is not famous out of France, it means "deux-chevaux-(vapeur)" (to read de-shvo), nick-named "Dodoche" (to read dodosh) ;)

2cv and biplane (Alf), blue Re: hybrid aircraft/animals and others
« Reply #508 on: March 08, 2016, 05:24:11 AM »
thanks !

and now one of the 5 diecast 1/32 (? I guess) 2cv

(I bought the lot just to make shipping costs more optimized when buyig something else : you know what I mean, that's how you get a stash full of things you don't need, and didn't actually want ... but at some point it pops up again conveniently enough after all  ;D tell me I am not the only one please  :wacko:)


hybridized with the Alf floatplane from which came the yellow catapult I showed recently

Your new flying-2cv is VERY pleasant, thanks!  :-*
Alas it is not my "favourite" one because I love so much twin-boomers that I prefer the yellow one  :-* :-* , sorry.

Sorry I cannot confirm as I do not buy lots anymore but one model rarely, and only one. But your incredible productiviity needs lots as basis, I understand and I approve you with joy.
