Just what you need to quickly get to the more remote fields that need working.  Very nice!!

All the better to get out there quickly and work those far fields.

Now that's one heck of a crop-duster!

I like this one a lot. If you'd painted it green instead of blue I bet you could get someone to believe it was the latest in the John Deer/Dassault line.

Nice one, eric!

neo - Crusader AG4, yellow Re: hybrid aircraft/animals and others

I stumbled upon this, and was stunned :






especially as I had in my spares box a fuselage of a HD500, and a few other ingredients ... so I had to do something about it ;
I had to go and dig deep into the box for the spats, from a resin Arado 95, but the rest (Twin Otthe wings, P38 tail) were easier to find.

I had this kit of the MIR station for some years, second hand and half begun, and I finally did something with,
like a gathering of space craft up there (involving wings from various donors : Twin Otter ; Albatross W4 ; P38 ; CF-100 ; Mi-2 ; Sinagot)

That has a wonderful anime look to it.  I would imagine some of those wings are used as radiators (likely the largest ones, you need a large radiating surface in space) while others are photo-electric arrays for power.

when I did it it reminded me of the cafe where all characters meet in Porco Rosso : but then, in space  ;)

That could be interesting to do if you had similarly-sized models of ships from several different science-fiction universes (Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars, Space Battleship Yamato, Honor Harrington (preferably one of the late-model Grand Alliance SD(P) units), etc.).

to go with the MIR space station, and to re-use all those solar panels in the kit, here are some solar aircraft, across different periods of aircraft history :














and this time I even used the decals !!!  :o

I think these are my favorites on this thread so far.

Love the solar panels. Alternative energy is big these days.

Well done, eric!
