Polygons Aerodrome
« on: December 05, 2014, 08:23:19 PM »
Here are some of my aviation, most of these are just aircraft that I've rearranged in ways I thought were interesting, no particular reasoning behind them.

Skywarrior VIP:


Skywarrior as a rotodyne:



C-1 Trader as a VTOL COD:



Two Phantoms and some other parts:



Two Skywarriors merged as a maritime patrol craft:



Rearranged skywarior as an awacs:



Kamov tilt-rotor:



Cargo seaplane - inspired by the convair tradewind:




Some sort of seaplane from the remnants (had to recast a part that I ruined in my first attempt at the cargo seaplane)


Modified phantoms:



Prowler VTOL - originally since I used the prowlers wings on the phantoms, I was just going to do a simple wing swap, but then I realized that if I flipped the wings it sort of looks like the dropship from starcraft 2:

Flight mode:


VTOL mode:


Dropship for reference:

Nice stuff, Poly! I especially like the one with the lengthened wings and 4 jets!

Well done!

1/700 or 1/350?


Both actually, the seaplanes, trader and kamov are 700 and the rest are 350.

Here my latest quick build, a 1/350 backwards wing B-25.
I bought a pack of ten a few years ago and through various moves and cleanups I only have this one left. I tried a rudimentary paint job with one of those silver markers, but it didn't turn out so well.

There are all fantastic! I have several boxes of Trumpeter 1/350 planes and only vague wiffing ideas. The A-3 Skywarrior variants are ll great and that B-25 reminds me of this book cover:

Reminds me of the 'Rutanised' B-17G you can see on the web. Nice job :)

That book cover is where I got the idea to put the vertical stabilizers on the ends of the wings and the pusher props from Sky Crawlers.

Anyway here are my latest builds.

2 1/700 f-15 concepts.
one is a combination of the silent eagle - conformal weapon bays (although you cant really see them) and canted tail fins - and the f-15 active - canards and thrust vectoring (the real active has 3d thrust vectoring, but I like the look of f-22 style 2d thrust vectoring.
And the other one is based on a tailless f-15.



1/700 f-4 with tomcat wings - added overwing ferry tanks because I think they look nice:


1/700 Tilt-rotor starlifter:


1/350 s-3 viking seaplane:

Now that I look at the picture, those engines are crooked, I'll fix that later.
