Wow it's like you put a Do-X in the transporter from The Fly and it came back morphed with...something.

Outstanding work, Doc! The brass tank up front is especially well done as are all those engines & props!

Colleagues, thanks as always for the kind words. It's nearly done - I need to finish the underwing parasite aircraft ( Which have taken a third form, combining the original hover tank concept, as you will see below. ) I have been dawdling, idling and otherwise preoccupied with a couple of other projects, but it's getting there. These are the new aircraft, andas soon as I can figure out what kind of trapeeze to hang them from, it'll be off the bench.

And finished. Mostly. While attaching the parasite aircraft, one of the forward out board props popped off and vanished into the maw of the great god, Sprue. I'll fabricate another one day soon, but I wanted to get this hulk off the bench for awhile... :-\






Thanks for looking! Next up, the long-delayed SYNS of Dr. Sivanna

Your work always impresses me to no end, Doc, but I really think you've outdone yourself on this epic beauty!

In a truly just world, a picture of this magnificent model would be next to the Webster's entry for dieselpunk.

Fantastic work!
