Dieselpunk early and late
« on: May 23, 2018, 07:38:19 AM »
Two modest projects off the bench in the last couple of weeks. The first is an Hs 123Ms ( MotorStrahl ). The old Airfix kit tarted up with a ridiculous jet engine, and a pair of 37mm bordkanone from the Frog Ju 87 G. Apart from
the obvious mods to the nose, I raised the tail planes up out of the line of the exhaust, and finished it as the
product of a Germany that never fought a first World War...



That's the early period Dieselpunk, circa 1936, now  for the late period, a Fujimi JagdPanther in 1/76th, with a
little bit of lift...

Both look really good, the Hs 123Ms looks dangerous, but I have to favor the JagdPanther. Very nice builds.   :D

Well, of course the He-123 is my favorite (love those spats!  :-* :-* :-* ) Doc but that's some great paintwork on the tank!

Great stuff!
