Lublin RXIIIB Hydro Terror 1/48 - Mirage+ICM
« on: August 05, 2020, 03:59:49 AM »
Hello!

Now it's time to make a model that was in my head for a long time.
To make long story short...it still will be Lublin with floats but low-wing, RR Merlin and foul-blade prop :)
Because Lublin RXIII has a additional symbol hydro/ter(which probably means that it can be on floats-hydro, or on wheels - terrain, but I'm not sure),  I thought that it can be a basis for new name for experimentaly modernised Lublin with RR Merlin :) That's how Lublin Hydro Terror was born :)
I'll use Mirage Hobby 1/48 Lublin R.XIII ter/hydro for main parts and ICM 1/48 Spitfire Mk.VIII. These are very cheap kits. Mirage Lublin is veeeryy simple set, old one too. Spit is quite detailed but I'll need only Engine and it's cowling and some cockpit details.

How it looks with Merlin? Just like on photo below :)

Twin floats qualify as honorary spats ... or maybe galoshes?

I wonder, if there is too much completed to be transfered to BdB Memorial GB? There will be a small dio and pilot figure so if it's possible then I'll be pleased :)

Since Lublin was poorly armed in original form, mine got this. Two MG's from scrap box, a bit of styrene and a gun station as it should be :)

Excellent notion!

If any other Schneider Cup racer looks likely to overtake the Lublin - gun 'er down  ;D

Looking fast even with floats & struts.  Bunch of engine & prop for small floatplane.   Colors work well.  :smiley:  :-*
