I decided I wanted to do a little something sci fi, while still doing the Do335. So, I pulled out one of the SBY Dreadnought kits from Bandai. A lovely kit too. If I was doing this OOB, I think I would be in paint already. But as I'm not... Taking some inspiration from Do-Do, I decided to give her a little stretch in the hull. As well as that, I'll be building up the lower belly scoop, to make it larger and more angular like the forward scoop under the bow. I also have the exhaust nozzle from a 1/48 SR-71 that may serve as a new engine for the ship. It's only slightly larger in diameter than the hull. First up, the lovely box art! The pile of sprues. Firs to go are the little knobs here that protrude from under the upper bulges. I found a nice bit of rod to replace them with. Took a little detour and cut the hull sides. Then it was back to cutting interior plastic for clearance for the metal rods. Just in case. And how she looks right now, with a planned length of the stretch. Wish me luck. Model on!
