Here's a scratchbuild that I started in early September. Thanks to being furloughed again, it is now finished & ready for the rivet counters. The idea was for a lightweight, faster, more nimble ground attack Falke. The basic bits were a 1/24th Chevy Berretta and the booms from a 1/32nd P-38 Lightning. The spares boxes contributed parts, as did @badger and WNW lozenge decals came from @gcn. Here's a link to the build thread. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235079743-a-falke-is-born/ I took advantage of the sunshine today! Helmut showed u
You either know about the Kreiger universe or you don't. I do and I like the mechanical side of it. I also enjoy scratchbuilding kreiger stuff, even though I have a stash of the Hasegawa kits. My favourite is the Falke and it's variants. And this is yet another of my builds along those lines in 1/20th scale. Basis of the build is parts from a Revell 1/32nd P-38 bought as an old build some time ago from another BM member. The central unit is a part started Porsche 911 Speedster bought from Kits for Cash. The Anti Grav units are half ping pong balls (12 for a

In the last shots you can see the xmas baubles used for the anti-grav units, the 'intakes' for these are halves of missiles. All other bits are random spares. Scale will be about 1/35th. Anyway, comments etc are welcome. Main view, I moved the main anti-gravs to the rear t
This one has been on and off the bench over the last year or so and I finally got time and the energy to finish it. Its the excellent Hasegawa MaK Falke Anti Gravity Fighter and I just love the mix of what looks like a 1950's hotrod and the big cannon up front. It also gave me a chance to try out the AK Interactive Chipping fluid, which takes some getting used to but I like very much. I love MaK as you can mess it up and go to town on weathering. Paint is a mix of Vallejo, Hasegawa and some AK Interactive and Mig Weathering powders, oils and fluids. The base is a bit of wood I found in th
