A scene from Top Gun in 1/144th


Recommended Posts

This is my latest completion. It was done for the Tomcat STGB II and I thought I would to try and inject a bit of humour into this build, anyway I had fun doing it. The hardest bit was getting Maverick 'giving the bird', something that didn't work out too well but, after some major amputation, he is doing it. Enjoy.

From which material did you made the attachments?

Hi Thomas, I used some 3mm acrylic rod and after heating with a hairdryer it was gently bent into shape. Those for the Tomcat were bent around a coffee tin and the F-5 was simply done by eye until they looked similar. HTH

OMG this brings back so many memories. Makes me feel like shouting "I feel the need, the need for speed!"

Superb idea and builds, especially in such a small scale. Just one question, is your f-14 pilot giving the Mig pilot the "bird"? C'mon, talk to me Goose....

Hi Nimrod

Fantastic, is it me or can you hear the soundtrack while looking at the pictures ?

Cheers Pat

Thanks Pat. Yes I think you can hear the soundtrack, I have Danger Zone going through my head now.

That is really cool. It also reminds me of the similar scene from hotshots. I love the clear rod, Were did you get it from :)

Thanks Rob, glad you like it mate. The acrylic rod I bought off Amazon from a company called NestPlastics but I have also found similar stuff on ebay.
