I had an absolute blast making the dirty and I even learned a few things...…... thank you to everyone for the encouragement 

 

Comments and criticisms welcome as always

Cheers

Wow! That sure gives new meaning to the term "kit bashing"!! 

It's a bit like looking at the Millennium Falcon or a Gerry Anderson model, trying to pick out which different kit pieces are used.

Great job producing something VERY different...and authentic to the original picture too. Love it!!

Cheers

That is incredibly awesome! Any idea how much all those sacrificed kits were all together? This must have cost an arm and a leg at least!

Is it me or is the nose a little off😜 ....

 

At first when i looked at the titel i thought that you had done a P-8 Poseidon with everything dangling and open..never expected to see this😀

great job in doing something different👍👍

 

cheers, Jan

Fantastic! Great representation of the picture and it must have been an absolute bear to get together! Kudos!

Wow, looks fantastic.  Nicely interpreted version of the original artists vision and no doubt you've added further imagination of your own for the bits not shown or clear in the picture.  And the debris and "laundry" fluttering in the breeze works well too.

The pilot would have to be a real hero, I expect there might be a fair degree of asymmetric handling to deal with! 😉

Thanks for thinking out of (quite a number of) the box(es)!

Cheers 

Will

Great to see this finished. Loved the WIP. This should take pride of place in the display cabinet.

Thank you mate..all the kits were sourced from kingkit.com,cheap as chips I think the entire thing cost around £75-£80 well worth it for the enjoyment I got out of making it👍

Thanks mate I'll be honest it wasn't as bad a build as I thought it might be(that's probably down more to luck than judgement 🤔)

Brilliant.  Even the Very Serious Modellers here at Chateau Duvalier were moved to smirking.  I had a blast following your build.

Thank you mate I'm glad it had you smiling that was the whole aim of giving it a go👍
