"Hack and Slash" conversions group build! Almost in the Bunfight!


Recommended Posts

Excellent idea, for which I have the following, to vouch support.

A bagged Revell Tracker kit,  Unstarted, and unconfirmed whether it's complete.  Bought at FAAM show 2004, for £5.

And a Falcon Tracer conversion set.  I only bought the Tracer components of the set, so forget about Neptunes and Cougars.

Parts have been removed from backing sheet, nothing assembled.  I hope that confirms <25% eligability.

I'm reluctant to unseal the bags they're in, to check further  -  that's how parts go astray.

Also no proper decals, which could add to the fun.

BUT,  another Tracer is on the horizon, so hopefully I can scrounge some.

 

No desire to build the kit as Revell (or in this case Hasegawa) intended.

Hi Adam,

 

I'd like to take part if this goes ahead. I've a plan to build the projected Napier Dagger-engined Hawker Hurricane, proposed as a training aircraft in 1940 to ease production demands on the RR Merlin. I'd base it on the 1/72 Arma Hobby Hurricane Mk.I, but I'm not sure yet whether I'd bash two kits together (eg Amodel Hector) or scratch-build the Dagger nose. Would that qualify?

 

Cheers,

Mark

I've got a handful of resin conversions in the stash from Retrokit, including an F-5F, MiG-21 UM and Harrier T.10 so I'm sure I would have something to join in here.

Hi Adam 

 

Great idea for a GB

A couple of potential options that I have in the stash already. 

 

Frog Fairey Gannet + Airmodel vac Conversion = AEW 3

 

Airfix Heinkel He177 + Toad Resin Conversion  = He 277

 

The later one is likely going to take me blooming ages !

 

Please add me to the list.

 

Cheers Pat

Say, shouldn't you be recovering from your stay in the hospital? 

 

(At least, if that's already over?)

Thanks mate, 

 

Yes I should be, its blooming sore, trying not to pull stitches and I feel like I fell down a flight of stairs, with a lovely collection of multicoloured bruises.

Still compared with the guys I was in hospital with I can have absolutely no complaints !

Count me in.

I'll be delving into my old Airfix magazines for a Chris Ellis aircraft conversion, or maybe a car one or possibly an AFV one.

Maybe all of them, my eyes are way bigger than my belly.

 

Tony.

I've got a couple of builds needing modification for my GAF / CAC prototypes theme, including:

 

CMR CA-6 Wackett, modified with a Gypsy Major engine and cowling.

Avro Lincoln, made from Airfix Lancaster with Blackbird conversion

High Planes Winjeel, with the engine and vertical tail moved to their prototype locations

 

So, count me in for one of those!

Count me in, I have a couple of major conversions from Blackbird Models (Manchester and Neptune) in the stash. Probably the latter as the Hasegawa kit has been in the stash since about 1980, with the intention of build a MR1.

If I claimed to have Multiple Personality Disorder would that help? Mind you, I'd we'd be VERY busy making all those models. 😁 Regards, Jeff.

............I hope we can get 7 more builders.  I'm thinking of doing a figure or two

got to help our friend from across the water, so please add my name.   Besides, I have been called two-faced;  double chinned and many bellies, would that make up the numbers?

You can substitute me in at Number 10 if you like.  A bit down the batting order from Number 8 but at least on the List!

You get an entire replacement resin fuselage as well as the wing extensions extra engines, undercarriage etc.

 

Has anyone ever built one ?

 

Cheers Pat
