Hello my friends,

 

some months ago there was a Delta Force FAV on here... when the kit came out, I wanted it. But couldn't; can't remember why. So I started something very unusual for me -I scratched a vehicle. Upon seeing the few pics of the newly-developed "Flyer" for the US SOCOM, I had to do it. Just don't check the measurements...

Those wheels were copied from a 1/24 1970 Challenger.

The winch was... I think an electronic coil from some broken VCR, something like that.

Not my best work, but lots of creativity... hope you like it.

 

Until next time,

Johnny Tip

SAS looked at the ALSV Flyer 60 (60" wide) about 5 years ago.  They wanted the Flyer 72 (72"wide) but that wouldn't fit the RAF Chinooks because of extra armour plating in the cargo hold.  Too wide.  They didn't like the 60.  Apart from being really too narrow it was apparently very noisy.

Thank you @Bertie Psmith, @Das Abteilung and @Pete Robin.

Something like the F-4 Phantom, not really "beautiful" but built for work. Especially this one, made from lots of sprue parts, blister packaging and some resin for audiologists - can't use it for customers any more, but for customizing models...
