Pete in Lincs Posted August 8, 2022 Share Posted August 8, 2022 This one finally passed the finish line this weekend! Don't ask me how. With all the other (Domestic) stuff I had to do, I'm still surprised. I got this one as a bit of a gluebomb from the bay for a decent price after wanting one for years. Disassembled, cleaned up and altered a bit, I'm quite chuffed with the result. The colour scheme and markings are not prototypical. Neither is the tail fin. But I've always felt it needs one. Slightly blurry. Sorry. It came with just one engine, so one of them is scratchbuilt. Portholes were drilled & clearfix added. The yellow is Tamiya lemon with a touch of clear orange. I like the patchy 'used' finish. I added the machine guns in the 'grille'. Don't ask me how the engines (anti gravity) are supposed to work. Hey, this is Anime! Anything goes. Today's quiz - Who forgot to unmask the wheels before taking pictures? No prizes for the correct answer. I think those 'doors' on the engines are supposed to close, but I couldn't achieve it. Ah well. Comments and questions are welcome. There is a build thread here.. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235112006-vanship-revamp/ Many thanks for looking, Pete 20 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
