    Thanks Bob. I painted up two I-15bis back in 2013 to go up against my Legion Kondor Bf 109Es.

    My massed Republican fighters over Guernica, four I-15 Chatos, two I-15bis Super Chatos, two I-16 Ratas and a lone Boeing P-26.

    I managed to finish painting the Great Ape from Crooked Dice this weekend - it's a beautiful miniature with loads of detail and character, even down to Kong's broken left lower canine tooth!

    Now I've begun working on a 3-D building top to perch him on, one that will let him 'move' around during the game to vary where he's standing and attacking/defending from against those pesky flying things...more on that as it coalesces. I have the paper template for it but will be cutting it out of plastic card stock this week.

    I look forward to running a King Kong scenario at our next Wright Flight gaming day in April.

    All the best,
    Matt

    Did he lose it in Charing Cross Station?

    [waits to see who gets the reference :) ]

    That really is a "great!" ape!

    Very well done, Matt!

    Making progress on the building top from which the Great Ape will swat planes 'outta tha sky'...

    I had some plastic stock sitting around, waiting to be useful, so I cobbled together a design and started cutting and gluing. Here is an 'upper' view of the building top - still need to add to the spire and put a few more details on before priming and painting.

    Here is more of a side-on view to show the angle of the roof sections - I figure these will make it look like the beast is climbing around, given the pose the figure is originally in. Each panel will have a pair of holes drilled in it to allow Kong to be moved and 'inserted' securely as his position changes throughout the game.

    Here is Kong's 'home base' for resting in the display cabinet when he's not carousing around the building top during a game - I angled it to approximate the building's top to show him 'in action'...it, too, has two holes into which the figure fits securely.

    I went with a 5-sided building top so that I can use a D6 (I know, Tim, NO DICE!!) to determine where he moves each phase. I plan to use two different colored dice - one will determine whether he goes clockwise or counter-clockwise, and the other to determine how many 'spaces' (roof panels) he moves. If Kong rolls a 5 or 6, he stays put; any other number takes him that many panels in the appropriate direction.

    Thanks for looking!
    All the best,
    Matt
