    Default April 2020 Workbench

    Greetings Skysters!

    Back to the Workbench! Just created a new paint station, our local hobby center sold out their air compressors so I suddenly needed a new one.

    What dreams, lawsuits and nightmares are made of. The Mannesmann Triplane. 10 engines, 14 guns, 2 cannons, crew of dozens, said to be capable of bombing the US and returning to Germany . . . 12 built by the elves, no April fools . . . Search for it on the site . . .

    Clipper, The Mannesmann Triplane is pretty darn awesome looking! Is that a shapeways or something or did you scratch built that beast?

    Don't really have a dedicated area, just a temporary corner of the kitchen table. Such is life at the moment, but grateful I do get in a little painting now and then.

    Next up a pair of DVIIs and the French WW2 air force!

    It will be something to see those French planes when we get together again. Just painted up a few AIM planes I received a few weeks ago. At least I have some things to work on. Hope to get one of them decaled tomorrow. This will be a normal planes but a different air force.

    There is rumored to be a single wheel in a museum in England. A few photos of the fuselage under construction have been found. All are claimed to be ruses intended to extort government funds to a steel tube/fast boat company in the later years of the war in Germany. I did find an intriguing master's dissertation of all things online that tells that story, but the proposal and description of the time tell a most thrilling concept that some people believed enough to invest a ton of money into the project. See the links above and I did a few threads on it in the distant past . . . I also built 13 of them as war prizes for cons and our poets here on the site. . . just ordered the copy of Aero featuring it in the cover . . . . always something fun to research . . . I think it was Zoe who found the first color rendering in lozenge for the project, cool to have such group efforts here!

    Started these last month & just finished them off:
    A figure conversion of a 20mm Liberation Mini's figure, switching out an M.21 for a pump shotgun, to add to the collection.

    And this one has been kicking around for the last twelve months - obviously to go with my moderns - thought it would be neat to have it suspended over the table when called up in a game... went for the 1/144 scale model as that suited the budget & the look I was after... it started life like this:

    The colours are a little iffy & there's a little more detail to add but you get the idea. Beware the Reaper.

    Finally took photos so here is the first one up. E13A (JAKE) from AIM with MISCMINI decals, well part of them. When I was looking at pictures there were a few of a JAKE in THAI markings. So having THAI decals I now have a JAKE for the Royal Thai Navy (RTN). I saw the anchor on a white or yellow disk but I just put a THAI roundel there and the anchor on the nose.

    Here are some P-47's. AIM models with MISCMINI decals. Paint scheme is from a P-47 at the Air Force museum but the squadron markings (HV) are different.

    When I was looking at markings for the P-47 I noticed that the list of who didn't have P-47's was way shorter then the people that had them. Here are 2 I did for the ROC AF. They used them in the Chinese civil war. SO here are 2 of hem.

ID:	284891 Not sure o the actual markings but here is my take on them. I saw that Red is a lucky color for the Chinese so gave them red cowlings.
