The Duke Finishes Two Aircraft and a Car

Postby Duke Maddog » Tue Jun 09, 2020 7:10 pm

Amazingly enough, I was only able to finish three models during this whole stay-at-home order during the past few months. I am finally able to get these posted. One is armor and will be posted there, but since it also came in the same box as one of these aircraft, I'm showing it here with that aircraft.


I'll start with my Hasegawa Israeli F-16I Sufa in 1/72 scale:

Next is the ancient Italeri German Go-244 Gotha transport aircraft in 1/72 scale:

You can see the rear opens and closes. This is why: it comes with this little Kubelwagen kit as a load:

More detailed shots of the Kubel are here:

This little model was included in the Gotha kit from Italeri, but I'm calling it a completed model since it is a little model. I finished this up and made it almost unweathered since it was being transported to some staff officer in the Gotha:

There it is. It is tiny and probably all of twelve parts but a model nonetheless. I had fun building that one, it brought back great memories.


Thanks for looking in here, comments are welcome.

Very nice! That wide body f16 looks awesome. Cool that the Gotha opens up and comes with a load. Maybe a little Romel and staff driver accepting delivery would be cool :). Lots of work there!
Thanks,
John

Three more eh? :hmm: I hate to ask what this makes your total count now...
Nice work Mark! I do miss seeing your stuff at club meetings.

Great looking builds! Really like the Gotha. For some reason I can't get your manufacturing page to open on my phone. It just loads and loads then a error message.

Thanks for the awesome replies guys! I truly appreciate them!

Thanks Kevin! I think I have a small Rommel figure somewhere. It'll be tough doing that kind of dio though given how little room I have. I do like that idea though.

Thanks Carlos! The count is slowly growing. Here's a breakdown for you: Aircraft: 453...Armor: 788... and the Grand Total is: 1553 all completed. I miss seeing you and your work as well. Hopefully you'll be able to fly back over for Orangecon which is still on so far.

Thanks Johnny! I do like to mix it up a bit with different genres; doing so keeps everything fresh when I get back to them.

Thanks Floki! I apologize for the error when trying to load my Manufacturing thread. It is probably because there are between 15 and 20+ pics on each post on the thread, making it tough for phones to load.

Thanks Medic!
