Crashed bird 23

Scratch build sci-fi vignette


Scratch-build project

Got a weak spot for sci-fi drones, strange hoovering pods and other stand alone flying stuff.
Made this one from scratch using a 1/35 scale single man personal shelter from WW2.
Details are from different kits from the spare box. The engine is a 1/32 scale resin Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp.
Metal "wings" are from aluminium blinders.

From scratch to crash

For this one I just did the regular procedure; pre-shading, shading, varnishing.
Put on some dry & wet decals afterwards.
Weathering was done using Liquitex ink and pencils.
