A naked Dragonfly

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. This is my first contribution to this forum, so be gentle ;) I generally build sci-fi and this is one of my favourite builds of late. It's my take on the Industrial Mechanika 1/35 Dragonfly flying craft. I love this machine and the Deathhead Moth flying machine as well (although I haven't been able to buy one yet, I would like to)

It's a mixed media kit - the body being resin and the wings photo etched with clear acetate sandwiched between the wing panels. I added some left over PE bolt heads for interest only. The base is scratch built and it has working landing lights. The kit was painted in Alclad and the wood decals were from a German company I can never remember the name of. They're very thin and tear so easily, but they do look good

Anyways, that's my first contribution to this forum. I am currently working on the Zvezda Star Destroyer which I am detailing and lighting etc. I can co a WIP here if anyone is interested?

At any rate, thank you for looking at my Dragonfly :D

See you around soon

That is awesome. Really nice job, LEDs have made lighting our projects so much easier than it was in the past. A WIP for you other project would be great.  My wife loves dragonflies, who makes that kit?

Well that's different...................AND fantastic.  You sir have some real talent.  As others have stated, don't be a stranger and I look forward to more of your builds.  How about a "WIP" on whatever you're working on?  I've no doubt I could learn something from you.  cheers, tim

thank you very much guys. It is very steam punk - something I have never built before. It's good to try something new every now and then :)

I will set up a thread for my current project shortly

Nothing like making a good first impression!  I've never heard of, or seen such a thing, that's very cool.  Very well done.

You have any car subjects in mind?  I've been seeing more Steampunk themed show cars lately, should be right up your alley.
