Lots of stuff concerning an upcoming shoot in Cologne for a new documentary is taking its toll and besides that I have been doing some plastic stuff because I felt like it. It still is not as satisfying as paper stuff but I had some unfinished business to attempt and I wanted to do two small ones.
Besides, the work on the Saturn is a bit repetitive and tedious to show at the moment. Still four engines to go before attacking the base plate of the S1C stage. Since the engines will be all the same I am not planning to show all of the building of it.
Here's what I have now, and after the jump I will show you the two plastic projects I have finished.
Thanks for hanging in there, before this year is over I will hopefully be back at full speed.

First I have made this pretty F9F Panther in a 'what-if" scheme. In this fictitious timeline the Dutch never bought the hawker Seahawk but the F9F. The air force and navy both acquired a bunch of these and decided to form a joint demo team called "De Heeren 17" after the illustrious top brass of the VOC, the Dutch East Indies Company. Needless to say, they flew with 17 of these Panthers. The Shorts Tucano on the right is in this same timeline the most recent trainer of the Dutch air force, instead of the Pilatus PC-7. It has been painted in a scheme to commemorate the old demo team. Perhaps they even fly together as a heritage flight, who knows? More on this timeline on request. (-;
See you soon,
