RQ-7B Shadow UAV (AttackSquardon 1/72)

January 29, 2017 in Aviation

UAVs (or drones) is very popular nowadays (millions was sold during past few years), so it’s time for them to enter a scale modeling world. Actually, drones have some advantages, compared to typical aircraft subjects – no interior and no clear parts! No masking build! But I’m just kidding.

It’s a resin kit by AttackSquadron (Poland) in 1/72 scale. Maybe this is the smallest aircraft model I’ve ever built – wingspan is just above 60mm (something about 2.3″). Resin and photo-etched parts are excellent quality, but it’s so small, and it was a real challenge for me to call it done.

Painted with Vallejo acrylics, washes are also from this manufacturer.

Thank you for watching!

PS. AttackSquadron also has this drone in 1/48 scale too.

  1. Nice little build, Dmitry…until I saw that last photo (which clearly shows the inverted V tail), the illusion was that the tail was somehow askew – and I couldn’t decipher just what I was seeing. 🙂

  2. I thought that was just a really big zloty at first! Really impressive skills on something that small!

  3. Holy cow that thing is TINY !!!!! Very cool !!!!!! How do you decal something so small……… Amazing.

  4. I’ve seen a few drones in other scales, but as you say this absolutely has to be the smallest!

  5. Unbelievable you did such a nice job on such a tiny subject. Nice work.

  6. Thank you all for your comments!
