What do you do the day after you get a tooth pulled?… You build a crazy build!

So on Wednesday a got a molar pulled because I cracked it. That meant spending the rest of the day in bed. Next day I still couldn’t talk, so I stayed home. Feeling kind of sick of being in bed, at around 9 a.m. took out a bagged Ju-87 Stuka Tank buster (Hobby Craft) kit I got on eBay (it was really cheap but my wife doesn’t understand why I need to have 3 or 4 of the same kind, I know but I forgot) a while back. Got the rocket pods from an Mi-24 (hoping on doing that one modernize with Hellfire missiles), a P-51 Mustang drop tank and drilled out sprue bits and cannon barrels (did that before the codeine kicked in). I know it looks crazy but it’s kind of cool and I finished it at around 7:30 p.m. It’s speed modeling! Any how, sorry about the canopy. I know it came out kid of crappy (did that after the codeine kicked in). Will finish it up with Spanish Ejercito del Aire roundels since I did the white rudder with the black cross (again, did that before the codeine). Will call it “Protector de Melilla”. Hope everyone likes it, or at least got a good laugh out of the story. In any case, enjoy! 😁

  4. Roberto, great concept and build! Not so crazy, either.

  5. Roberto, an interesting build, and “Yes”, I like it !.
    What I find most intriguing is, I think that might actually work !

  6. Gotta love creativity when the juices start flowing. Nicely done.

  7. At the end of the war in Europe, several German planes flew into Spain, who then took over the airplanes. You don’t hear too much about that, there was one four engined that was used into the 50s, until the parts ran out.

    Roberto … this one really has me wondering … What if ?

  9. Wow – hate to be on the pointy end of that thing!!

  10. Roberto – very nice! I could work on one all YEAR & not come out this well!
    I agree – the drilled out cannons came out great. I love those long barreled guns!
