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

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. 🙂
😀 Only after your comment I've realized HOW I've made ALL of the photos. Believe me, it was not conceived.
I thought that was just a really big zloty at first! Really impressive skills on something that small!
Holy cow that thing is TINY ! Very cool ! How do you decal something so small... Amazing.
I've seen a few drones in other scales, but as you say this absolutely has to be the smallest!
Unbelievable you did such a nice job on such a tiny subject. Nice work.
Great job !
Thank you all for your comments!
Yup - tiny! Looks nice.
