Okay, physics majors…what’s stoppin’ that -109 from fallin’ over on its’ back…?
Pedro L. Rocha said on September 12, 2018
Good point there Craig! Just how??

Looks like it’s rocked over at the right angle to snag into the branches of the tree (just visible near the wheel well).

Propeller blades buried in the soil can easily carry the weight of the aircraft. That tree is too far in the background to play any role in this scene – note that there is no shadow of that tree next to the a/c. Just my 2 cents…
Great photos as always!

Not sure about the plane being too far. Its and the tree’s shadow are effectively one, so I think it’s resting within four metres of the tree. That said, it’s more likely the prop is a buried deadweight than it is a few branches doing the work.

Engine weight + prop blade, perhaps?

Number 5 is hilarious Rob. Someone has a great sense of humor, however, not sure everybody would get the joke.

Is that black blob by the grille the engine, or is it on a separate sprue? (someone went to a lot of trouble to create this)
Looks like crankcase?

Tom, looks to me like anyone in THIS crowd will get it!
It’s very well done and hilarious!

That kit will need a 55gal drum of super glue! Plus, I’d love to see the diorama our friend Charles King would do with that truck kit.

Not sure what the theme is in this post, but the photos are intriguing and strangely appealing.
Rob Pollock said on September 13, 2018
Dont know if No Comment posts necessarily always have a theme, unless it’s as you say, one of intrigue and appeal.
