    This is an open thread for anyone who loves modelling aircraft wrecks and conversions...

    Any era, any type - abandoned aircraft, battlefield wrecks, captured aircraft, test aircraft, special conversions, 'blue cross' aircraft, military aircraft in civillian guise, etc, etc... basically any aircraft in non-standard form.

    Intended as an on-going fun build for everyone. Enjoy! :D

    I'd love to, at some point, try to model one of those derelict/abandoned crates, that was left behind in forrest openings etc. by the Luftwaffe personell....
    I'll be following this thread closely...8)

    I'll be joining in Evan. There'll be one, the remains of a 'donor kit', that can't be anything else other than a wreck!

    Might be a month or so before I do the one mentioned, but I'll try to stick something in sooner, if possible.

    No worries Terry - will be a little while before my own projects start happening, but thought I'd get the ball rolling for anyone else who's interested.

    Really looking forward to seeing people's projects!

    Yep, sure can my friend! Prototypes, Reno racers, target tugs - anything that dosen't fit into the normal group build or other categories!

    What have you got planned?

    I'd be up for this one Evan. The bird is already built, a bf109G trop, I overdid the weathering! It looks abandoned.

    But I have an idea for a diorama. I want to get a 1/48 British vehicle, park it beside the 109 and have a couple of Tommies checking the plane out.

    Something like this.

    Have seen a few pics of abandoned 262's etc in my JV44 book that look interesting, might try some of those OR something else. Don't want it to get too advanced....:oops: :lol:

    Great stuff guys (and thanks Wayne)! Exactly the sort of stuff I had in mind...
    Hoping to see lots of conversion work/ scratchbuilding on this one.

    As it's intended as an ongoing build, I hope everyone can enter something at some stage! :D

    some of those photos Jan are killer!

    I've got a number of conversions planned for my complete collection of RNZAF aircraft -dunno if Il start doing them anytime soon though!

    Later in life I'm planning a 1/72 diorama of the entire Wigram Aerodrome -My own tribute to the men and women who served and died

    .........the other message to "^*^*^%" (It kills me to say it so I won't say it) can be found at New Brighton's beach! :lol:
