MF 08 (Modified Project No.8)

Gallery Article by Narin on Aug 13 2013



This is another project made from broken models. A friend who I have never met in ThaiMSOT (model Society of Thailand) gave me a box full of un-used spare parts and broken plastic models from various types. Among these treasures (for me) were 2 of F-16 Scale 1:48. They lost most of small parts but still retained the main parts. I remembered that I won a bid without any competitor, a broken Tamiya, Porsche scale 1:24, with cost me 20 Baht (around 0.70 USD). I used a soft vinyl Zaku head as the pilot. This could be a fun project!.

I took out all interior and scratch built the new cockpit. Then cut a wing from each plane and put them together to see the outline. To eliminate the shape of Porsche, I took out the roof and put a new top cut from acrylic and plastic sheet.

The bottom fuselage was made from plastic sheet. The rest decoration was made from various materials such as brass wire, main board from broken mouse, legs of Gunpla etc. I used color spray, weathering with oil paint and finished with matt spray.

Here is my final result. Hope you like it. Thank you for watching.
