1/125 Skyhook Models "Luftpanzer" / Iron Sky "Valkyrie"

Gallery Article by Thomas Brückelt on May 21 2018



In the movie Iron Sky ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Sky ) Nazis from the moon attack the earth in 2018. They use the Varkyrie flying saucer for their attacks. I find this vehicle is one of the coolest spaceships seen in a movie ever, the designers did a perfect job! I found the kit under the name "Luftpanzer" (which means "air tank" in German) on the website of Skyhook Models ( http://www.skyhookmodels.com/index.htm ).

About two weeks after my order it arrived safely and I was surprised about its excellent quality. The surfaces are detailed very lovely, the bottom of the display shows the structure of moon´s surface in a perfect way. A rod out of acrylic glass comes also with the kit to fit the model to the display.

I compared some pictures I found in the internet (3D-models, screenshots from the game "Iron Sky Invasion") to the kit and added a few details according to that.

The model was painted with brush. There are four crosses on the decal sheet, which are also in a good quality. Unfortunately I destroyed them with my washing-attempts, so I had to replace them by decals from other kits. 

Further I added the three "white 17s" and the emblem showing the four-leaf clover. The model is sealed with clear varnish.

In the movie it´s said that the flying saucers have a diameter of about 20 m. The diameter of the model is about 16 cm, so the scale is 1/125.
