is my Tooned up Macchi. I picked up a few of the 21st Century
Toys 1/32 aircraft kits before Wal-Mart stopped carrying them. You can't
beat a 1/32 aircraft kit for about $11.00.
the kit was so cheap I decided to have some fun and experiment with it.
There was a picture that I saw on the internet and used this as my inspiration.
increased the diameter of the nose and chopped most of the fuselage between the
tail and the canopy out. Shortened the wings by about 2 inches in length
and about ¾ inch in width. I repositioned the pilot and widened the eyes.
I wish that I would have made them a bit bigger so that he would have looked a
little more anxious about having to step out of a burning aircraft. I
replaced the prop with bits of wire. The kit decals were used which went
on really well. The base is a cheap wood plaque with a homemade decal.
The smoke and flames are expand a foam from the local home depot.
