Erez a blog to making a FightaBoma from a Revell 1:48 P-47D ThunderBolt.

Ok well this site has some good pics of the standard kit...

http://www.aircraftr...Leod/Fea298.htm

Although its a pretty chunky looking aircraft, it wasnt chunky anuf so Ive fattened mine up by adding some width to the hull...

Posted Image

The measurement for these two bits of plasticard is 140mm x 20mm.
Then you cut them into a triangle.
Glue them to one side on the hull... add some suports, let it set and then glue to the other side. Keep the tail together with tape or bands and do the same with the front. Once its all set add some more suports inside and cut away the bit that covers the cockpit.

DAMMIT kr00za I'm looking at that and I already know its going to be great. Why are you such a plasticrad genius?

LoL! - those are rubber bands,Canadion - although you're right, to does look quite appropriate.

Nice start, Krooza. The dimensions look right. Widening the hull is the kind of thing that distinguishes you from most of the rest of us - very clever.

It's an interesting start, but what's your plans on making the general form of it orky? Do you plan on giving it a plasticard skin like I did with bomma? Well, can we at least get a drawing? Pretty please. :love

You've made a good pick on your base model, KrOOza! The Jug (short for Juggernaunt) will look great. Maybe you could put some of those big dual propellers on the front like the ones used on the Soviet Tupolev bomber. This is gonna look cool, KrOOza! Best,

I think Ill clad it in panelz like you did to urz silly buck toofed git ;)
Heres the basic cockpit made.
I did this before putting the nose on as its so much easier to position the bitz corretly ;)
Plenly of room in there for an Ork without the need to cut huge section outa the hull :thumbs

Eres the wings in place.
The plasticard i used to widen the hull changed the angel of the hull so when the wings were on they swept back and didnt look right. So by using the bitz I cut off that bit of plasticard I got the wings back to their propa angle :thumbs

Next up I cut the nose into two halfs and widened it by 20mm.
Now the plane is realy taking shape ;)

Posted Image

Once its set firm I can bend the plasticard to follow the curve of the nose.
It doesnt have to be xzact as I will be adding panzelz all over ;)

Nice choice of airplanes Krooza. You just helped me get past my stumbling block on the Hawker Typhoon I was going to convert. Widening the hulls is pure genius! Have you considered making it a jet?

Oh Nobz! I will follow this thread with great interest :search

I have this A-1 Skyraider that I wanted to convert to a Fighta/Bomba but wasn't too sure about how to approach it. It seems you'll answer all my questions and may also trigger some ideas in my little brain :blush

:cheers

BTW, don't you have a gargant to finish before going to the sky :biggrin

OOOOH! a thunderbolt fighta bomma. nice idea. For a minute there i thought the widened front end was gonna be an UGE air intake for a jet engine, but a big honkin piston dealy is just as good :biggrin I always thought that a wright flyer based fighta bomma would be a great laugh too!

quite a nice start you've got there, Krooza. loving those 'uge exhuast pipes! :thumbs personally I don't think of ork pilots wanting to a fly a slow prop plane... wouldn't a jet be (or at least look) fasta? no matter what I'm sure it's going to look great when you've finished.
