Aeroneffs, Flyers, and all things airbourne.

As the aerial arms race has kicked off we discussed a sticky thread for you to add photos of your finished flyers. So as soon as they are complete put them here. :)

Just to get the thread going here's a photo of HMAS Ariadne.
She's not a scratchbuild, but is one of the Parroom Station models.

A spiffing idea! I currently own two flyers (with more planned):

A British helicopter;


And an airship (heli and Copplestone figure inc. for scale);


Both are scratchbuilt.
I prefer the dirigible to the aeronef, y'know...

These are things I have done in the past. Currently working on a new fleet of Prussian Cavorite Assault boats.

Here comes the "Königin Luise", famous prussian airship, with recent pics from her mission over the Tsingtau harbour battlefield, where she acts as airborne observer for the heavy guns of cruiser "SMS Lusenbrink" defending the british attacks of that peaceful civilian settlement ...
