Crashed plane made from a toy kit
« on: November 01, 2020, 11:05:05 AM »
This is an easy step-by-step tutorial on how to make a crashed plane from a cheap model kit.

The final cost is close to 3€... Nice price for a piece of terrain like that...

The impact texturing, dirt etc. is much better than you usually see on crashed planes and the burnout too. Well done!

Great work tereydavi! I have a number of 15mm ish size plastic kits of light planes and airliners in my hobby mountain intended for this very purpose so this is very inspiring.

A crashed airliner would make a wonderful bit of scenery for an AK47 game.

Nicely done.
 It's not as easy as you'd think to represent a crashed plane .
It's balancing act between representing an impact and a recognizable plane wreck.

In reality they can be quite underwhelming . In terms of carnage and creators..(as in the picture)

As for a passenger plane . There's definitely a couple of examples floating around on here. There's a scratch build card one.( Not one of mine though I'm sure I made a small Pulp crashed passenger plane .) Also a 1/48. Hercules transport.l q+

Thanks a lot for your support!!

I had never done a crashed plane before, and was quite fun...

Apart from the plane, I keep a lot of pieces to set them scattered around once I display the plane on the table, to give a realistic appearance of a crash site.

I'll be playing in a week or two, I'll take some pictures and show you...

And once again... Thanks a lot!!

As Tin Shed stated getting the right look is quite hard as you often end up looking like a giant has dropped a toy rather than a crash. I bought the kits thinking ‘what a great idea, that’ll look brilliant’ then realised that to do it well I’d have to stare at pictures of real crashes and my enthusiasm waned :-I then 2020 rolled up in force and decided to leave it to more positive times!

Stay safe,
BALM
