VTOL's?
« on: September 29, 2013, 05:33:37 PM »
Need some links chaps on where to purchase 28mm VTOLs please. Any size will do as long as it's 28mm.

Figure access not necessary but separate engines are preferable  :)

cheers

A few years ago I got TheGreatQueeg to convert the Nitto SF3D Maschinen Kruger Fledermaus kit to take 28mm pilots.  Still my favourite take

The Avengers' Quinjet toy would make a great one, if you are looking for a troop transport.

You could probably add some weapons to it as well, if desired.

It's very reasonably priced for such a big toy.

There's an Argos link (via E-Bay) in amongst the other links above... currently 12.99. Here are some pix with a Grymn (28mm space dwarf):



With a few minor modifications, it is perfect :)

Although the shop still isn't open you can still get the Old Crow dropship if you email and don't mind a bit of a wait.

Quinjet is a bit on the large size for my purposes (I know I said any size  lol ).

I suppose, thinking about it ones with rotating engines on the side much like the Antenocites one would fit the bill.

Thanks for all the effort chaps, greatly appreciated  :)

cheers

Got that one already bookmarked  ;)

It's for my sloooow Akira project and I just want to compare designs first and see what hasn't been done yet to see if it's viable to scratch one or just buy.

I'll be looking for a tank or two but I'm pretty sure where I'm getting them from (Pig Iron).

cheers

Ahhhh. I did think it was an interesting diversion for you to do sci-fi and not something Japanese... but you're actually doing something Japanese.
