1/72?? German Haunebu flying saucer
« on: November 02, 2014, 04:51:07 PM »
I saw this recently on a Weird War Facebook page. There's a company in Korea that is doing several types of Flying Saucers, in diferent scales and now they made a Haunebu in 1/72:

After reading the review, I found out that the model is not really a 1/72 one but a 1/48  lol

More detailed photos here:

And where I found mine:

Now I just need to buy a Adamsky type saucer  ;D

But that is an Adamski saucer, just with German markings (and added guns)!*

Oddly enough, I only yesterday ordered the Wave Models 1/48 Adamski Flying Saucer from Hobbylink Japan.  Mine will be piloted by Daleks, rather than Nazis.

There is also a 1/60 version (6 inch diameter), from Atlantis Models.

Both of these are injection moulded plastic kits.

Of course, if the original was actually a hub cap, these scales don't mean much.

* Edit: oh, I understand now.  The linked review says that there are two versions of the Hand & Head kit, one labelled as a 1/72 Haunebu, the other as a 1/48 Adamski saucer.

A heat lamp housing from a chicken incubator, IIRC. The three domes on the bottom (the gun turrets on the Haunebu) were the bulbs.
History viewed from the inside is always a dark, digestive mess, far different from the easily recognizable cow viewed from afar by historians.

I used to build mine of paper: http://tableterror.blogspot.de/2008/05/die-entstehung-des-haunebu-ii.html



Any chance you can still provide the file for this one? The link on your blog is broken alas.
I wish I were a glowworm
'cause glowworms 're never glum
