Have you seen Hammers builds before, Akula? It'll probably be better than the original plane! Shocked

Indeed.

After some further research it has been revealed that we see the interior of the Vickers Victoria Mk. V, of which only one ever became operational. It was fitted with loud speakers "the black cones in the image" and flew over the NWF bellowing pacifying words to the unruly pathans. This must be the epitome of the British colonialist doctrine of "if they do not understand the Queens English, repeat more loundy".

I was planning to make mine an ambulance plane but I am sorely tempted to make it a Mk. V now.

Your faith in me is humbling. I have a pretty good idea how to go about it, but the banged up bits will require some untried techniques and exploratory builds. To mimic a ripped up aluminum hull I have bought a roll of aluminum tape in the hope it can be used in places where the Victoria has come apart.

I was contemplating loudspeakers on the gondola of my Bloodyear Blomp project (to shout at the unruly Blood Bowl crowds instead of the unruly Pathan) and now have visual inspiration for what they might look like!   Cheesy

Cross-pollination of Build Something entries is a thing, apparently.

It wasn't in English you foolish man. It was likely some public school boy declaiming Cicero or witty epigrams in Latin.

The game is *ON*, and I like it. I feel the pressure from Akula, just to name one, and that is a very good thing...

So, a bit of progress...

I've made a maquette if the fuselage of my Vickers Victoria. Next I am going to clear coat it for the next step. i just had an epiphany about how I am going to do the crashed hull of the thing and make it, hopefully, convincing and appealing.

Not at all. It is from my personal lumberyard. Unfortunately I had no balsa, ash or aspen in stock so I had to go with fir.

Nope. I dont have the tools for it and I don't care to build one.

Lost wax? Papier mache or resin cast? I believe the build rules state that papier mache may only be used for making model volcanoes and then and only then if they actually erupt utilising the medium of baking soda and vinegar.
