In real life, of course, pigs didn't fly until 1909:

Interesting!

Apparently there was plans to have pigeons in bombs to act as the first 'guided' bomb. The plan was the bird would correct the bombs trajectory on the way down from inside by pecking paddles for different directions, thus steering it to its target! Shocked

Nearly as mad as the incendiary bats supposed to be released to attack Japan, with all the wooden buildings

Clearly I'm procrastinating, so much so I built this on Sunday instead of starting my build:




Afghan donkey cart like this one:


However, I finally started tonight.

Plan:


Materials:


Build is broken down to three stages:

1. Rocket/pig/goblin rider;
2. Ramp; and
3. Tower.

I'll see how much I can get built in the next 2-3 weeks before I start painting.

Start of the rocket:


Next stage is glue down the pig, and use Green Stuff to blend in the repositioned legs to the body and the pig to the rocket. Not sure if I'm goin to sculpt bulging eyes or not.

What in Cthulhu's Unspeakable Name is that man doing to that cow, and why do you have a model of it?  Shocked

Also, the goblin-pig-rocket looks like it's going to be properly goblinish, absurd, and awesome. I look forward to seeing it progress!
