So yeah uh, I was really keen to get started on this BSC. Was just going to do something simple that I could fit in between my other work. To that end I'd already claimed that fag packets would be used and that's still the case.

The moment the theme was announced I knew what I wanted. A 1/100 scale thunderhawk gunship for my space knights though changed a bit of course due to the limitations of fag packetry. Did some calculations to see if a 1/72 M113 would fit into my fag flyer, it would. Also did some calcs to work out how big the engines would need to be in order to lift both the flyer and its cargo but soon threw that out the window. They'd be super future engines after all and physics and aerodynamics could go do one.

But yes I was so keen that within a couple of hours the body of it was done before I read the further entry that we could not start until the build until the 8th or whatever. I got things going on tho such as looking after a mentally disturbed and ill mother whilst also packing up the house to move her to a new place and doing my own work and well everything else. You forgive me right? Just needed something enjoyable and easy to mess around with.  Smiley

Anyway, enough trying to elicit sympathy from random internet people, wot I did so far;

This is kinda what I wanted;



This is what I started out with;



Then it just sorta grew from that, no real plans or anything.











I shall stop now and be miserable until the 8th or whatever.

When you said fag packet I thought you meant built to the size of a packet
I have never thought of using fag packets to build something

Well it's now the size of several fag packets Smiley

But you know, it was just one of those instantaneous moments of inspiration.

I hope you're not damaging your health just to take part in the contest! Wink

Don't worry, I rarely have more than a few for the kick they give throughout the day. Mostly use the vape.

Are you saving the vape to use as the engines....?

Time for the engines.

To stay in theme with the Fag Flyer aspect of it all I'm using vape bottles and vape boxes as the engines.



Cut out the bottom of the bottles, then cut a circle in the bottom of the bottle to act as an engine cowling.



I'd needed to raise my engine blades up off of the main body of the engine block so used a bit of filter tip cut to size.



Engine blades were cut from cardboard fag paper Smiley First of all I cut in between where the blades would be, greenstuffed the inner part and stretched that out onto the blades so they had a bit of strength when I came to twist them. Otherwise they'd just fall off.



Stuck the engine cowling that I'd cut out of the bottles earlier over the blades.



Then stuck both of the engines onto the body of the fag flyer.



That'll do for now.

with the cost of lung torpedos here being near $30 a pack you would be better off buying the bloody thing from GW than smoking your way to a model!

I used to say stuff like "Smoking is a bit like boxing, you need to make a come back every now and then" and other such nonsense. The heart attack at 42 sucked all the fun out of that past time.

I'd like to make it very clear I do not wish for people to start smoking in order to build one of these, totally not. My mother was a heavy smoker and we got some rather nasty news yesterday and the smoking may well have had something to do with it.  Cry

Use healthy cereal boxes, vitamin boxes, etc. Fag boxes were used as I saved them as trays for putting job lots of 15mm figures I'm chucking greenstuff onto.

Great work on the engines
If anybody needs empty fag packets let me know, I usually just throw them in the bin
