Default Warp Eagle / Custom Build

Here is the product of my labour of love over the last few months - a standard Warp eagle with perhaps a unique custom build at the end -

The box -


The finished article -








The base of the pod I painted in gloss black - not accurate I know - however as a tribute to the Dinky eagle paint scheme - and I think it looks better -

Notice the four 'landing' lights on the base- added just for good measure!

Now on to the custom bit -


Yes - also in tribute to the Dinky Eagle Freighter - a freighter pod for the Warp Eagle -


Formed from styrene sheet and tubes, plus a few other bits hanging around -






Side by side in comparison with the original - next job to refurbish it -




You can see the difference in scale of the two pods -


Comments and criticisms welcome of course!

All the best,

Steve

Thanks for the nice comments. I wanted to take the best elements of both the original eagle and the Dinky version and put them together.

If anyone can help I'm after a set of 4 pod booster bells for my next project. Same as the 4 under the Warp pod. Anyone got 4 going spare? Will pay as required.

All the best,

Steve
