This is a photo finish!
Congratulations on a GREAT JOB!
The blue version looks VERY COOL!
Thank you for all of the "LIKES" and kind word!
Going with the "BLUE" version was to just add a bit of variety to my collection. Not only that, but it also sets itself apart from the other Thunder Fighters (very much like how the HBB-TF has (virtually) no markings at all). It adds to the uniqueness of the version as a whole. If you notice, each version that is available, has a unique paint scheme that set it apart that much more from the rest. Yes, I do plan on making each version for my collection.
Once these new cockpit interiors are released, I am expecting to see some of you out there build and post photos (of at least one) of the Thunder Fighter (of your choice).
WoW. Beautiful. - How big is your Thunderfighter fleet at the moment?
Thank you! Currently, I have four. At one, I had 11 in all. I gave all but 2 away. Now, I am rebuilding my squadron.
Here is a photo of my old squadron.
Wow - I like them all. Very impressive collection. I think those who received the 9 fighters were very happy.
Beside the classic colours I like the BSG painting the most.
I think I would make a model as a combination with the wings of the new version and the noses of the old version without the side parts. Thx for the photo.
Could you be a bit more specific, please? What do you mean with new and old version?
old version: second row first fighter - wings backwards and guns without side parts
new version: first row first fighter - wings forward looking and guns with side parts
For my version I thougt about wings forward looking and guns without side parts (and galactica painting).
Ah, I see! So you are aiming at a traditional TF with Mk. III forward swept wings without canards in BSG colours. Great idea! I'm looking forward to seeing it. You may use all the parts of the add-on packages to make your own customized plane. All parts fit together. So, with that said:
That is the GREAT thing about ALL of the add-on kits for the Thunder Fighters, is that they are ALL INTERCHANGEABLE.
So by all means, please kitbash. I would really like to see what you come up with.
This goes for anyone who is thinking of doing a kitbash of their own.
Oh yes, I will try to do it sometime.
Good to know that all parts of each model can be used to create an own one.
Awsome work of the developers - RF and RB if I am right.
Thank you for the kind words!!!
That was the main purpose of designing these kits, is so that the final builder can go ahead, have fun and let his/her imagination run wild and create what ever type of Thunder Fighter they so chose (or can think up).
Revell-Fan does most of the designing, revisions, and clean-up and I do the beta test building.
Looking great! I'm still plugging away at mine, but time has been an issue for me lately. I'd really like to see a Thunderfighter done up in Starfleet colors - I've given it some thought, and may try my hand at it some day.
A Thunder Fighter in Starfleet colours?!?!?!
That would quite interesting to see!!!
I totally agree!
BTW, Rhaven is the "father" of the Mk. III..!
Yes, the MK-III is my creation. The wings and canards are directly taken from the X-29 (FSW).
If you lived within driving distance, I would come over with a lawn mower, or backpack leaf blower, or Weed whacker to try and trade you for that. I'm not kidding either. that is one beautiful bird. I really love this one.
I would just give you one (no trading needed).
Just the fact that one of my projects went to someone who would TRULY appreciate it, is good enough for me.
Well, you know me well enough to know how much I like these. I wonder if anyone else knows how many of these you have given to people? I'd probably give a router just to get rid of it. I have three of them and haven't used one in 3 years!
I have given away MANY of them (I have even lost count). They make for GREAT gifts as well!!!
Every time a new version of a component is created (i.e. like the cockpit interior), I will (usually) give away my older models so that I have room for the new ones. With that being said, there are a couple that I will not give away (no matter what).
1:50 scale "Happy Birthday Buck" Thunder Fighter
I have decided to start a new project. I am going to build the "Happy Birthday Buck" Thunder Fighter in 1:50 scale.
If I am successfully at this, I will be expanding on the diorama that I have already built.
The Thunder Fighter will be a "Skunk Works" project for the Colonial Fleet. This would have been a project that Chief Tyrol would be working on (and possibly even head of) before being assigned to the Galactica.
At first, when I was thinking of this idea, I thought that it would be no big deal (I have worked with small models before). Once i printed everything out and looked through the parts sheets, the whole reality of this project took hold in my mind and I realised what I had in front of me. My first thoust after this was "WHAT THE FRAK DID I GET MYSELF INTO"?
Then once I got started on building the cockpit interior, I got into the build and everything started to just (seem) to fall into place (naturally).
Here are the photos for your viewing pleasure.
I have started with the tub.
