The soda can Bronco OV-10, designed by Aaron Murphy, is now completed. The scale is 1/72. Both the length and span is about 8 inches.
There's actually no secret in fixing the can material together. Use paper card as tabs but remember to
curl the tabs in the shape of the parts to be glued. Maybe if I build again, I'll try to take some build pictures along the way.

I like beer can models. I'd probably build them shiny side out, nevertheless, this looks great.

There are two of these now flying ground missions in the Middle East, attacking ISIS. They have been there a while, since the can carry an insertion team, the Marine corp won't give them up. They are keeping them "for the time being". There are a lot in Arizona, still stored, waiting for recall to duty if necessary. :)

Latest specialized one. Murph's lines are a bit off, even the original.

I admire the OP for sticking to the scale. That clearly shows some skill, speaking from experience! After building these for the better part of 20 years, my old hands wont let me build anything less than 1/48th scale so I routinely scale up. Sometimes I get a little crazy like I did when I built this 1/18th Sr-71 BlackBird. When it was finished, it was hard to find a suitable place to hang it! I love to see builders keeping this art alive-good job!
