"Daisy cutter"
« on: June 23, 2018, 07:15:34 AM »
Hello,

in case someone is missing the user Bughunter ...
I was not far away, I just created my first dio (with my first painted figure) outside of the focus of this forum.

I call it "Daisy cutter" because of the double meaning.

Created from a kit of Eduard in 1/48. It shows the GBU-43/B in the Air Force Armament Museum in Eglin, Florida.

I has a touch of a stripdown, of course this was soldered ;)


The original:


My interpretation:













Cheers,
Frank

 Frank,
Well Done my old friend. This is the first MOAB I've seen. Beautiful work as always with a special tip of the hat for choosing an unusual subject.
Highest Regards,

Amazing as usual, I like the metal structure and the high accuracy.

Great work on this unusual subject. The guy with the motor scythe is the cherry on top.

Thank you for your nice words RAGIII, Gregory, Giuseppe, Andreas, GazzaS, Juan, Lance and Manni!

This is the first MOAB I've seen.
I've seen a small number, but not as diorama.
Also the Air Force Armament Museum was excited and they put a link to my model on the Facebook page of the museum 8)

Amazing as usual, I like the metal structure and the high accuracy.
Exactly that structure invited my to buy and build that kit, the GBU itself was padding ;)

The guy with the motor scythe is the cherry on top.
Here a figure is really needed to give a impression of the huge size!

Cheers,
Frank
