So now to start with the pictures of those models, first the B52, I don't remember which scale it is but its a huge plane to begin with, I believe this plane is meant to be in service for atleast 30 to 50 more years if memory serves right. That would mean it becomes the longest plane type in service. It was developed for carrying nuclear bombs in the cold war. Nowadays it is used for carpet bombing, this is the model I built as will be very visible with the bombs hanging on the model. Another adjustment made to this model are the 3 wires, those are just 3 wires for a special rail system to hang paintings on the wall, due to space limitations those were added so it could hang from a hook on the ceiling.
Now for the B1-B, this is also a bomber like the B52, also used for nukes, and now for carpet bombing. The big difference in specs between a B1 and a B52 is that the B1 can fly at supersonic speeds and has a variable sweep wing concept, which works in the model too.
And now some pictures of the B1-B(the green cutting surface beneath the plane is slightly bigger then an A3 sized paper to give a comparison for the length of the model):
Subsonic flight mode
Supersonic flight mode
Now for one of my favourite airplanes of all time, the Concorde, the first supersonic passenger plane. It is a small plane but cool looking and really expensive lol. I built it in its landed position, sadly over the time 1 of the rear landing gears broke but it still looks good. And it had both the air France and British airways decals and I used the British airways decals to some extend and I painted the landing gears silver and part of the engines black like the real plane has.
Now for something else, a ship, an aircraft carrier to be precise, dont ask me which type or which one it is because I dont know, I bet this one must be like 12 years old, and it shows, it has little aircraft and helicopters on the deck which I lost a few of already, and 1 or 2 of the propellers are missing in action. And the only thing I remember about the build is that I build it together with my father, a few decals have been applied to it.
And now the last plamo model for this post. The space shuttle. In its launching position on its carrier that transports it from its hangar to the launching pad. It is unpainted, no decals aplied, its mainly just a few big pieces, but I always liked the space shuttle(did have another one that was thrown away a long time ago but that was just the shuttle without the launch boosters), I like this model especially because of the carrier and the booster rockets.
And now another model. Yes I wrote that the space shuttle was the last plamo in this post, and that is still true, while taking the pictures of the B52 and the Space shuttle I decided to make some pictures of a model of a trebuchet(did I wrote that right?) that I got as a building kit as a present from a holiday in France I believe. It was simple but that doesn't matter, it works, and while I was making pictures of my plamo I thought this one would look nice too in this list. One funny thing is that the first time I tried this artillery from the middle-ages the bottom of the weight container fell out due to the forces applied to it during swinging
Ok, that's all for this post. And one thing, in plamo, bigger is better ;)
