The C5 Galaxy in scale

With many of my models in either scale 1:72, 1:144 or 1:700, it is easy to see how big or small each model is in comparision to something else of the same scale. So as promised, here is my C5M Galaxy with an Armor Detachment around the plane.

The magnitude of the size of the C5M. The M1A1s, behemoths by their own right are dwarved by the Giant C5 Galaxy.

Onto other note, its been a tiring week, and it isnt over yet. I hardly have time to fix parts of the Ticonderoga VLS Cruiser. I will get back to it on the weekend i guess. Weekdays are too packed at the moment. Progress very slow for the time being, will speed up soon if my weekends are ok.

JQ Out.

The Sky Giant of the World: C5 Galaxy

They don't call it the Galaxy for nothing. The C5 Galaxy is a Military Transport Aircraft design to provide strategic heavy airlifting. Capable of carrying a load 179,000kg, that is equivalent to 2 M1A2 tanks and probably another M2A2 Bradley and extra baggage. That is most definitely a big load to carry. It is the largest Military transport in the USAF and one of the largest aircraft in the world. Designed to carry oversized and ousied cargo, it is a behemoth to behold.

On other updates, the Ticonderoga is 60% to 70% complete. But with the festive season going on and other agendas i need to attend to, i will be stalling quite a lot. There is still room though for my M1A2 upgraded Tanks. So far i have done 2 and 1 more left to be converted to M1A2, the rest of the vehicles are still awaiting the paint upgraded, including the 1:72 scale M1A2 from the Force of Valour Brand.

Falling out now. Ciao.
My next entry will be featuring the C5M in scale. Showing how big it is.. literally. :p

You want planes? U get them :D

Dogfight, F-22 vs Su-27

Though it is highly unlikely this will happen as the F-22 is capable of firing AIM-120 AMRAAM that are capable of Beyond Visual Range (BVR) targeting and killing of the Su-27, on top of its significantly low radar signature, it is hard for the SU-27 to detect it, but it is a good view of Russian Technology against US Technology, with the two birds in high manoeuvre, it is a wonderful sight, I must admit the shadows of the F-22 and Su-27 spoils it, but nevertheless a good contrasting feature.

Any opinions on who would win? They did do a exercise simulation where 3 F-22 fought with 21 F-15s, in which the final combat result was all the F-15s shot down and none of the F-22 detected. Anyone can differ to that notion?

On other updates, the Ticonderoga VLS Cruiser is well underway, and could finish soon. I seem to be ahead of the yearly schedule. Which is a good thing :D.

Till next entry, RTB!

Joint Task Force. A game i have bought.

Well people, I have stumbled acroos a game when i was in Johor Bahru, Malaysia a month ago or so. The game titled Joint Task Force, uses Command and Control gameplay similar to that of Command and Conquer, only that the Units are all modern day warmachines and personnal. With relatively high action strategies, and realistic scenarios, it isnt as outrageous or as non-realistic as that of the Command and Conquer game. Thus i feature it in my blog.

But with a Gamespot review of 6.5, it is quite a disappointment to the top-notch reviewer, as it explains how the game has no room for errors and how rigid the gameplay can be. And with no muc of a good plot, and too much micro management needed and lousy AI for ur forces u need to spoon feed it with the ltiniest of commands, it is hard to absorb and enjoy the great battle scenes and urban fighting. I trust gamespot a lot to brace the fact it might be a crappy game. But nevertheless, u will hear my own personal review.
