V22 in its Airbase

Here is another very simplistic pic of my collectible V22 in a airbase. Nothing much extraordinary though i always wanna try and make something look great with my collectibles. BUt tht always requires painting it over and also having great diorama, which i unfortunately do not have the money for all of it.

Funfact: Did u noe that although its maiden flight was in 19 march 1989, its initial introduction was 8 December 2005, some 16 years later. Crazy shit.

Anyway, it seems to be the future even though its cost is quite hefty too due to the Iraq war.

V22 Part 2

I really dont have much time to do as many models and tht is where my collectibles for my military collection comes in handy. With a lil digital photgraphy effect and imaging.. i can make it look relatively alrite. So anyway, here is the follow up of the V22 Osprey and the colour pic version.

Zoom Zoom (Yes im fully aware tht this Micromachine lacks the fine details)

Although the Osprey cost 70 million now, the US Defense hopes to shave the cost by another 10 million. In any case though, research for new warmachines of the future cost a lot. The V22 Osprey does not even take up a significant proportion and its programme cost is already 50.5 billion dollars in 2005. OUCH

Th progress of my mig 29 is near the completion mark. The primary coat has been totally applied and now i am proceeding to do my final highlight an dfinishing up the Mig 29 and proceeding by painting the Force of Valour Figures.

V22 Osprey in the sky

V22 in B&W

The hybrid of the sky. Half helo, Half plane, This flying machine is iconic to the US Navyand Marine for its land forces operations.

The Osprey is the world's first production tiltrotor aircraft, with one three-bladed proprotor, turboprop engine, and transmission nacelle mounted on each wingtip.

It can carry a maximum of 32 troops and travelled at a max speed of 509 kmph.

It has minimum machine gun armanent. Despite many controversies and issue with the V22, it has performed well in conflict zones and it proven battle worthy as a transport carrier as it has also replaced the CH46 Seaknights in the Marine Corp.

On a side note, Im already attaching the missiles of the Mig 29 together and i will be applying the second coat to make the Mig 29 look pristine and nice. This will also be followed by inking. Things have been pretty much busy still. But at least for now, i have a breather for the weekend in which i can relax before the going gets tough. Too tough to get into my hobbies again. :p

Hey hey,

This is a rather plain picture. as i lack the diorama, but well.. i dont have an abundance of cash. Hence i havent really got nice dioramas. But still love the BFE figures.. They look really awesome. The quality is not bad in my honest opinion. So here they are.. British Troops! Provided by Joshua

SAS Leads the way
GDI Troops Lead by the Special Force Unit with the Jungle Hat, in the plain desert.
