MQ-9 Reaper in 1:100 by Skunkmodels

Recommended Posts

I´d like to present you a rather unusual modelling subject for me, since I don´t do 1/100 - usually. But since this was the prize of an ARC prize raffle I just took my chances and built this nice little Reaper...

 

The kit comes with two models and each of them can be assembled within a couple of hours. I only modified the gear so that it´s retracted, since I wanted to make it "fly" beneath a ceiling.

The happy "customer" for my little drone is collegue P., who was willing to hang it in his office.

But P. wouldn´t be P., if he didn´t had an idea, or request...: "Hajo, that thing´s got Hellfire mounted..."

"...wouldn´t it be cool if the Reaper would ,fire' one of those...?"

Ok, at home I put one of the Hellfires on a long piece of clear styrene, added cotton for the smoke, done!

 

"Missile away!!"

P. says, he´s got to grin every time he enters his office - well, fun at work, my job here is done! :)

That. Is. AWESOME! I can imagine a visitor to P.'s office looking up and seeing a Reaper in the distance! Brilliant work! And the Hellfire is an inspired touch.
