Skyhammer 01

Newer Older

The P-72A gunship, codenamed “Skyhammer” was developed by Arcadia Aeronautics for the Kovlakian Airborn Artillery. It was devised as a counter measure to the threat of the new armoured Zeppelins, and proved extremely effective against them. It also saw extensive use in the Battle of Syrrah where squadrons flew low in night attacks to destroy the city’s heavily fortified walls. The plane here is painted in night camo colours and is piloted by Lt Colonel Dirk Salvo. It is armed with two 20mm front–firing machine guns and a 400mm artillery cannon which carries a maximum of six shells.

    Jon, is there a possibility you'll be making a Vic Viper fighterplane..?

    The thought did occur to me - and I'd like to, but it depends if I have time ( I have a 6 month old baby that takes up a lot of my time!)

    The build is great. I love the use of the silver parts.

    Really... this is one of the best MOCs I've seen in awhile. Every little detail is so well thought out and well done. I'd list them all, but I'd start to get very redundant!

    Absolutely magic. Lovely colour scheme and a great feeling of chunky power. Nicely done.

    Do you print your own stickers or do you have them printed professionally (online or locally)?

    The giant guns on the nose bring to mind the gunship from Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind [link]. I don't suppose that was intentional?

    It is fantastic!

    It was definitely an influence - all Miyazaki's stuff is really - I'm a big fan of his work.

    Can't believe I missed the Miyazaki angle -- no wonder I love the guns on the nose so much!
