A Work in Progress

I have been working for over a year on a Weird World War II project involving the Eureka “Stukasauruses.”  In an earlier post, I showed the American infantry riding on giant eagles.  I am also mounting Brits on flying griffons.  The scenario I will run at Cold Wars 2015 will involve this giant pterodactyl carrying secret mega bombs to some key Allied facility.  The pterodactyl will be escorted by Stukasauruses.  The Allies will attempt to shoot it down.  I plan to use somewhat modified XWing for this game.

It is not done yet — end the title of the post, “work in progress.”  I plan to add some straps as details and also add a dual machine-gun ball turret on the platform on its back.

For ease of transport, I glued a piece of magnet to its back.  The weapon / driver platform is on a piece of metal which will be affixed to the magnet during game play.

You can just barely see the details on the controller

I’ll post more pictures when I get it finished.
