1/24 "Golden Griffon" ...Race21...

Recommended Posts

Ok, Ok, Ok, I caved....

Granted with all my other irons in the fire this may take a while, so I am grateful for the Dec 31 end date.

...It may take every bit of it.

The conceptual drawing:

I actually did a thumbnail sketch probably 2 years ago, then did the above colored rendering.

 

I will be making the majority of this up as I go along, but at this point here is the basic concept and list of mods.

 

Reno styled Unlimited Racer, based on the Spitfire.

Rolls Royce Griffon engine with modified Shackleton Contra-rotating propellers

Boil off system for engine cooling and oil cooling.

Cockpit moved aft and modified bubble canopy and windscreen.

Filled and smoothed wings and fuselage.

Modified landing gear.

 

I have been dying to build this, and this is the perfect excuse to do it.

You will have to modify the engine to fit if it's going to be seen, RR shaved the cases to get the 58 to fit in the mk19, I have photos.
