Cross Of Resin

Written by Admin | Tags: ,

Sometimes, when an idea sticks in your head, you just can’t get rid of it. That’s what happened when we had the planning meeting for the Mobile Airfields. One excited comment, and I found myself designing the Seydlitz Class Mobile Airfield as you see before you. I mean, who would have thought that a comment like… “hey, why don’t we make it look like a giant Iron Cross rolling across the battlefield” would get the boss so excited.

As you can see, the idea stuck and I had to go away and make a giant Iron Cross that rolls over the battlefield, crushing all before it and launching waves of Kondor fighters to strike at enemy targets. The Empire of the Blazing Sun Mobile Carrier I designed is still my most complex model, but the Seydlitz, which I named after the Prussian Cavalry Commander Friedrich Wilhelm Freiherr von Seydlitz, took a lot of thinking about! My sketchpad was well used that week.

The crossover landing strips slot together simply, creating the symbolic Prussian cross, and I went for a beefed up hull with nice angular edges. Plenty of Tesla weaponry and this behemoth is ready for action in the New Year. All in all I am really pleased with the model, and I managed to keep the boss happy.
