My goal for Project Dakkajet was to build said model completely from scratch (or as close as possible ). We started with random junk from his house and from my work. The centerpiece was a set of plastic binoculars that had been sitting in the lost and found box for months. I decided to use that as the jet engines and added some of my Father's empty pill containers for the fuselage.
For the front I wanted to do a WWII style bubble gun/cockpit.
The cockpit was difficult because the plastic did not hold glue very well. It is from one of those gumball style toy machines. Another problem was that the glue fogged up the bubble completely obscuring the inside. I added some plastic trim to the bubble and decided against building another one since it was such a pain. Oh well, no pilot needed. A few more gubbinz and it was good to go.

Just a few bits for good measure. The binoculars are way too heave for the base so I will need to add some weight to it. I had to actually use Greenstuff (first time) to get the base to hold. All-in-all it was a fun little project. I think we are going to do a Battle Wagon next time. It's hard to blog as often as I would like since I have so many hobby projects going on but I will try to pick up the pace and remember to take lots of pictures. Thanks for reading and feel free to post comments.
