Re: Can anyone help with identifying these kit parts please?

Yeah, i`d really appreciate it if you knowledgeable folk out there could please take a look at this pics and see if you know what donor parts are used?

I`m making this Blakes 7 craft and its been good fun doing a bit of detective work as to just what Mat Irvine used.

Its pretty much all identified - except for the block of detail at the front, between the two spheres.

Looking closely, i think he put two, maybe three block shaped pieces on the underside and then detailed that and the sides.

But with what?

There seems to be a semi-circle plate with holes in that looks awful familiar, but i can`t place it. Thought it might be from the Tamiya 88mm gun, but its not.

Any ideas folks?

Oh, and that tube/barrel thing at the front - any ideas?








Oh, and these strange curvy shapes at the front with the bronze tubes on - the look an awful lot like those things you get inside an aircraft kit that joins the two wings together and allows them to open together, but i`m darned if i can remember which kit

Think the swingwing parts are from an f14 tomcat, either matchbox or airfix, made both in the past

Hey Ian.

Ta for the pointers - but i`ve managed to find images of both kits, and neither has these things i`m afraid.

So, the search goes on!

How about a Tornado or B1 Lancer?

Hey Marten.

Thought you were on to something there, as i know i made a bunch of Tornado`s but, nope, that`s not it.

All the swing-wing aircraft seem to have the same arrangement of the pivot point being built into the inside of the wings, so am now thinking these tricky parts aren`t from a plane at all.

So what are they from?

I KNOW i know them, but just can`t place them.

Did think they might be from the MPC R2D2 kit, as Matt used one on this here ship but, again, no-go.

Don`t know if you have these identified yet:


The two main large cylinders on either side are fuel talks from a space shuttle kit (1/44th scale?).


That cylinder joining the two small globes on top of those shuttle tanks is the engine part from an ERTL X-Wing (the old 1/48th scale one).


The appendages on the outer surface of the two larger globes are halves of the R2-D2 from the aformentioned X-Wing.


That half dome on the end, with spike sticking out, looks suspiciously like a bussard collector from a TOS Enterprise kit.

Hey folks, ta for the input!

Here`s a shot of the underside - i can spot an X-Wing landing leg on the very top, with the R2 halves on the spheres and the Lunar Module leg struts in there too, but has anyone got an idea just what the big bulky box shapes might be?
