Imai UFO Sky 1
1/43 scale injection plastic
The second "hardware" kit I did, Sky 1 from the 70's
This craft for those of you who are not familiar with the
series, sat at the front
of a submarine (SkyDiver) and was
launched by the sub pointing it's nose upwards
when a UFO entered the
Earth's atmosphere. Piloted in the series by Peter Gordino.
Again this has 2 missiles that actually fire from under the wing
tips and has a rear door
that folds down. The small Shado Mobile on the base is supposed to sit inside Sky 1.
Not sure what I was trying to achieve with the base, I wanted Sky
1 in the air and so a
support was used to suspend it above the base.
Being new to the hobby when this kit
was done I guess I didn't have much
idea,so the base and support were just painted
multi colors. Mat
enamels were used and are as close as I could get to the actual
