I started this project a while back with the kind permission of Sixty Driver who made the original masters and Steve of Panzerwerks who loaned them to me. With the announcement of the new Metal Dingo from Westfront Armor I sidelined it and was hoping to pick one up and do a detail job on it. Unfortunately the cost and level of detailed being provided for it meant it wasn't going to be for me. So, on with my own!
In between commercial projects we are building a Bell Sk5 Hovercraft in 1/6. This has been around 3 years in the making so far and we have no idea how many more it will take! The plan is eventually to have a fully RC working model and it already has a full sound system using a Benedini sound module for the Gas Turbine. The lift fan is from one of the original Test tank models used in the development of the SRN Hovercraft. A deal was struck with the Hovercraft Museum at Lee on Solent to acquire one of the 3 lift fans they had. A little piece of history will form the lift for the model when we finally get it to fly.
