Hi everyone, and welcome to the second installment of "Quick Look."
Today, I'll be looking at the Combat Wombat ZHI-111 Chinese assault lander, available at http://combatwombatminiatures.com for $11.
This went together very easy. It also included one of his turned brass barrel (which is very nice) and a mount for it, but I decided to use mine as an unarmed version so I left it off.
There were some slight bubbles especially in the engine intakes but it didn't really take away from the model, but it did require a little bit of work to clean it up
For $11 it's a great shuttle model, something that really fills a niche. There aren't too many shuttle models available out there, and this is quite a nice one. Reminds me a little bit of the raptors from the new Battlestar Galactica series (one of my favorite shuttle models). You could easily fit a squad of 5 and a pilot and co-pilot. Or, use it in a Firefly-type scenario as the transport from the main spaceship.
Here we have it painted up, I think it'll be useful in all types of scenarios. This was my first order with Combat Wombat and I look forward to my next (I'm pretty sure I need the Bullfrog!)!
Coincidentally, this week I received a parcel from Combat Wombat that included this model and the Bullfrog, and I can endorse everything you have said, Mr. H.ReplyDelete
This is a great set of articles so far, H. Keep them coming!ReplyDelete
I love the painting on the shuttle. It's a neutral enough design that it could be used as military and civilian with little or no changes.

Agreed very enjoyable and easy on the eyes reading...
I like your paintjob, I can see this being a common-as-muck workhorse vehicle.ReplyDelete
Where I wasn't convinced by the miniature, I am by the paintjob. Nice review!ReplyDelete
