    It is hilarious. Just don’t be surprised if others call it a biplane. (Snoopy’s Bird was the Sopwith Camel = two wings = biplane.)***

    You must rent the movie!! Those Magnificent Men And Their Flying Machines is one of the best films of all time if you like multi-wing, single engine, canvass covered aircraft. You must see it. Cue it up on Netflix, make a bucket of popcorn, put your Ork triplanes on the coffee table, add beverages and enjoy.

    Seriously. ^ Those four sentences are Dr. Pendrake’s official prescription.


    ***Sopwith did make a Triplane. It was the first triplane to be used in combat. It inspired the Germans to build triplanes which led to the Fokker Dr.1.

    Brilliant models, made me chuckle. I love the concept, it just screams Orks.

    True enough... I neglected to notice this difference on my reference pictures as most were of snoopy flying around on his doghouse :facepalm:


    I got my pictures of my savage orc boys as well!

    Its a tiny start to a Mordheim Savage Orc warband! Excuse the bases, they need more work. Plus they are round... :hurting:

    I got six of them in total, these two could function as the "leadas" armed with a spear/shield and choppa/shield:

    Two of the grunts, with spears (stikkas?):

    I used a sampling of lizardmen bits on these guys too, as they would not be out of place in the jungles of Lustria:

    And lastly two arrow boys:

    I want to add some tattoos and stuff, but am too nervous to attempt it :bucktooth:

    After a full day of casting and assembling, the Flying Circus has grown by five more triplanes!

    All the pieces prior to assembly:

    ... and all put together!

    On @pendrake 's suggestion and @Lord Agragax of Lunaxoatl 's inspiration, I was watching the Magnificent Men and their Flying Machines will I worked on this project all day. Pretty funny movie! Granted it was an older one, with a ton of Hollywood cliches and a ton of European/American stereotypes, but it was a funny romp :joyful:

    Triplanes Phase 2 is in full swing! :artist:

    Honestly, I absolutely adore these. So inventive and innovative, and not only making some but casting some more as well! I’m honestly not worthy! ;)

    Yes Magnificent Men is a very funny film. About the stereotypes, I believe they were mainly done to make the comedy even funnier, especially Gert Frobe’s marching German Officer, who’s probably one of the best characters in my eyes.

    I dare you to design an Ork aircraft racing game based upon the film - that’s your extension task!
