Rokso Space-Superiority Fighter

I had so much fun with the Shiksaa I thought, hey, maybe I could use the same technique again! The nose is a Monogram 1/48 Banshee, the tail a bird-feeder. The wings... Therein lies a tale.

Look at the top view. Pretend the outboard two-thirds were on the opposite wing, making each wing angle forward, with a rounded trailing edge. That's how it was for several months, until I sliced them off, and rotated and swapped them. That little bit of remodeling turned lame-wings into fairly interesting wings. No, not all remodelings work so well!

As for the color... At the last Wonderfest Vince Hoffmann took two pictures of Shiksaa. The second picture came out in a color which I wished I'd actually painted it. Now was my chance, with the Rokso. Besides, I already had a blue ship and a green one. And what color goes good with the great in-between color turquoise? Think "southwestern". Purple(actually, Model Master Napoleonic Violet)! And to make it look like it goes with Shiksaa, I painted a few panels in Model Master FS34092 European I Dk. Green. Can you believe it, it was hours later before I thought, "A rough, tough, bad-ass turquoise fighter? Will you be bringing enough for everybody to have a smoke?"

What's a Rokso? - The Register Of Known Spam Operations (ROKSO) is the sweat and blood of the dedicated Brit spamfighter, Steve Linford. It details the current whereabouts of all the major spammers - The ones that are making a living at making our internet experience as annoying as possible. These spammers "get the word out", no matter how many Chinese servers they have to hijack or cable-modem PC's they have to infect with trojans to send the spam for them. To find these parasites, enter some unique data from the spam you got into ROKSO, and it will show you who the spammer is, and where he's currently hosted, so you can complain about the spam right where the spammer lives, and get him booted from yet another ISP. Also visit Steve's UXN Spam Combat center for an impressive number of tools to use in finding where spammers live and decoding some of the obfuscations spammer's use to cloak where their website hides.
