The Klungaknull - A Kitbash Project by Old_Pilot

If you don't know what kitbashing is, it's where you take parts of a model and use them to create something different. Check out this twin EDF kitbashed airplane.

The Art of Kitbashing

If you don't know what kitbashing is, it's where you take parts of a model and use them to create something different. In this case, RCGroups user Old_Pilot took two old Dynam ME-262 nacelles and mashed them together with parts from another plane to create this truly unique EDF dubbed the Klunganull. It's made from foam and uses twin 70mm fans. Sometimes kitbashing doesn't end well, but in this case, it looks like it flies great! Awesome job Old_Pilot!!!

Seeing that you put Swedish crown markings on it, you might want to change the name of your model. In Swedish it means something that it too offensive to write here.

It could be....


Put the fans on pylons and re-shape the nose and it could be a "stand way off scale" Lockheed S-3 Viking.

The name of the aircraft


All, the name of the aircraft is a joke that a friend (that lives in Stockholm) and I came up with because of our time spent in the military....
those of you that have been in uniform will understand completely....those of you that haven't, well, what can I say.....kinda had to be there...
and the fact that the entire aircraft was designed around those 2 nacelles....and she does look a lot like a Skywarrior, and a B-47, and a S-3,
and a ......well you get the idea....
