Well folks here you have my most ambitious endevour yet, a DCUC scale Invisible Jet for you Wonder Woman action figure!...This is by far my most ambitious project to date and has been in the works for some time and it is a dream come true to finally see it come to fruition... The hardest part about this vehicle custom (aside from cracking the mysteries of invisibility) was finding a good base to start with...I used a Rescue Heroes jet because it has a good size cockpit (better too big than too small) but it looked dumpy and too Rescue Hero-y so I pulled together a bunch of pieces from various aircraft models I have found at flea markets, garage sales, clearance alise, ect to make longer wings, a more suitable tail, gnarley League worthy engines, and add various paneling to the outsdie chassie to add astetic appeal...The front end and nose were elongated and bulked up using a cheap hobby shop rocket that was afixed and Aves was used to smooth the 2 parts out to give it a more uniform look...This brought the craft to be 24.5 x 18.5 x 9.75 in dimensions...To make the cockpit a little more suitable for WW, I pulled control panels from a few different Star Wars crafts and cut them to fit around her so she has a killer set of knobs, buttons, screens and other high-tech looking crud all at her fingertips...I like how it turned out being a 360 degree control panel that encompasses the figure but still leaves room for her to be able to move her arms ect...After all this, I delved deep into research to find the perfect method to go about making the whole thing invisible...I used an invisibility ritual as described in the manuscripts of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn which appears in the book The Golden Dawn by Israel Regardie rendering the entire craft unseeable...While I am very pleased with the outcome of my first completed vehicle custom, there are a few forseeable drawbacks to having a completly invisible jet such as underwhelming displays, frequent missplacings, and of course stubbed toes form accidental finding...All in all I would have to say this is my best custom to date and as always, comments welcome!

wonderful. its definately there, just invisible. I think is hard to admire being invisible, its totally not like its non-existent or anything, that what civilians are meant to think.

A Rescue Heroes jet seems an odd base for an Invisible Woman...
