The King Kong Canvas Eagles Scenario Part II: Kong on the Empire State


The most important piece in setting up our King Kong Canvas Eagles Scenario was getting Kong and the Empire State as a usable mini. But of course, since we are making this scenario from scratch, no such mini existed, and in fact we didn't even really know at the how it was going to work. In the process of figuring it out, we looked at dozens of different options from toy gorillas and bronze casts of the empire state until finally I found a design on Thingiverse.

Inspired I made a quick sketch in GIMP of what I wanted added to the model and sent it to my buddy Coy who has an excellent 3d Printer.

The Design Specs I sent Coy
I had intended for Coy to add a single hex underneath of Kong to better represent what hex he was in. So all you do is rotate the tower and Kong moves into a new space. However Coy came back with a design that featured a hex for both the tower and Kong. A much more logical design in my opinion. And so I with the idea finalized I had him print it.

Coy's 3d Mock Up
Of course I still need to paint it, but with the Kong piece we can truly begin testing our scenario!

At first we will use some standard WW1 planes, and then move on to designing the Curtiss Falcons suspected to be used in the film. Those we will need to make the Aircraft sheets for and of course get some 3D printedmodels off of Shapeways to represent them!

So more King Kong Canvas Eagles to come as we test out our rules!
