Slade's Tortillas

Made a airplane? Zeppelin? Something in between? Here's where to put it. (Meant for any new skins/etc.etc/ and not actual new aircraft stats)

Slade's Tortillas

Postby NickHNASB » Sun Mar 30, 2014 6:03 pm

I'd like to introduce the notorious Mexican 'businessman' (smuggler & racketeer) Enrique Mateo ‘Slade’ Bonaventura and his feared squadron.

Slade doesn't need to fly much these days, not since his highly successful Alamo Adventure, which actually had nothing to do with Texas rather it was when he bested a rival called Santa Anna. His business empire is fronted by an (almost) completely legitimate airline business flying the Burnelli designed Loadmaster built by Canadian Car and Foundry who also supply the Huard 'puddle jumper'.

The Tortillas got their name from the unusual shape of most the aircraft design they fly, it was originally intended as a derogatory epithet but has been adopted as a statement of machismo.

Thanks, I'll pass on your complements to the painter.
Normally I paint all my own models but in this case I wanted to ensure the outfit had a different look from my typical style.

I've not added any new aircraft recently but this one is work in progress: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bellanca_28-92

Great work, I really like the full squadron. All they need now is a Zep!

Slade's not a Zep man, he doesn't believe in putting all his eggs in one basket. Several (former) business rivals have learnt first hand how a well planned act of sabotage can bring a zeppelin-based business empire crashing down :twisted:
