Since the original island hopper crashed in Johnny Thunder and the Poachers of Prehistory, I thought the Adventurers could use a new plane, so I built, the Island Hopper Mk. II. It's pretty much just the original Island Hopper, but in blue.

I think it looks quite snazzy...

Nice recoloring there Athos!  *sweet*    I like it better it blue now that I've seen it, It gives it a more "Pacific" look, if you get what I mean.
Did you just change the colour or did you perform any other mods?

The snazziness level of that plane is amazing.  I have good memories of that set.  Did you just replace the red with the blue?

A very nice and classic plane indeed, although Iīve to say that I just love the design
of that other grey/blue plane you used for your Poachers of Prehistory story a little more.  :'-)
Itīs a marvelous story and a very cool work, I enjoyed it very much, thanks.
Itīs good to see Pippin safe and reunited with her camera in the end.  *y*

I pretty much just copied the instructions and changed the colors. But there are some minor modifications, mostly because they didn't make the part in the right color. The engines for example are slightly modded. They only have one of these, rather than two, because I only had enough for one on each side. Also there are no windows on the sides, but I plan to fix that with a bricklink order or two... There are a few other mods too, but nothing major.

Glad you liked the story. The plane is pretty much the exact same design as the red one, just in blue. The new plane will be making an appearance in the next story...  ;-)

I think the blue suits the plane better than the red.  Good job in the recolouring

I'm working on the rest of the set pieces now. I've got at least one more minor one to do.
